Diesel & Electric on 35mm, volumes 1 & 2
This is some of the very best quality motion pictures ever taken of the BR modernisation period.
Mainly from the 1960s, showing all sorts of diesel-hauled trains in action. There are also electrics going right back to the 1930s, Underground trains, 1960s AC electrics, feature items and much much more.
100% in colour, featuring over 150 separate shots taken by British Transport Films but never actually used. The majority consists of magnificent runbys from the “pre-blue” era with further classic material from the late 1960s and the early ’70s.
