On telly this evening on BBC Four at 22:00 GMT - "two part series telling the remarkable story of a band of visionaries who rescued some of the little narrow gauge railways that once served Britain's industries"


Here's hoping there's some hardcore "ship-on-dock-on-train" action!

Having missed Part 1 of this two-part series last week I got to see tonight's edition. Compared to the rubbish put ot on RTÉ recently in '21st Century Railway' this show was excellent. It covered the end of steam on BR and the start of the preservation movement on standard gauge branch lines. Concentrating on the Severn Valley Railway and the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway, the programme contained lots of great archival footage and was well put together and presented.
