What a great nostalgic video, presented in an interseting way. A must for all interested in railways, both steam and diesel, and something to show the kids how railways used to be. It also illustrates how quickly accidents were dealt with, unlike our current kid glove society. Well worth the money!

This video does what it 'says on the tin' and is very good and enjoyable. However I have now done three reviews of this product. No matter how many I do further requests keep being requested. Why? If I went to a shop and brought it I wouldn't keep been pestered for reviews. It puts me off wanting to buy any more items from Amazon. Give me a break!
