Marsden Rail Volume 30 – Sheffield to North Derbyshire

The programme starts at Sheffield, with film taken at the now-closed Victoria Station between 1932 and 1979 showing a wide variety of steam traction, ranging from Great Central Railway and Great Northern Railway designs through to British Railways Britannia Pacifics. The unique 1500dc-electric system that linked Sheffield to Manchester via the Woodhead Route is also featured, with the BR-built electric locomotives shown at various locations on the tortuous line, which closed in 1981. Another electrically-powered transport system could also be found in Sheffield in the 1950s, in the form of the citys original tram system and a film made in 1958 from Beauchief to the city centre is an interesting reminder of the period.
