The popular branch line that once used to operate from Guildford southwards through Cranleigh to Christ’s Hospital, one of the features on our first DVD covers.
The first of our new DVDs features as its ‘lost lines’ section the much-mourned Liverpool Overhead Railway — or Docker’s Umbrella as it was popularly known — which was finally closed in 1956 and dismantled thereafter.

The National Network — indeed all of Britain’s railways — have an enviable safety record; indeed no passenger has been killed in a train accident on the National Network for almost a decade and the era of Clapham Junction, Hatfield and Potters Bar, to name but three significant accidents of the 1980s and 1990s, is now, thankfully, behind us.
