This programme looks in depth at the former Cheshire Lines Railway between Manchester, Stockport, Altrincham, Northwich and Chester. After an introduction the programme is divided into three watchable segments each accompanied with detailed commentary and archive film and photographs.
Cheshire Lines for Cheshire People A celebration of the whole line from Manchester to Chester and the attractions along the way. We look at rolling stock through the years and finally examine the work of the newly created Mid Cheshire Community Rail Partnership that is attracting travellers back to the railway. Cheshire Lines Freight, A look at freight through the years, not surprisingly centred mainly on Northwich.
Features recent developments. Cheshire Lines Specials, By way of a ‘bonus track’, a look at some of the various special trains and diversions that have visited the Cheshire Lines since 1960, culminating in extended coverage of the May 2004 Steam Shuttles between Chester and Altrincham. The accent here is on lineside action and steam. A handy DVD menu allows the viewer to navigate each chapter or watch the programme in its entirety.
