Fifties Underground - Aspects of Working


Fifties Underground - Aspects of Working on the London Underground 

Length = 45 Minutes
Format = DVD5
Copyright = 2005 Beulah - Transport for London

The post war London Underground had changed little. A few postponed extensions were opened. Whilst London Transport planners battled with the Government for new trains signalling and the automated Victoria Line, life underground continued unchanged. The training and information films on this DVD reflect these times.

  • SAFETY ON THE TRACK (1951) is primarily designed for track workers. Its is a straight forward film detailing how to work on the track. Then the film moves into Lillie Bridge depot where steam rules supreme. The final incident livens up the film.
  • POWER SIGNAL LINEMAN (1953) demonstrates the work of this important member of the Underground team. Centred on West Ruislip our lineman carries out maintenance and repairs to signals and points.
  • SCHOOL FOR SERVICE (1953) released as London Transport Cine gazette no 11, this film demonstrates the work of the Railway Training Centre at Lambeth North ( replaced in 1962 by a purpose built centre at White City ). Platform staff, booking clerks, signalmen , drivers and guards all passed through the training centre.
  • UNDER NIGHT STREETS (1958) After British Transport Films abandoned the idea of one film to tell how London Transport keeps London moving ( Operating London, published on YB37 All That Mighty Heart) three films eventually appeared - Overhaul (YB30 The London Bus), All That Mighty Heart (YB37) and Under Night Streets. This film tells of the work of the fluffers who cleaned the tunnels each night and of an emergency track gang called out to replace a broken rail.
