In the early 1960s, Britain's network was contracting rapidly and, ironically, just as the decline was forcing closures, a cost-cutting type of motive power was entering service - the Diesel Multiple Unit. Yorkshire-based amateur cameraman, Frank Dean, ensured that a record of threatened lines was made before they disappeared forever and he spent the summers of 1964 and 1965 filming rural routes in his native county. This programme is compiled from Frank Dean's film library and features three routes - two of which have survived, against all the odds, into the 21st century, although their appearance has changed out of all recognition.

The first film features the 20-mile long route from York to Harrogate via Knaresborough and Starbeck. Filmed from service trains and the lineside, many the stations retained their original architectural features, with manually-operated level crossing gates still an everyday sight.

A return journey from Malton to Pickering and Whitby is next, a route that was severed between Rillington Junction, near Malton, and Pickering in 1965. This film shows the route across the North Yorkshire Moors, prior to development as one of the country's premier heritage railways. also features Whitby, where freight traffic was still an important contributor to the railway's business.

The final film is a return journey from Whitby to Middlesbrough via Battersby Junction on the picturesque Esk Valley line and, once again, the film is a poignant reminder of how the stations and halts have altered since the Beeching era.

Several different variations unit are seen action; in particular the Metro-Cammell Class 101s and Birmingham RCW Class 104s. BR green and later corporate blue units are seen together with steam and diesel locomotives, providing a nostalgic reminder of the British Railway scene in the mid-1960s.

Modern Image Series No.15: Heritage DMUs on North Eastern Lines  (60-mins)


Ref: CP151D


Price:12.95 (including VAT at 20% for customers in the UK & EU)

In the 1960s Britain’s rail network was contracting at an unprecedented rate, particularly in rural areas. Even where routes were not under threat of closure it was inevitable that much of the Victorian infrastructure and architecture, which provided great interest for rail enthusiasts, would be swept away in an effort to modernise Britain’s railways and reduce costs.


Yorkshire-based amateur cameraman, Frank Dean, felt it was important that a visual record of these lines and structures should be made before they disappeared forever and, using his privileged position as a senior British Rail engineer, spent much of the 1960s and ’70s filming rural lines in the North East of England. By then, passenger services on such lines were handled almost entirely by diesel multiple units and, in filming the numerous wayside stations, Frank Dean secured a unique record of the various ‘First-Generation’ DMU types in use at the time.


The first part of the programme follows the 54-mile route from Hull to Scarborough, with its numerous intermediate stations. Filmed between 1967 and 1969 from regular service trains, and from the lineside, many of the stations still retained their original architectural features, with manually-operated level crossing gates and ex-NER board signals still an everyday sight.


Following this journey, the busy junction station at Church Fenton on the Leeds-York line is shown, with a variety of first-generation DMUs at work in the early 1980s.


Finally, the ex-North Eastern Railway branch to Alston, which diverged from the Carlisle to Newcastle line at Haltwhistle, is featured.


The branch first came under threat of closure in 1959 but survived a further seventeen years, finally closing in May 1976, giving it the dubious distinction of being the last branch line to close in rural North East England. Film taken in summer and winter shows the picturesque 13-mile branch in detail, including the last-day workings which attracted thousands of enthusiasts.

This comprehensive video record, transferred from colour film taken by local cameramen looks at some of the long closed lines and stations which formed part of the Fife's intricate railway network, which existed until the early 1970s. Filmed in a wide variety of locations, the programme features many locomotives that were the ‘standard’ steam types found in Fife. These include Class A4, A3, B1 V2 J36, J37, J38 AND WD’s, plus early diesel railcars and shots of the short lived ‘Clayton’ diesel locomotives.

Until its closure in 1969, the Waverley Route served the border towns and villages between Carlisle and Edinburgh. The industrial towns of Hawick and Galashiels contrasted sharply with the lonely beauty of Falahill, Shankend and Whitrope Summit, names that evoke memories of hard working steam locomotives as they pounded up steep gradients. From D49s in 1959, A1s, A3s, A4s, B1s and V2s in the early 1960s, to Claytons and Peaks after the end of steam, we trace the changes in motive power, including scenes on the last day of passenger workings. Leisurely trips on the branch lines to Kelso, Langholm and Selkirk, with studies of Galashiels, Hawick, St. Boswells, Shankend and Stow complement a superb final rail travelogue from Carlisle to Edinburgh featuring almost every station on the route.

Edinburgh - or 'Auld Reekie' - boasted an intricate network of suburban and freight lines until the sweeping closures of the nineteen sixties. In this programme, many of those long closed lines and stations are featured, from the impressive Princes Street Station to outlying stations such as Slateford and Portobello. Recorded at a wide variety of locations, many classes of steam locomotive are shown at work. The transition to diesel traction is also well documented with 'Deltic', Type '4', Sulzer 'Type 2' and 'Clayton' locomotives prominent. To the north West of Edinburgh lies the famous Forth Railway Bridge, opened in 1890. Included is footage of a ferry crossing from the South end of the bridge of North Queensferry. No look at Scotland's capital city would be complete without views of Waverley Station and scenes here feature LNER and NBR loco types.

‘The Granite City’ - Aberdeen, was the focus of several branch lines, plus routes from Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness. Despite some dieselisation in the 1960s, steam workings still survived particulary on the southern routes from Aberdeen, and several impressive scenes are featured in and adjacent to the city's Ferryhill locomotive depot.

North of Aberdeen, a branch led to Fraserburgh and nearby Peterhead, the Peterhead line diverging at Maud Jct. West of Fraserburgh lies Banff, whose branch line connected at Tillynaught Jct. Superb film captured Banff’s daily steam hauled ‘local’ including last passenger train in 1964.

A circular railtour in 1963 from Elgin to Forres via Craigellachie, Grantown-on-Spey and Dava provides a fascinating view of the network of lines and small wayside stations that once served this beautiful but sparsely populated area. A remarkable 1930s colour sequence features one such station, Dandaleith which handled traffic for the nearby farms and distillery.

Of routes from Aberdeen, the Deeside line to Ballater was the most prestigious, Ballater being the station for the Royal Family’s summer home at Balmoral. Footage of two Class B1 4-6-0 locomotives at the head of the last steam-hauled Royal Train to Ballater contrasts dramatically with views of the demolition crews at work following the line’s closure in 1966.

The third main Highland route linked Dunblane to Oban, via Callander and Killin Junction, where steam operated the Killin branch until closure. Clinging to the slopes of Glen Ogle, this scenic route closed in 1965 following a rockfall. Crossing to ‘Fingal’s Cave’ on the island of Staffa with scenes of Iona and the steamship ‘George the Fifth’ rounds off the programme.
