Railway Archive Films

These DVD’s are full of archive films from the past. They show our railways in times gone by and illustrate, in full colour mostly, what it was like in pre-privatisation days. See blue liveried Bulleids and Kings in Steaming through Wessex, or a gentle journey along the S&D in Somerset & Dorset Remembered. Cam Camwell filmed the decline in our railways in the 1950s. His films are available in three DVDs, as too are the Richard Willis collection of superb 16mm films.
