Memories of the Lyme Regis Branch (DVD) £19.95

Ian Heys

Format:
PAL
Duration:
50 minutes

First Pasture Price:  £19.95         

Status: In Stock

The railway from Axminster to Lyme Regis with its tight curves, steep gradients and beautiful scenery was probably the Southern Railways most memorable branch line.  To add to the line's charm the branch also played host to the elegant Adams Radial Tanks for over 40 years.  The line served the local people as well as holiday makers for just over 62 years and although closed in 1965 its memory remains strong amongst those whose life was touched by the Lyme Billy.

Our unique collection of cine film, over twenty minutes, starts with scenes at Lyme Regis in 1943.  Vic Mitchell on a family holiday provides us with cine film of the station during its last years in Southern Railways hands.  From the collection of Stan Peerless we have a marvellous piece of colour cine film which shows the entire length of the branch in detail with the Ivatt 2MT tanks in charge.  We also have scenes of the Radial Tanks in their final days on the line before the story is concluded with footage of the DMUs working the route before closure.

To compliment the cine film we have a wealth of archive photographs with many then and now views of Axminster, Combpyne and Lyme Regis along with well known features such as Cannington Viaduct and Trill Woods.  Old railwaymen recall their days working the branch whilst others fondly remember what it was like to travel on the line.  The film is accompanied by full commentary.
