from the vaults of the LMS, a short film on how the Railway Company was 'tuned-for-war...
every-time I watch one of these I wonder what it would have been like if the UK had stayed out of the looming conflict that was brewing in Europe, would it have been possible to do so, I don't know but I do know it was a terrific waste of men resources and treasure and it irrevocably changed the nature of our National Heritage for ever.
warning; this is a long rail related film some 15+minutes in length, it's in full colour black and white, if it doesn't capture you immediately you are well advised to hit that back button, for the cognoscente among us enjoy this slice of naive gung-ho nostalgia!
