It is well worth obtaining a copy of the full dvd ( vol. 6 in the series) as there is other footage in Walsall, Pelsall and Norton Junction. It is available from Amazon at very reasonable cost.

Great clips. Know it must be hard to source but really interesting to see any photos / videos of the line in action.
