Let's Go To Birmingham

It is a while since I traveled by rail in England. I traveled along this line from London to Oxford. At least I think it is the same line. This is a much more interesting view, from the front of a train many years ago. It is definitely worth the ride and the site has other interesting movies, like those of young women dancing on the beach. Well that’s the Brits for you. Have to love them.

From the British Film Institute.

(P.S. You’d never guess that the Pullman was blue.)
