British Rail tries to get to grips with this new-fangled concept of conservation, but doesn't really understand what it's all about. Starts off OK with stuff about plants and things in disused railways, but loses the plot fairly quickly as it becomes a tour of ugly 1970s concrete railway architecture. 17 minute film taken from

AH, Bedford HA's, been upside down in one of those, the fuel tank was a Castrol GTX can on the passengers lap so crawling out of the window with wet jeans was a bit anxious, I think we paid £15 for it and the scrapper bought it for a tenner :)
