The British Railways box set is a nostalgic look back at some of Britain’s best loved lines from a bygone era. Throughout the first half of the twentieth century the British Isles was a thriving network of local branch lines and byways.

 WATERLOO SUNSET: The Southern Region’s last steam-worked main lines from Waterloo to Salisbury and Weymouth are recalled on this all-colour programme which features cine film made between 1958 and 1967 by John Laird, Brian Robbins and Geoff Todd.

RAILS IN THE ISLE OF WIGHT: Island railways have a particular fascination, none more so than those on the Isle of Wight. In this programme, produced from films made by railway enthusiasts who visited the island from the 1950s to the present day, we present aspects of the changing face of the island’s railways over the last forty years.

VINTAGE SOUTHERN: This programme offers much rare footage made on the railways of the south east of England between the 1930s and the 1960s. For anyone interested in the Southern this DVD provides a delightful miscellany covering many aspects of railway activity in the south east of England over a 40 year period.

BEWDLEY TO BLAENAU: This programme begins with a trip up the now preserved Severn Valley line from Kidderminster to Bewdley. Both ex-GWR diesel railcars and steam locomotives are seen before we head across the River Severn to explore the branch to Tenbury Wells and Woofferton.
