Railways On Film

3pm / Fri 11 November / Pier Building

Dir: various / UK / 1898 - 1970 / 1h 23mins

A major new collection of rare archive films charting the history of the UK's railways, bringing home the romance and heady freedoms offered by train travel as it expanded across the country in the early 20th century. Sourced from national and regional archives and newly digitised, Railways on Film is an immensely nostalgic and evocative collection of films which document not just the glories of the railway but also the changing social, political and economic climates of the 20th century.

Contains some flashing light sequences
