Alan Pegler OBE ~ A Farewll Tribute • DVD • 27 mins (Last Copies)

£9.98

A warm appreciation of the life of Alan Pegler and his considerable contribution to British railway preservation.

Whilst his ultimately ruinous time preserving ‘Flying Scotsman’ is covered, this film tends to focus on his work with the Ffestiniog Railway, which he effectively saved from the scrapman.

The enjoyment of this film is increased by a lot of rare archive material, including the two Ivatt Atlantics at work on one of the specials Alan had organised, as well as much of the pre-preservation Ffestiniog.
