Film Description

Central News reporter Malcolm Munro reports from the Great Central Railway at Loughborough where a group of rail enthusiasts have restored a 1937 Royal Mail carriage which now runs from Loughborough to Rothley carrying mail and uses special postbag catching equipment.

Interviews with Mike Sheppard, rail manager and guard of the train and Reg Rand, Leicester's assistant head postmaster, regarding the service the train provides. We see the restored mail coach with details of the postbag catching system. Views of steam hauled train leaving Loughborough and tracking shots from carriage. Plus trims (1 min 46 seconds).

Duration:  2 minutes 17 seconds 
/ Sound
Ratio: 4:3
Sorry, there are no subtitles available for the hard of hearing at present

Please Note:

Download to Own titles are only available as MPEG4 files. If you wish to have a DVD of this title, the material would need to be encoded and authored in our technical suite which is £72 inc VAT. Please email for more information.

We will be introducing a new online version of our agreement very soon so that customers will no longer need to sign an agreement.
