Oh dear - quote from the editor of 'Steam Railway' amongst the other, um, standard BBC railway programme stuff.

'Millions of people travel on preserved railways every weekend'.





I wish.

Factoid error in the program.

"The M1 was Britain's first motorway in 1959"

The real claim to fame is the M6 around Preston in 1958............ :locomotive:

Been on before and will be on again for those that missed it.

One thing that puzzled me is they talk about mainline diesels but yet nowhere do the they mention the LMS Twins which were built before the BR standards.
