This series of programmes will take us to classic stations, depots and other railway locations around Britain, where the locomotives, liveries and rolling stock are from an era that is now long gone.

Loco-hauled passenger and freight trains are in abundance, but we will see shunters and multiple units as well.

Volume 3 looks at three famous railway locations:

Chapter 1:
Stockport station 1986-1991.

Although the main route from Crewe to Manchester was electrified as long ago as 1960, Stockport has witnessed a great variety of traction over the years.

Hauled passenger trains are in the hands of Class 31s, 47s and even a Class 45, plus the AC electric fleet, while the freight turns produce 25s, 37s and 47s - oh and an 08 shunter!

On the unit front, there is an appearance by a Royal Mail liveried Derby DMU set and the good old Class 304 EMUs are still in service.

Chapter 2:
Comprises a visit to Eastfield diesel depot and Springburn Works in 1991.

Features Class 08, 20, 26, 27, 37, 47 and 90 locomotives.

Chapter 3:
To Reading in the years 1987 and 1988, when Network South East ruled the roost on the local and outlying commuter services.

Cross country services were mostly, but not always, in the hands of 47s, and the freights produce 33s, 37s, 56s, 59s and even 47901.

Full captions with minimal commentary.
