Metroland

Star of TV


In the second week in July we hope to be filmed for a television programme by John Betjeman on BBC-2 titled Metroland. It is hoped to repaint L44 in its Metropolitan livery on one side only and have the locomotive standing on the Brill platform for this special occasion. Would you like a colour TV for Xmas?


Notes:
The text in this Quainton Railway Society publication was written in 1972 and so does not reflect events in the 40+ years since publication. The text and photographs are repeated verbatim from the original publication, with only a few minor grammar changes but some clarifying notes are added if deemed necessary. The photos from the original publication are provided as scans in this internet version of this long out of print publication.
