BBC Archive


I just had to share this wonderful link!



It's a wonderful selection of films! And it features two episodes of one of my favourite television series - Miles Kington's Steam Days. I remember watching these programs over and over again on video - it's a wonder I didn't wear the tape out! One of the episodes was about 46229 Duchess of Hamilton which may go somewhere to explaining my affection for this locomotive. The series was beautifully shot and Miles Kington was a railway enthusiast and this comes through in the programs.

Follow this link to see Miles Kington's wonderfully atmospheric journey from Fort William across the western Highlands via Glenfinnan to Mallaig.

It's superb!
