Memories of the Barnstaple - Ilfracombe Line DVD

Memories of the Barnstaple - Ilfracombe Line DVD

A fascinating DVD into the history of the Lynton & Barnstaple Railway's nearest neighbour in North Devon, the Ilfracombe Line.

From its early days, including footage of an early journey on the line c.1898, through to its hey day as part of the route of the Atlantic Coast Express, and on into its final years and eventual closure. The DVD includes a brief history of the line through its lifetime to closure in the 1970s. Together with Then and Now scenes, plus the reminiscences of former local railwaymen whose memories bear witness to the challenging nature of the line, this programme pays tribute to one of the Southern's most spectacular lines in the west country.

Film length 1 hour 30 mins. Format DVD-R.
