a marvellously sardonic look at the new all-electric Inter City rail concept which was forged out of the old steam driven system which had been in place for a 100 years. British Rail had entered it's Corporate era, all stock was painted in the new Rail Blue and grey livery.
this BTF film follows a driver taking his train north from Euston station - he's a laugh a minute guy....
please note; this is a heavy-duty rail related film and is aimed more at the cognoscenti and those so interested, if rail material is not to your liking you are strongly urged to go no further, for everyone else, enjoy this wry look at Modern Rail Travel. It is quite long but well worth the time investment should you have little else to do and enjoy taking a sideways look at things.
credit goes to the BTF (British Transport Films) for allowing these films into the Public Domain.
