Vol 9 Cam in Colour
The Cam Camwell Collection


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 9

'Cam' reserved his use of expensive colour film for scenes which he deemed to be the mostinteresting . This programme includes an A3 on a 3-coach train in the mid 1950s, banking by a GW 'Heavy Freight' tank at Ledbury, 'Gordon Highlander' and the 'Jones Goods', K4 2-6-0 61995 at Crianlarich, the J72 tank at York in North Eastern green, GW classes at Whitland, Cardigan, Aberavon, Nantybwch and Risca, and 4-4-0s, 0-6-0s and 0-6-2Ts around Stamford. In Ireland the Tralee and Dingwall Railway, a horse-worked tram and main line locomotives in normal service. And a special tribute to the man himself, 'Cam' Camwell.
