A valued supplier of early material, Bob Todd, has allowed us to bring to life steam on the Great Eastern lines from Liverpool Street and Kings Cross. Over 30 minutes is spent on the steam suburban services to Edmonton, Enfield and Chingford, steam to Epping and Ongar, the North Woolwich branch, steam in the Lea Valley to Bishops Stortford and a railtour over the Colne Valley line. Cambridge follows before visiting Kings Cross and lineside locations to Hatfield for express and suburban workings. Ex-LNER locomotives featured are N7, N2, L1, J50, J15, J17, B1, B2, B12, B17, A1, A2, A3, A4, V2, 01, 04 backed up by Britannias and J69 at Liverpool Street and the odd WD and 9F. The last few minutes remember the early diesel changes on the ECML when Deltics took over from Pacifics and Kings Cross station was rationalised for electrification. A truly magnificent record of events from 1957.
