Steam to Music

This is a collection of films that show life in the days of steam in many countries. The world of the railway steam locomotive is dramatically portrayed, without live sound, by creative use of music and effects.

The films cover the period from the late 1960's when steam finished in many European countries, to the 1990's before the end of steam in developing countries.
