Video Of The Month May 2015 - "Reshaphing Britains Railways - March 1963"

A great set of videos that really set the ball rolling for the Beeching era of railway rationalisation in Britain in 1963.
In New Zealand we had our Dr Beeching - a Mr Peter Gordon Minister of Railways who embarked on a similar exercise to modernise and reshape New Zealand Railways closing down many country branch lines and uneconomic services in the move from steam to diesel.
Even today some of the lessons alluded to in this classic set of videos are still relevant. Well worth a look and maybe something to ponder on for a while!
