Description

This is one of a large collection of films created by the Photographic Unit of the Chief Civil Engineer of the LNER in York, and his successors on British Railways. This film records the work of a gang of rail workers and a piling machine unloading cable ducks on the track near Tweedmouth on the East Coast Main Line, Morpeth to Berwick.

A gang of rail workers use a piling machine to unload cable ducks on the track near Tweedmouth.

[The films were inherited by the track renewals company Fastline in 1996, and when Fastline was sold to Jarvis in 1999 the films were sold on to Andrew Dow and Richard Hall who took over the running of Fastline Photographic Ltd in 2010.]
