The Romance Of Steam: Wash Up and Brush Up – British Rail Steam Train Maintenance in the 1950’s


A viewers comment:

A great film about working Britain besides the lack of Health and Safety a golden if mucky age for Britains working people, how much would life expectancy have been increased if masks had been provided, I started work in the coal fired power stations in the 60’s and we had all the safety gear by then. The film demonstrates how labour intensive these wonderful steam locos but I wonder if before it all became about greedy profit if giving the people of Britain Jobs and so some pride was seen to be more important. Thanks for the share.

Enjoyed this
