About this title

W.A. "Cam" Camwell was one of the most active railway enthusiasts during the 1950s & 60s, the period during which British Rail ways moved from steam to diesel and electric traction and many railway lines and branches passed into history. His membership of the Stephenson Locomotive Society led him to organise many tours of threatened or interesting railway lines and he recorded as much of the network as possible both in photographs and on 16mm cine film. The latter forms the basis of this series as Cam filmed many remote and obscure lines, as well as interesting developments, on the main lines.

Volume 8

'Cam' goes to York and Doncaster where B16s are to be seen and steam helps electrics over the Woodhead route. NER lines to Pilmoor, Gilling, Malton and Battersby and the sea-front line north of Whitby with NER pacific tanks. 9Fs on the Consett ore trains then Bishop Auckland, and a glimpse of NER 4-4-0 no. E2372. Gourock and Ardrossen then through Newton Stewart. In Fife we go to Markinch and Forfar. Around Crieff we see Pickersgill 4-4-0s. Muir of Ord and The Mound, taking the train to Dornoch behind a Highland 0-4-4 tank, - then to Thurso and west to The Kyle and down to Mallaig, Aviemore and Forres - and there's more!
