Derby 175: Carriage Building in Derby — 10 Comments

    • Hello Rupert. Many thanks for your comment. Glad you liked the film.

  1. The joiner assembling the carriage door in the 1933 film is my mothers father Albert Edwin Godwin who would have been living in Village Street Derby at the time of the filming

    • Hello Alan. That’s amazing! We were hoping there would be people out there would would know some of the people in the film. Hope it was nice to see your grandfather again. It would be great if we could put more names to the people in the film. There must be people out there who know. They, just need to see the film.

  2. Wonderful – so well put together with a modern commentary to an old film showing how it used to be. Thankfully, quality work still goes on in many heritage railways.

  3. Thanks you for your kind words Michael. It’s always nice to take a look back to put today into perspective.

  4. I worked there from 1968 to 1977 and this film bought back many memories. Not much had changed except the more modern rolling stock. A very good film.

    • Glad you like the film. It would be great if we could get some names to go with the faces in the film. We have one so far as you can see from the messages above, which is great. 🙂

  5. What a brilliant revamp of an old film. Just sufficient sound effects to convey the mood and a commentary that shows what can be done using someone who actually knows what he is talking about and not just a presenter. I only came across the film from a link in the Derby Telegraph 175 years supplement – it deserves a wider audience.

    • Thanks for your kind words an support. Much appreciated. Feel free to share the link to the web page.
