In the 1960s, the railway network was radically changed as British Railways carried out its modernisation programme. The British Transport Films unit and the TV news captured this changing scene, but much of the footage was never released.
Now, for the first time, the unseen BTF archive has been compiled to tell the story of the railways in fabulous colour. Looking at the networks in the capital city, these include: Southern steam at Waterloo (with Nine Elms depot), all the major London stations, The Blue Pullman and early diesels, The Golden Arrow and Night Ferry service, goods and mail, steam on the Metropolitan Railway and building the Victoria Line.
