Vintage Cab Ride 1971 Part 1: St.Pancras to Market Harborough


Vintage Cab Ride 1971 Part 1: St.Pancras to Market Harborough

Ref: TV738D


This programme is truly unique. We take you back to 1971 to experience a cab ride along the former Midland Railway from St.Pancras to Market Harborough.

Originally the professionally filmed footage was taken for use in an Advanced Passenger Train (APT) driving simulator but was never actually used. At the time of the cab ride a whole fleet of now long vanished locos worked the Midland Main Line services. You see countless Class 45s rushing past on expresses, the slightly less powerful Class 44s on freight and Classes 20, 25, 31 and 47 provide the supporting cast.

There are old semaphores, long forgotten loops & branches, and stations years away from modernisation. In addition to the extensive cab footage, lineside material from the period is also included plus a view from the 1990s at a few select locations.

Wolverton Rail Note: Contrast this video with "Cab Ride 09: St.Pancras - Sheffield" filmed in May '86 (RS650D) and the more recent "Midland Main Line" (VI990D) where it looks completely different and a lot of railway has gone.
