Vol.175 - East Anglian Memories

Ref: BR175D



The first in a series featuring the lines in East Anglia in the 1960s; from Liverpool Street in London to the North Norfolk Coast, from Fenchurch Street to Shoeburyness and many more in between.

Steam was eliminated from East Anglia early during the changeover period from steam to diesel and so footage is quite rare. However here we feature a variety of steam scenes as well as some early diesel scenes with both green and blue liveries including some interesting DMU journeys over long lost lines.

In 1970, we witness the early days of preservation at Chappel & Wakes Colne station (now the East Anglian Railway Museum) with the arrival of "Gunby" from Harlaxton Quarry and Fred Youell’s Class N7 0-6-2T No.69621, from Leeds via Lincoln and Colchester.

Early scenes on the North Norfolk Railway contrast vividly with more recent steam at Sheringham and Holt. There is some interesting DMU activity around Cromer Beach.

We journey over the Marks Tey to Sudbury line in 1967 with DMUs and visit Wisbech, Kings Lynn, Hunstanton, Ipswich and Yarmouth, with scenes over the years from 1967 to the present day.

Locomotives seen include Britannias, J15s and ex-LMS and Standard tank engines on the Southend Line. A veritable miscellany!
