Barrow Road, Pilning, Clifton Bridge, Railways Around Bristol B&R Vol 84 DVD
A film of the railways around Bristol from local cameraman Terry
Nicholls who worked for British Railways and knew the best spots to see
steam at work around the city. First we see Bedminster and Clifton
Bridge with the Docks at Wapping Wharf using steam. Return to Temple
Meads with a visit to Bath Road and the line to Bath via East Depot.
Then the Midland route north to Wickwar and Mangotsfield after a visit
to Barrow Road shed. Finally the South Wales line to Pilning via
Stapleton Road filmed from 1964; many LMS and GWR types are included,
Castles and Jubilees, even examples of the SR and LNER. Some early
diesels are also seen like the Blue Pullman and a couple of Hymeks but
predominately steam at its best. 60 minutes.
