Last Train from Monmouth to Ross 1959

3 mins United Kingdom

The Monmouth to Ross on Wye railway line opened in 1873 but was axed before Dr Beeching began cutting services. The final train on this line ran in January 1959 and an ATV Midland Montage camera was on hand to capture events as the final special service threads its way through a snowy Wye Valley.

The Media Archive for Central England is the public screen archive for the East and West Midlands. An independent charity and company based at the University of Lincoln, MACE acquires, catalogues, preserves and makes widely available moving image materials that inform our understanding of the diverse cultures and histories of communities between the Lincolnshire coast and the Welsh border.
