40 years old – I’ve just re-watched my favourite ever railway programme

I’ve been a railway enthusiast ever since my Grandad on my Mother’s side took me to watch trains in Kirkby-In-Ashfield Nottinghamshire as a toddler. Unsurprisingly, I watch most railway programmes that come on the TV but every now and again I have to go back and watch my favourite one from the original 1980 BBC series of Great Railway Journeys. It’s called Coast to Coast and is in my view a masterpiece with my all time TV presenter Ludovic Kennedy at the helm throughout the 1 hour programme.

I’ve blogged about it before and here’s a link back to that previous posting

So why raise it again now? Well to celebrate the episode’s 40th birthday and why not. If you would like to watch it here’ a link:-
