Enjoy the atmosphere of a busy railway centre in the 1960s, with over 50 steam-hauled and 15 diesel-hauled trains shown and freight workings threading through the heavy holiday traffic. Dwindling freight traffic and ‘Block’ trains brought about the demise of York's shunting yards, built originally built to re-marshall the large volumes of freight using the East Coast Mainline. Recorded between 1959 and 1968 this video reflectes the decline of the steam locomotive and the emergence of diesel traction.

Darlington works built and repaired locomotives from 1863 to 1966, from small tanks to large pacifics. Most locos featured in this video were built or repaired in North Road Works and run in from Darlington shed before returning home.

After looking at A1's, A3's, A4's, V2's and B1's etc. on shed and in the works yard, we ride on the Richmond and Catterick Camp branches then watch steam in action as we move across country to Billingham.

In addition, routes had to be found for north/south expresses, local branch trains and stopping trains.

The railway map of Birmingham and the west Midlands was extremely complicated with the Midland, London North Western and Great Western railways competing for traffic. This video looks at the area's disappearing rail network of the 1960s, from the Lickey Incline in the south to the Trent Valley line in the north and from Hatton in the east to Oxley in the west. The main line diesel had not invaded these areas in 1963, so ex-LMS and GWR hard at work handling the wide variety of trains for which they had been designed, from long distance freights to branchline pickup goods.
