Romney Hythe and Dymchurch Railway
What a treat for all steam railway enthusiasts. A beautifully photographed video, entirely devoted to the legendary R H & D Railway. The smallest public service in the world, designed by Henry Greenly in 1926. It has become not only a firm favourite with all devotees of steam but a source of great enjoyment to many holidaymakers visiting the Kent coast.
Can you imagine a more magnificent sight than the 15 gauge engines steaming along the Kent coast across Romney Marsh to Dymchurch with a top speed of 25 miles per hour and able to carry 200 passengers. The railway enjoyed a Royal visit by the Queen in 1957 and among other famous visitors were Laurel and Hardy in 1947. A truly wonderful film, which will surely become a collectors item in the future.
150th Anniversary of Steam
Tha anniversary of steam traces the history of the Stockton - Darlington Steam Railway, and at it's anniversary, hundres of engines gathered on site to show that steam engines are not dead.
