Marsden Rail

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 steams' last decade and the full emergence of the diesel locomotive.

For over twenty-five years after steam ended, he captivated audiences throughout the country with his unique film collection that captured steams' 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 a superb range of railway videos detailing the last decade of British mainline steam operations.
