Description

This is the original release from 2010, available again exclusively from Videoscene. 


This compilation of newsreel reports from the British Movietone News archive is a companion release to the best selling SFE DVD release British Steam Railway Disasters - 1913 to 1967 that previously collected together the news reports of the other two main newsreel companies, Reuters and British Pathé.

British Train Disasters is a comprehensive round up of no less than 76 disasters, mostly from the era of steam locomotion. Railway accidents happen for a variety of reasons from passing red signals, driver error, poor visibility, infrastructure and equipment failures, road vehicle collisions or sabotage.
