Trains of the day

Rare footage of the Liverpool Overhead Railway (closed 1957). Eerie and sad.

For more on this now vanished line, including a route diagram, see this post at Scott's "Merseytart" blog.

The appropriately 1950s music used to be the signature tune of "Children's Favourites" on the Light Programme every Saturday morning.

The music is called "Puffin' Billy" and was written by Edward White. It was used as the signature tune to "Children's Favourites" on the BBC Light Programme from 1952 to 1966.
