The film production unit of the former London Midland & Scottish Railway was created as a result of the hugely successful North American Tour of the 'Royal Scot' train. It produced both travel and publicity films showing aspects of railway operations, then screened them on tour to audiences large and small in Town Hall’s and Village Hall’s throughout the country.
Introduced by Rob Foxon, this special screening of genuine LMS promotional films recalls the heyday of the pre-war touring LMS Film Unit.
