We originally put this volume together over 10 years ago but after we received much more North Western film we abandoned its release and instead made the 10 volume series "Along LMS Lines". However the demand for LMS steam scenes seems insatiable and so we have decided to release this volume as the first of a new series. Some sequences appear in "Along LMS Lines" but we are sure you will enjoy this volume in its own right! More "London Midland Steam Miscellanies" will follow using previously unseen material.


We begin at Preston with plenty of steam action around the station area, including the engine shed, and then head north. After passing through the 1939 closed station at Barton & Broughton there is a visit the signal box. Brock station also closed in 1939 but there were water troughs nearby. Here, 45531 is making an impressive display dousing its train! Then on to Garstang & Catterall where the local pick-up goods is shunting the yard, and onwards to arrive at Lancaster.


The route of the Midland Railway’s pioneering electrification to both Morcambe and Heysham is covered and includes one of the very last times a steam hauled breakdown train was called out. There is also a journey along the "Little North Western" route from Settle Junction to Lancaster.


We return to the West Coast Main Line and visit Hest Bank and Bolton-le-Sands, before finally arriving at Carnforth. This last bastion of steam is covered in detail and we witness the comings and goings plus the daily routines of a working steam depot before it ceased forever.


All the archive film is in colour and mostly from the last few years of steam traction on these routes. An authentic soundtrack has been added along with an extensively researched commentary.
