19-minute film taken from

BFi/British Transport Films Volume 7: The Age of the Train 2-DVD set.

Probably an internal training PR film or maybe shown in schools, it's far too boring and tedious to show to a cinema audience. Which may explain why no entry on imdb, but it's a real recognised film and can be seen here if you really really like this sort of thing.

Set in Teeside and N&W Yorkshire

... which is where the first train line was built, after a meeting in a pub in Yarm

Some trains for the trainists in our flock - film is very keen on the new diesels and diesel-electrics ....

(all from the first 3 minutes or so, but I got bored. Loads more in rest of film)

... and only shows the puffers as old knackered relics sadly reduced to menial work instead of former glories
