Haltwhistle to Alston in 1976
This branch is a branch that survived the closures of the Beeching years but succumbed in the following decade. The film here was shot in 1976, its final year of operation.
Today part of the trackbed is used by the South Tyndale Railway, but if the whole branch had survived only a few more years it might still be open today.
