In this second GC video, we look at Staveley GC engine shed and ride on an O4 Class loco and another O4 is filmed shunting the exchange sidings at Heath.
After looking at trains at Wilford Brickyard we join 4472 Flying Scotsman at Nottingham Victoria on 15th June 1963 and travel down the London Extension to Marylebone, pausing to look at passing traffic at Ruddingon, Leicester, Rugby and Woodford Halse.
After looking around Marylebone we commence our journey home behind Flying Scotsman.
Between 1959 and 1968, railway enthusiast and cine-cameraman, Michael Marsden, recorded views and sounds of the rapidly changing face of Britain's rail network.
For over twenty-five years after steam ended, he captivated audiences throughout the country with his unique film collection that captured steam's last decade and the full emergence of the diesel locomotive.
The blending of this film and that of other cameramen with true sounds of the era, plus an informative narrative, has resulted in the creation of this superb range of railway videos detailing the last decade of British mainline steam operations.
