This England - - This England Gifts -

The set in­cludes: Bri­tish Steam in the 1950s & 1960 DVD

Dur­ing the fi­nal decades of steam lo­co­mo­tive op­er­a­tion on Bri­tish Rail­ways, keen am­a­teur pho­tog­ra­phers cap­tured fas­ci­nat­ing footage of the end of an era. This pro­gramme brings you some of these unique movies, in­clud­ing steam work­ings at Clapham Junc­tion, the Great Cen­tral Line, Stanier Pacifics on the West Coast Main Line and much, much more (run­ning time: 120 mins).

The Power of Steam DVD

From the heyday of their work­ing lives to con­tem­po­rary footage of those great ma­chines which are still with us to­day, this film ex­plores the steam lo­co­mo­tive at work through­out Great Bri­tain, each one a por­trait of the power of steam - whether it’s stream­lined ex­press, a slow heavy goods train or a com­pact col­liery en­gine blast­ing up seem­ingly im­pos­si­ble slopes, all dis­play their power through clouds of smoke and steam. (run­ning time: 50 mins).
