This lovely DVD is part of the ever-reliable series, "British Steam Railways", which were - mostly - originally produced in the Noughties. The series aimed to present a "unique opportunity, to stroll through the hall of fame of Britain's steam locomotives". From unseen footage shot by enthusiasts, to rare archive documentaries, each DVD includes films, clips, and also stills, about the workers and machines of the Age of Steam.
ISLE of WIGHT ENGINES :-
Between 1923 and 1949, Isle of Wight railways gradually increased their stock of ex-London & South Western Railway, Adams O2 Tank Engines. In 1962, a film crew from "The Railway Roundabout" series, visited the island to see these well-proportioned 0-4-4 tank engines at work.
Railways on the Isle formed a unique - not to mention, contrasting - system : the trains were flooded by tourists in the Summer, but were unusually quiet during the Winter months. However, marshalled, as they were by the stalwart Adams O2 Tank Engines, this distinctive network ran a very efficient and popular, steam service.
The DVD is in VG+ condition.
