Journeys by British Rail DMUs plus Archive Steam Era Newsreels.

Two series of Devon and Cornwall branchline journeys were made by Westward Television, later Television South West, journalist John Doyle in 1975 and 1990, in support of these beautiful scenic lines which were under threat of closure. All were filmed in colour.

The branchlines shown are:

1975 Series:

  1. St Erth to St Ives
  2. Truro to Falmouth
  3. Liskeard to Looe
  4. Exeter to Barnstaple
  5. Exeter to Exmouth
1990 Series:
  1. Plymouth to Gunnislake
  2. Par to Newquay
  3. St Erth to St Ives
  4. Exeter to Barnstaple
  5. Exeter to Exmouth
The films were made in the era of British Rail first generation diesel multiple units (DMUs), and are presented here with bonus archive items from the last years of steam.

Happily, all the lines are still open and this DVD provides a guide both to general travellers and rail enthusiasts, with important archive film and interviews for historians.
