Fifth of six programmes. Lines of Industry
It's been the glamour of the passenger lines that has attracted most rail buffs. But in the past few years interest has been growing in an older form of rail transport - industrial railways.
At their peak, there were thousands of miles of private industrial railways in Britain.
Many of them have now gone. forgotten and unrecorded. But enthusiasts have started collecting industrial locomotives and rolling stock. And, due to the far-sightedness of the photographer, Ivo Peters , there is archive film of many industrial lines, long since closed.

A series of 13 programmes presented by Colin Blakemore
The famous Professor Aitken could do long division in his head to 40 decimal places as fast as he could speak. As she plays the Brahms Concerto, violinist Nadja Salemo-Sonnenberg feels strong emotions, but her exquisite performance is based on months of intense mental work and precise analysis. Professor BIakemore asks, why does the brain have mechanisms that can perform such biologically useless activities?
The frontal lobes may have evolved to help us plan ahead, navigate and communicate - but now they give us the powers of higher thought: to build imaginary models in the mind, to move others with music, and even to conceive of the beginning of the universe.
A co-production with WNET New York
(Repeated next Sunday)
Last of eight programmes.
Editor of Blueprint magazine Deyan Sudjic examines Creek Vean in Cornwall. It is a house built in 1966 by Team 4, a group of young unknowns. Two of them are now Britain's best known architects, Richard Rogers and Norman Foster.
'Compared with what they went on to build afterwards, Creek Vean was tiny.
But size has little to do with the richness of architectural ideas.'
Starring Boris Karloff, Ellen Drew.
A Greek general, an American reporter, a British consul and his wife are among a group of people trapped on a Greek island during the war of 1912. Plague breaks out, but a peasant woman warns of the presence of a vorvolaka - a vampirish being that drains all joy from the living, and possesses the newly dead. Boris Karloff stars as the dour general in another vintage excursion into terror by master producer Val Lewton.
