Marsden Rail 13: Brakevan To Whitby
In this DVD, some of North Yorkshire's long lost branch lines are viewed with the main feature being a ride on the daily pickup goods train from Malton to Whitby on a glorious winters day.
We begin by following the last goods train from Malton to Kirkbymoorside and look at the line from Pilmoor to Gilling, plus a B1 Class loco on a special passenger train at Coxwold.
The final part of the DVD features a ride on a DMU from Whitby to Scarborough on the now closed Coast Line.
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.
