5.0 out of 5 stars Have I Got The Same Edition?, 20 Dec 2008
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The British Transport Films Collection Volume 4 - Reshaping British Railways [DVD] (DVD)
The films included in this edition are, Work In Progress (1951), Wash & Brush Up (1953), A Place in the Team (1953), Service to Southend (1957), Diesel Train Ride (1959), Let's Go To Birmingham (1962), Reshaping British railways (1963), Forward to First Priciples (1966), Freight and a City (1966), Second Nature (1967), The New Tradition (1968), Plumb-Loco (1971), This Year by rail (1972) & Overture: One Two Five (1978)

Wash & Brush Up is a fascinating look at the maintenance required by a steam engine after 16 days of use, Service to Southend is a film on the electrification of the route, Reshaping BR is Beeching explaining his hatchet job on BR.

Personally I prefer the older films where you can see roads devoid of traffic and a more gentle pace of life. The colour films of the 60's & early 70's take me back to my childhood before the the BR diesels turned corporate blue.

Why do the drivers of the Blue Pullmans looks like ice cream van drivers?

5.0 out of 5 stars The wonderful nostalgic series continues., 6 Dec 2006
This review is from: The British Transport Films Collection Volume 4 - Reshaping British Railways [DVD] (DVD)
The wonderful nostalgic series continues. This isn't just for railway enthusiasts but for anyone interested in nostalgic British life. Picture quality is wonderful as usual and it's all been put together lovingly. The collection of films here is a more interesting mix than previous volumes.

5.0 out of 5 stars old gits film, 23 Aug 2013

This review is from: The British Transport Films Collection Volume 4 - Reshaping British Railways [DVD] (DVD)
If you are very very old like me and remember the old days of black and white films and TV then this is for you with steam train that had 14 carrages on speeding to sunny Devon or Scotland busses that went from A to B makes me think of what an old chap said to me years ago "All change and no improvment" as to where we are now? So these old British films are or must be collectors films well filmed and put together so if like me you want to go back to those days of Britian at work then buy it .

I'm accumilating quite a few of these sets now and, i love 'em. If you have an interest in 50's 60' or 70's transport, with a pretty heavy bias toward railway (i do) then they are a must, wonderful capsules of memorabillia.
