Gavin Morrison needs no introduction to most railfans, his evocative photographs of British steam during the glory days are justifiably well known and loved throughout the world.
However, few people realise that Gavin Morrison is also a talented film cameraman, and while out photographing steam he often turned his attention to producing a superb high quality film record as well. Much of the footage in this brand new series has never been viewed publicly before, and certainly not in this unique form.
The Gavin Morrison Collection is a highly original chronological series, spanning the years from 1962 to the early years of preservation after the end of main line steam in 1968. These superb programmes give a fresh and stunning new insight into the glorious years of steam, and will quickly grow to become one of the most important archive series ever produced.
This wonderful evocative collection moves onto the years between 1964 and 1966 and features some of the rapidly diminishing variety of steam that could still be found working then.
