Full description from the producer:

Classic scenes from the celebrated BBC television series. In the late 1950s and early 1960s, the BBC broadcast a series of television programmes called Railway Roundabout, featuring train lines which proved to be on the point of closure and locomotives that were about to disappear forever. The archive film footage has been transformed into four separate Railway Roundabout DVDs, all superbly recreating the lost age of steam.

Take a fascinating look back at lines such as the Wye Valley and Spey Valley, take a trip to King’s Cross shed and get an insider s view of York signal box and Bewdley station on a busy bank holiday, as well as seeing engines such as the Brighton Belle and the new Midland Pullman.

Disc 1: 1958 & 1959

Disc 2: 1960, 1961 & 1962

Disc 3: Northern Europe & Southern Europe

Disc 4: End of the Line & Revisited
