Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

In many aspects of railway working, modern methods and structures are making for quicker results. Shows how sending loads of coal by the Merry-go-round trains is regularising the supply to the power stations, and how the Motorail terminal at Olympia speeds the holidaymaker comfortably on his way with his car. Also demonstrates British Rail’s hovercraft service between Southampton and Cowes in the Isle of Wight.
