A study of the unique mainline DC electric route connecting Manchester and Sheffield. The 40 mile route penetrated the Pennine barrier at Woodhead, before descending to Manchester and was Britain’s first main line to use overhead electric power when opened in 1954. Primary motive power was the1500V D.C. EM1 (Class76) and EM2 (Class 77) electric locomotives. The EM2s were sold to the Netherlands Rlys, but the CL 76 continued until the lines closure in 1981. Scenes at Sheffield (Victoria), Rotherwood, Wath, Worsborough Bank, Penistone, Dunford Bridge, Woodhead, Torside, Guide Bridge, Manchester (Piccadilly) and other locations were recorded -some with original sound - between 1954 and 1984 and provide a fascinating reminder of this magnificent route.

Many rail enthusiasts were drawn to Scotland in the 1960s to record steam hauled expresses, particularly between Glasgow and Aberdeen; but the often overlloked much of the everyday scene on Scotland's secondary lines. This programme, filmed mainly in the early 1960s, concentrates on the lines and branches that fed both the East and West Coast Main lines north of the border, many of which are now closed.

This nostalgic journey starts from Leeds with a railtour that, after pausing at Carlisle, proceeds to Hawick on the "Waverley Route". Leaving Hawick, scenes at Jedburgh and Galashiels are followed by a journey between Edinburgh and Galashiels via the Peebles branch. Further west, lies Dumfries on the former GSWR route to Glasgow. Here a wide variety of steam traction is viewed, together with scenes on the Kirkcudbright Branch.

Travelling north-west, suburban scenery displaces the rural air of Dumfries as the line to Glasgow from the Clydeside resort of Gourock is traced during the last summer of steam operation. Heading eastwards from Glasgow, the Forth crossing at Thrisk is the start of a journey through Alloa and Dumfermline towards the Fife rail centre at Thornton Junction, a journey that also includes views of the Charleston, Kelty and Kinglassie branches. The now closed line from Thornton, around the Fife coast to Anstruther is viewed together with industrial action on the Wemyss Private Railway before moving northwards to Forfar.

Several branch lines around Forfar are featured, folloed by arrival at the "Granite City", Aberbeen. From here the 43 -mile branch to Ballater on Royal Deeside is travelled with every station on this picturesque route recorded by the cameraman. A fitting finale to the programme is the arrival in 1961 of a railtour, appropriately headed by ex-GNSR No.49, at Banff Bridge and Macduff, on the Grampian Region's north coast.

Between 1966 and 1970, more than four million tons of stone was transported by rail from Magheramorne, near Larne, to Belfast for use in the construction of the M2 motorway. This immense undertaking was carried out by daily steam-operated workings that consisted of specially constructed side-discharge hopper wagons, powered by 2-6-4 tank locomotives, known as 'Jeeps'. These workings were the last commercial use of steam traction in Northern Ireland and the last example of revenue-earning broad-gauge steam operation in Great Britain. Other parts of the Northern Ireland rail network also feature, including the line to Londonderry, together with scenes at Belfast's York Road Station, with Beyer-Peacock built 0-6-4T 'Lough Erne', plus the 1970 'Colmcille Railtour' headed by ex-GNR 4-4-0 No. 171 'Slieve Gullion'. This video is a vivid reminder of the final years of steam traction in Northern Ireland.
