DVD Along the Old Lines • [App 95 mins] • BARGAIN PRICE!
This DVD contains all three of the ‘films’ the boss shot as a callow youth , mainly in the 1960s, and previously available as individual videos. We aren’t going to say anything of his skills, but he had a decent 8mm cine-camera and, more importantly, used a tripod (most of the time). The first film is on Southern Region steam, at Waterloo, Woking, Guildford, the Isle of Wight and the Horsham - Guildford line. The second is of a journey from Victoria to the Mediterranean at Le Grau du Roi, with steam most of the way from Calais to Clermont-Ferrand, whilst the last film visits France again, mainly Paris - including a trip from Paris-Bastille, but also includes a Bagnall operated NG line owned by a Mr. Maginot, the last run of a genuine Dutch steam tram on a steam tram line (Groningen-Leek), plus a glimpse of Danish steam and Copenhagen trams. No sound - put on your favourite 60s record - Francoise Hardy perhaps?
