Saturday film club: Fast train to Sheffield

Blue diesels in the 1970s. ELO soundtrack, what more could you want?

Seriously though, it's a pertinent reminder of just how much the railway world has changed in a few years. A lot of this stuff was really modern when it was filmed, although not the forest of semaphore signals. The APT-E is though!

(Hat tip to Ben Jones for spotting this)
