Ref: BR158D



The third in our series of archive films showing the general scenes of the Southern Region in the 1960s with both service trains and enthusiast rail tours. This volume was filmed between 1959 and 1967 and covers railway locations from BASINGSTOKE to MICHELDEVER, EASTLEIGH, FAREHAM, GOSPORT, PORTSMOUTH and the ISLE-OF-WIGHT. Many Southern classes are seen including Lord Nelson 4-6-0s, ex-LSWR T9s, Bulleid Pacifics, USA, L1, M7, E1 and B4 tanks, Q1, N class Moguls and BR Standards. Early preservation scenes of 34023 contrast with previous BR service views. There are even brief scenes of ex-GWR and ex-LMS locos on inter-regional trains. We visit the Mid-Hants railway at Ropley in pre-preservation times with 31768 4-4-0 on a railtour. At Eastleigh there are many scenes dating back as far as 1959 including views inside the Locomotive Works erecting shop. We visit the shed to see the many classes of engines present including LSWR T9 No.120. Eastleigh was the junction for Fareham and Portsmouth and we visit Droxford and Gosport on railtours before arriving at Portsmouth Harbour. Finally we visit the ISLE-OF-WIGHT for extensive coverage of the last O2 tanks on the Southern at work on the Ryde, Newport, Cowes and Ventnor lines, including the last day of steam.

Apart from a few scenes, all the material is in colour and the film has an extensively researched commentary with an authentic sound track.
