Following the nationalisation of transport in 1948, the British Transport Commission set up its own in-house film production unit. Launched on 1 May 1949, and led for 25 years by Edgar Anstey - a founding father of the British documentary movement - it became one of the largest industrial film units in Britain.

The third volume in this series of 6-disc box sets contains such classics as The Finishing Line, Inter-City 125, Just Like the Rest of Us, as well as rare gems like Centenary Express and Give Your Car a Holiday.
