    Steam Railway has again teamed up with Unseen Steam - the online and DVD home of rare and captivating railway footage - to present a half-hour, action-packed programme, FREE with SR466

    We’ve selected an eclectic mix of sequences from 1967; steam’s last full year on British Rail.

    Highlights of the all-colour material include melancholy footage from the very last day of Southern steam on July 9 and, in the same month, the last of the region’s suburban steam-hauled passenger services traversing the Thames.

    The year was also renowned for its eclectic mix of railtours, which is epitomised by the double-headed brake van tour of the severely graded Cromford & High Peak, juxtaposed with preserved Garter blue ‘A4’ No. 4498 Sir Nigel Gresley romping along the East Coast Main Line at Little Bytham.

    You’ll also see double-headed Bulleid 4-6-2s; banking over Shap; ‘9F’ No. 92203 (‘Black Prince’) at Shotton steelworks immediately before preservation; and Britain’s last working pre-Grouping engines on coal duty in the North East.

    A particular favourite reel is taken from the footplate of ‘Jubilee’ No. 45593 Kolhapur on railtour duty over the Settle & Carlisle line - charging through Garsdale. The same engine is then seen again moving gingerly on Carlisle Kingmoor shed, with a small child leaning from the driver’s cab window!

    We hope that you enjoy your free, exclusive gift.
