The Severn Tunnel Banker
  (Enlarge)  
Filmed by the Bristol Film Society shortly before the final steam workings from Severn Tunnel Junction. The locomotive featured is Large Prairie No. 4160 which fortunately still survives today at the West Somerset Railway. The DVD features the operation to prepare No. 4160 at Severn Tunnel Junction depot for its day's work banking through the tunnel and up to Pilning following the nearly 4-mile route.

No. 4160 was, like its fellow members of the class based at Severn Tunnel Jct in the final days, saved as they went to Barry following withdrawal. We follow the story of No. 4160 into preservation and of its final day in operation on the West Somerset Railway and also the story of the final driver on the day, Eric Broom, who was once a fireman at Severn Tunnel Junction. We delve into the history of the tunnel and hear from an engineer who was involved in the maintenance of the tunnel on a day-to-day basis.
