Product description

Product Description

At its peak, the British railway network consisted of a massive 20,000 miles of track on which ran 23,000 locomotives pulling a total of 73,000 carriages and 1.4 million goods wagons. This huge transport network was managed and operated by 130 individual companies. Like the small capillaries at the end of the main arteries, Britain s Branch Lines were essential links to villages, small towns and many industrial sites such as collieries, factories and power stations.With the demise of heavy industry and development of cheap motor cars, many Branch Lines have closed.This DVD film is part of a nationwide tour of many of these lines, some long since closed, some still in limited operation. Lines featured in this box set include: Flixborough Leicester-Burton Bates Staithes Frodsham-Runcorn Hendon Jn Bishopbriggs Croxley Green Trawsfyndd Calverton Colliery Silverdale Colliery Methil Westfield Branch Killoch Colliery Tanhouse Burn Naze High Marnham Branch Silverwood Colliery Hays Chemicals St Helens Pontycymer Cheetham Hill Monk Bretton Wisbeach Anglesea Sidings Birch Coppice Haydock Glazebrook Northampton Bridge Street Hays Chemicals Sandbach Grain Thameshaven Chalmerston Fawley Ebbw Branch Hamworthy Bentinck Colliery Shelton Steel Works Manchester Airport Sizewell Power Station Branch Nuneaton Avoiding Line Lavant Branch Greaves Sidings Birkenhead Rugby Redland Baddesley Colliery Branch Meldon Quarry Stirling Sidings Hull Analby Curve Waterloo Branch Dee Marsh Branch Coventry Colliery Kings Lynn Docks Branch Bloxwich Branch Middlewich Eastgate Redmire Swannington Ravenscraig Maxwelltown Grangemouth Engine Shed Asfordby Newton-Le-Willows Colliery Frodsham Rossington & Frickley Colliery Padiham Power Station Bescot-Stourbridge Dover Western Docks Machen Quarry Castle Gresley Newton Longville Vic Berrys Scrapyard Long Marston Denton Corby Liverpool Alexander Docks Ribble Branch Deepdale Grassington Tondu Westerleigh Cadoxton Fifoots Power Station Huntly Ludgershall Morningside Ford, Bridgend Barry Docks Aberthaw Prologis Park Logistic Park (Coventry) Ebbw Victoria Sidings Cross Keys Cwm Heathfiled Tyherington Hendy Curve, Swansea Kingsbury Folly Lane Clipstone Colliery Southminster Power Station - Denby
