From the Victorian era to the 1950s, London was the hub of Britain’s massive railway network. A decade later, it was barely recognizable as steam locomotives vanished and electric and diesel power took over. The romantic and bygone age of steam railways comes back to life in these truly unique, rarely seen films. Archive footage is combined with the stories and reminiscences of those who worked the locomotives and stations. From the early 1900s to the leaner rail system of the late 1960s, revisit a Golden Age when Britain's railways were the envy of the world.
