Banbury to Birmingham Snow Hill in the 1960s

Lovely footage of steam locomotives hauling passenger and goods trains along this former GWR route.

Look too for some brief appearances by diesels, notably a Western and the Midland Pullman,

The final scenes at Snow Hill are particularly interesting and feature a steam locomotive shunting a DMU car.

It's rather like seeing an aristocrat polishing a peasant's boots after the Revolution.
