This restored and colourised video has been highlighted a good many times, but is worth the link. London in the later WW2 years. There’s a great segment taken at Waterloo from around the 12 minute mark, but plenty of bus and tram interest elsewhere. And despite the occasionally dodgy colourisation (a red Green Line bus), this gives some good ideas for the colours to use for a late Grouping or early BR layout.
All his YouTube site is interesting, mainly European (and none the worse for that), but these videos also caught my eye.
It strikes me that the early Dutch railways look more ‘British’ than a lot of European trains of that era.
And to finish, a little local colour….. (not sure, as ever, where the photos came from – sorry.)
East Croydon and perhaps a royal train.
A ‘BIL’ on the Reigate-Redhill shuttle. No 12 car trains to Reigate in those days!
Redhill in the 50’s or 60’s. Impressive signals!
