    Not sure if this is the right place again and no doubt old hat to some but detail wise it may be of use for the era or those modeling DMU's, specially given the clarity of the film. Supposedly taken from a child's point of view, the locations jump about a bit (ok, a lot) and features a DMU that has a fuel tank to run across most of the country. Who needs Health and Safety. It's 1959, hats rule, diesel rocks and orange vests are out!

    Regards all, Dean :drool:

    I used to like sitting behind the Driver like that to see the view ahead... although a miserable g!t like the one in the film would most likely pull the blind down behind him!! :rolleyes: :mad:

    That was lovely! I remember similar train rides to this when I was a nipper in the 70s – looking out the front, watching the driver fiddle with his knobs. I was fascinated by drivers of everything then, even travelling by bus I'd sometimes miss my stop because my eyes were fixed on the driver! Oh, the good old days...
