|DVD-R Video (also available at HALF PRICE as VHS Cassette). This final volume of the invaluable guide to the UK's entire railway network is better value than ever before! Every part of the country is thoroughly covered over all the 10 volumes giving a complete picture of rail operations in each region. Intercity, regional railways, and freight operations in each area are highlighted. Also included are references to private steam railway sites. A comprehensive script contrasts present day workings with a brief history of the development of the rail network in each area. Volume 10 covers the following approximate area:- • Mainlines ECML around Peterborough, including new liveried GNER trains. Marks Tey to Norwich. Secondary lines Peterborough to Ely, Ely to Bury St. Edmunds, The Sudbury branch, Kings Lynn to Foxton, The Harwich branch, Woodbridge to Lowestoft, Lowestoft to Norwich, The Sheringham line, Great Yarmouth line via Acle, The Skegness line. • Preserved lines North Norfolk Railway. • Freight flows Wisbech pet food train, Sand from Middleton Towers, oil to Harwich, Freightliner traffic around Felixstowe, Snailwell Scrap train, Freight traffic around Immingham, including iron ore, coal, oil, and steel, steel and gypsum on the Flixborough branch. • Notable Stations March, Downham Market, Bury St. Edmunds, Stowmarket, Oulton Broad North, Norwich, Worstead, Lincoln. • Loco Classes 47, 56, 58, 60, 86, 90, 91, 150, 153, 156, 158. This well balanced programme takes a look at the diverse railway operations of East Anglia, Lincolnshire and South Humberside. • This is an area rich in railway history with large sections of the network still controlled by semaphore signalling, and more than it's fair share of rural branch lines. Many of these are passenger-only but some such as Wisbech survive as remote outposts of the freight network. In South Humberside meanwhile the emphasis is very much on heavy trainload freight traffic, much of it to and from the port of Immingham. As a complete contrast, there is a visit to the North Norfolk Railway, keeping alive the traditions of a bygone era in the delightful countryside along the Norfolk coast.|
