Category: Special Interest
Rating Info: Exempt
Info: This is the first of a series of five 100 per cent archive film programmes which traces the story of steam locomotives during the middle years of the 20th Century. Our starting point is the great amalgamation, the Grouping, of the Victorian companies in 1923 to form the "Big Four" railways: The Great Western, the Southern, the London, Midland & Scottish and the London and North Eastern. Using unique archive film of the late 1920s, we first examine the stock inherited from the constituent companies.
