In 1953, the BBC made a film of the rail journey from London to Brighton.  This has since become a famous piece of footage.  But it remains an entertaining watch…

Even more fascinating is this film, which compares the original 1953 film with equivalent footage shot in 1983 and 2013.  It is so interesting to see the various developments over the years….

Hub and I love train travel – even in the modern era, it is such a civilised way to journey.  What about you? 🙂
