A major rail centre on the West Coast Main Line, the city was a fascinating place in the early sixties and this DVD shows the scene before the diesels arrived in force.

The programme features extensive coverage of the station and MPDs together and, in addition, there are journeys on the Silloth and Langholm branches. During this programme over 160 engines are featured - over half of them named! As the film progresses the numerous ex-LMS and LNER locomotive classes give way to BR 'Standard' classes in the final run-down of steam traction.

Between 1959 and 1968, railway enthusiast and cine-cameraman, Michael Marsden, recorded views and sounds of the rapidly changing face of Britain's rail network. For over twenty-five years after steam ended, he captivated audiences throughout the country with his unique film collection that captured steam's last decade and the full emergence of the diesel locomotive. The blending of this film and that of other cameramen with true sounds of the era, plus an informative narrative, has resulted in the creation of this superb range of railway videos detailing the last decade of British mainline steam operations.
