This review is from: The British Transport Films Collection Volume 1 - On and Off the Rails [DVD] (DVD)
This dvd set is worth it for the scenes of snow being cast aside by the steam operated snow ploughs alone! All the films are not only very well produced (as was always the case with BTF productions) but also show an historical view of a railway system now long gone in terms of steam traction and all other aspects of operation. They also serve as great sociological documents indicating a society which again has changed out of all recognition (as well as the more obvious, little nauances such as the comment 'a bit like eating landlady's cake' come to mind).
If you are inetrested in railway, engineering or social history or just want to be inspired by large amounts of snow being thrown to the side of the track or enormous steam beam engines at work, you will not be disappointed with this set.
