Railway Roundabout - 1959
In the late 1950s and early 1960s the BBC broadcast a series of television programmes called Railway Roundabout. These programmes featured many lines which were later closed and locomotives that were about to disappear forever. Filmed in colour and black and white and produced to professional broadcast standards these titles have stood the test of time and are a real insight into the Steam Era in Britain in the 50s and 60s.
Highlights of this fascinating DVD include views of the ex-GER "E4" at Cambridge and the closing of the Wye Valley line. Heading north we view the traffic on the scenic Skye line which runs from Fort William to Mallaig. Viewers then visit a Worcestershire branch line which is followed by a trip to King's Cross shed. Other locomotives and stock featured include the Midland "compound" number 1000 and the "Brighton Belle."
