Holidays with Train Driving Lessons 1979

3 mins United Kingdom

An unusual choice of holiday, but for a rail enthusiast it fulfils a lifetime ambition, as North Norfolk Railway offer those with a fascination for steam locomotives a week-long experience to work on one of their trains, with the students expected to get their hands mucky learning the basics of firing and driving. Anglia Television report on a package holiday with a difference.

The East Anglian Film Archive, the first and largest Regional Film Archive in England, was established in 1976. Since 1984, EAFA has been owned and operated by the University of East Anglia, Norwich (UEA), to support research and work to preserve our moving image heritage. More than 250 hours are freely available online as examples of the wide range of film which attracts interest the world over.
