Harrogate And District
After views of Leeds Central Station, Bramhope, Arthington Junction and Pool-in-Wharfedale feature, followed by Harrogate - which in 1964 was a busy rail centre - handling both freight and passenger traffic. Diverging from the Ripon line on the northeast outskirts of Harrogate was the line to York, and on this route Starbeck and the Boroughbridge branch are shown.

North of Harrogate, workings are shown at numerous locations, including Nidd Bridge and Ripley Junction, most stations between Ripon and Northallerton plus a journey from Ripon to Melmerby Junction and Masham. In the programme are ex-LNER classes including A1s, A3s, A4s, B1s and K1s plus diesel types ranging from shunters and DMUs to Type 4s and Deltics. Filmed between 1961 and 1967, this DVD is a fascinating visual record of a through route that has now passed into history.

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 DVDs detailing the last decade of British mainline steam operations.
