Steam in the hills a talk by Simon Foote
A steam locomotive in action is in many people’s eyes a thing of great beauty and is now a source of much nostalgia. It is over 50 years since the majority of Britain’s steam railway locomotives were withdrawn from service and scrapped.
Using colour slides with stereo sound this presentation is an appreciation of the steam locomotive including some, which survived into the age of steam preservation. They are seen and heard working hard on some of the higher and more demanding parts of our surviving railway network.
