Cumbrian Railways DVD
A Golden Age
Written and Produced by Andrew Leitch
Capture the past in this unique film that takes you on a fascinating journey from the very early days of the railways.
Using rarely seen archives the programme re-lives the glory days of steam. There is marvellous colour film of lines in their heyday, lines that are now closed and fallen derelict. The railways had a profound effect on this rural county; everything from our diets to the landscape. They brought communities together and the people who worked on the railways became communities themselves. From the earliest times to the preservation societies that are keeping the great days of steam alive today, this film is a glorious journey into the past that you are unlikely to forget.
