What the Press say..........
A new DVD release that appeals to the nostalgic senses, and covers half a century of railway operations in and out of the Capital.
The film quality, as you would expect, is more variable than contemporay film, but what is lost in picture standard is more than made up for in interest value. There are too many fascinating scenes to recall, but we were delighted by the large number of scenes of early diesels in action – Recommended.
