Video technology came too late to record the golden years of Britain's railways during the steam era, but thanks to a handful of amateur cameramen armed with 8mm cine cameras, many images of the "Iron Horse" have been saved for posterity. This series is a collection of those shots and Part V covers the London area, the Isle of Wight and Scotland. Until the mid 1960's the Isle of Wight still depended on small Victorian 0-4-4 tank engines of the "O2" class to operate its island network. Our cameramen were on hand to record some of these locomotives. Back on the mainland we travel via Southampton and Brighton to the London area where steam engines are seen at several of the main line terminus stations as well as in the suburbs. A brief look at Bletchley is followed by a comprehensive journey around Scotland before line closures and dieselisation were to change the country's railway scene for ever. All the shots, taken in the 1950's and 1960's, are totally original and are in full colour with sound track and commentary.
