Today's rail freight scene is very different from that of 25 years ago.
Blocktrains are the mainstay of the current scene - a far cry from the vastamount of wagonload traffic carried by Speedlink and, more recently,Enterprise services.
But it's not only the traffic that has changed - so has the traction.
This - the first of two programmes - looks back on freight trains that no longer run and branch lines and terminals that no longer exist.
This first volume covers Scotland, Wales, Northern England, Yorkshire and Humberside.
Among the many nostalgic items to be featured in this 100-minute DVD are:
Hunterston-Ravenscraig iron ore
Chivas Regal whisky
Larbert-Oakleigh ICI tanks
