Ages of Steam - 5 DVD Set

Take a journey through the five ages of steam trains in Britain!

THE GOLDEN AGE — from the early works of the Victorian engineers to the first decade of the 20th century, when locomotive size would double and the railways would reach their zenith. THE JAZZ AGE — covers the locomotives of the 1920s, when the railways of Britain formed four large companies — the “Big 4”. THE STREAMLINE AGE — examines the impact of the financial crisis of the 1930s on Britain’s railways and the urgent need for fleet renewal. THE AUSTERITY AGE — we look at the companies which chased simpler and cheaper designs, as well as the most complicated and expensive steam locomotives produced by Oliver Bulleid. THE STANDARD AGE — lack of investment in electric or diesel technology in the nationalised railway system meant steam continued with the Standard locomotives that soon were worn out and run down.
