I offer this as a few minutes of carefree entertainment, in pre-lockdown days, from youtube.

All of the relevant credits are in the film's closing titles, so I won't waste your time by reproducing them here.

Simply enjoy, at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EG-NaWehAkU&ab_channel=robreed

William Huskisson MP (Member of Parliament) was the first person to be killed by a train while crossing the tracks, in 1830.  Many more have died in the same way since then.  Don't take a chance: stop, look, listen.

Didn't realise until the closing credits that it was filmed on the Pontypool and Blaenavon Railway.....even though I've been there, not all that long ago and maybe more than once.

As someone hailing from the home of the Flora Dance (and who had the once-in-a-lifetime honour of leading it many moons ago), I was a bit anxious when I saw this link but really enjoyed it. The music is from an ?Edwardian song inspired by the original tune.

No need to be anxious - it's just a bit of railway related fun!  Roll Eyes
