If you liked Pacifics, then Doncaster was the place to be!
In addition to A1s, A2s, A3s and the legendary A4s, Britannias, Bulleid Pacifics and even an ex-LMS Coronation make an appearance.
Doncaster’s locomotive works – The Plant – and the nearby shed are visited with a wide variety of classes shown including B1s, K1s, J50s, N2s, O1s, O4s, V2s, WDs, BR Standards and early diesels.
Together with lineside footage at Rossington, Hatfield and Retford this programme is a fascinating reminder of East Coast operations in the 1960s.
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 videos detailing the last decade of British mainline steam operations.
