C5P-1040 Channel 5 Productions DVD Remembering the Beechy

Remembering the Beechy
The last train on the Colac to Beech Forest and Crowes line ran on the 30th of June 1962.
In this DVD, we go back to the twilight years of train operations when Garratt locomotives G 41, and later G42 were in charge of almost all trains.
Thanks to film shot mainly by the Late Keith Atkinson and digitally restored by Channel 5 Productions, the weekly goods comes alive once again.
Trains are seen between Colac and Weeaproina including shunting and running around the balloon loop at Beech Forest.
There were many specials organised in the last years of the line including the Kanyana Festival in 1959, `The Dinmont Dasher' and a scout Jamboree special.
