A Day in the Life of a Terrier - Eccentric Terrier Tank Engines (DVD)
They are the great survivors. Stroudley immortal A1Xs were still hard at work in the 1960s, in spite of being obsolete by the dawn of the 20th century. Kicked off the London commuter trains, they found sanctuary in half-forgotten corners of the Southern network places like Newhaven Docks, the Isle of Wight and the Hayling Island Branch. And they're still useful today. This documentary follows the love-hate relationship between a footplate crew and their Terrier during a days driver training. The programme features wonderful archive footage from the 50s and 60s and several other members of the class also star in this unique tribute to one of the most adorable yet eccentric engines ever built.
