Early days at Peak Rail – The John Hilton Peak Rail Archives – 1/16

A short photographic montage of the early days at Peak Rail.

Background to photos: We have kindly been donated some photos and video footage by Mr John Hilton. In total there was 46 minutes of footage. So we’ve edited the footage into 15 films, which we are going to release over the coming weeks.

When we have released all 15 excerpts we will publish the final unedited video as produced and supplied by John.

We’d love to receive more old footage and/or photos of days and events gone by at Peak Rail that we can then share by adding it to our YouTube Channel. This we hope will help to preserve history and help us all remember days gone by.

We’re on the lookout for any old footage or photos we can add to our YouTube video channel and we’ll also publish here on our website.

Contact us if you’ve got anything hidden in the attic you can share with us and would like to preserve.
