This series brings to the screen the railway scene around London at a time of great change. Filmed in the early nineties when the red, white and blue colours of Network SouthEast predominated, the railway is captured prior to privatisation as seen through the driver's cab window. Each journey is self contained and includes an informative commentary on the locations being passed. Stations, junctions and control points included.

This journey starts at Reading and follows Brunel's famous Great Western route into the capital, through Sonning Cutting, Twyford and Maidenhead. Change at Slough to depart from the bay platform for Paddington. Onwards through Southall through West Ealing junction etc. and to our final destination of the magnificent Paddington Station in the days before the Heathrow electrification.

This is a series of cab rides filmed in the early 1990s prior to privatisation when the red, white and blue colours of Network SouthEast predominated. This second programme features the Aylesbury to Marylebone line before its total modernisation. We head for London on the Metropolitan/Great Central Joint line via Stoke Mandeville, Wendover and Great Missenden. The appearance of a centre siding for the reversal of Metropolitan line EMUs and the appearance of the conductor rails confirms we are now running on London Underground metals, with the Underground’s own signalling.

Onwards through Chalfont & Latimer, Chorley Wood and Rickmansworth, through Moor Park, Northwood Hills and North Harrow we proceed towards the capital, entering Marylebone after a brief halt outside St John’s Wood Tunnel.
