About this deal

The titles are: 'Flying Scotsman', 'City of Truro', 'Duchess of Sutherland', 'Princess Margaret Rose' and 'Super Power British Pacifics'. was to be the immortal “CITY of TRURO”, the first man-made machine anywhere to be recorded at a speed in excess of 100 mph. With the support of the Merchant Navy Locomotive Preservation Society, we see the engine being prepared at Stewarts Lane for a day out in the Garden of England, wearing the Golden Arrow headboard.

Today, from the Sprinter speeding through the West Riding to Manchester Airport, we get only hints of that world, buried beneath the greenery — or the industrial estates — which have grown up over the old goods yards. Temporary disabilities such as broken bones, or even postoperative confusion, are not classed as chronic disabilities or impairments. Way back in the 1960s, when steam was on the way out, a group of kids decided they simply weren’t prepared to let the Merchant Navy class die – so they bought one straight out of BR ownership!

What the railways have gained in efficiency as people carriers - which is, after all, what they are there for — they have lost in diversity. We can take it as read that railway enthusiasts will enjoy the new insights to be found within these pages but I hope a wider audience will enjoy it too.The collection of colourful posters, postcards and other replicas is great for invoking memories in the older generation or for bringing history to life for a new audience. The item was for a christmas Present so havent seen it on the DVD but all packaging was good, then I wrapped it in Cristmas paper.

The film takes a look at the engine’s performance on that trip including detailed footplate and lineside coverage as the crew worked to get the most out of the mixed-traffic engine. Although it is fashionable to criticise today’s railways, for the most part they offer a more efficient and reliable service than ever before. Steam locomotives were first developed in the United Kingdom during the early 19th century and used for railway transport until the middle of the 20th century. The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products. The photographs portray railway centres from Basingstoke to Edinburgh; branch lines from the Isle of Wight to Wensleydale; locomotive sheds from Devons Road to Dalry Road; trains in action on the East Coast, Midland, Great Western and Southern main lines; and pre-Grouping examples of the rapidly disappearing semaphore signal.Legendary steam railway locomotives such as Flying Scotsman, Mallard, Stephenson’s Rocket and City of Truro have been household names for generations and are now owned by the public. This set the pattern which has developed all across the country so it is fitting that this DVD covers a summer's day journey from London to Bristol and back with one of KGV's siblings, King Edward I.
