Hertfordshire was once served by a fascinating and varied collection of railways. The main lines to London ran alongside a network of sleepy and little used branches. Most of the branch lines have long gone, but the main lines survive. This, the first of 3 Volumes, explores the areas network of lines from the steam era to the present day.


In Volume One Presenter Tony Furse takes us on a journey around Hertfordshire using an extensive collection of archive material.


  • St Albans looking at the station, signal box and steam shed using archive material from steam days, through the diesel era to the electric age.

  • The Midland Main Line with a variety of steam workings at Napsbury in 1959.

  • The Branch Lines of St Albans and the railway from St Albans to Watford Junction. We explore the stations along the route in the 1960s through to the last years of diesel services.

  • Watford Junction and the steam era with film from the early 1960s on the main line and at the steam shed.

  • Electrified Branch Lines exploring the branches to Croxley Green and Rickmansworth Church Street. Steam and Diesel special trains are featured along with electric services in the 1970s.

  • Gone but not Forgotten and the long closed branch from St Albans to Hatfield. We explore the line using archive from the 1930s to the late 1960s, including the last freight trains. We also look at recent developments at Smallford and Nast Hyde Halt.
