March 2016 will see the 50th anniversary of the closure of quite possibly the most celebrated of all our lines closed in the 1960s. This DVD examines the final years of the railway and what has happened to the line and its stations during the past 50 years.

The programme has unseen archive footage of the line and is produced in association with the Somerset & Dorset Railway Trust based at Washford on the West Somerset Railway. An added bonus of an archive film along the branch to Highbridge and never-before-seen out-takes from the BAC film unit film with original sound track.

The 15 Guinea Special of 11th August 1968
The full story of the last steam train operated by British Rail in August 1968. Never before seen film of the 15 Guinea Special as it prepares to leave Liverpool Lime street on its epic 315-mile journey to Carlisle and return. Superb shots of Nos. 45110, 70013 Oliver Cromwell, 44781 and 44871 as they take this historic train through the north west. We see film as it departs from Liverpool Lime Street with the crew and press present on this historic occasion. On arrival at Manchester Victoria a loco change took place which saw BR’s last Pacific, No. 70013 Oliver Cromwell take over the service for the passage to Carlisle. Footage on and off the train as passengers are served lunch as the train nears Blackburn for its first water stop. As the train nears Hellifield, we see film of it as it stops and prepares to embark on the scenic Settle-Carlisle route. Cameras on and off the train film as the train crosses over Ribblehead viaduct and heads towards the summit of the line at Ais Gill where a stop saw crowds of well-wishers scramble to take pictures. On arrival at Carlisle the two Black Fives, 44871 and 44781 are coupled up to return the train back to Manchester. The two-week build-up to the end is covered with scenes of the final week of steam and specials, six of which operated on one day – the 4th August 1968. We see film of the final locomotives on BR’s register as they perform their last duties. Several would find their way to preservation.
