Market Weighton, East Yorkshire is a collection of memories in an area bounded by York, Bridlington, Driffield and Beverley. The crossing point of two railway lines, the Selby to Driffield and the York to Hull, the main freight from Market Weighton was agricultural, with some scrap metal products.

Although all York's platforms were still very busy, Dr. Beeching's cuts had begun to bite, as we watch the closure of the lines, lifting of the tracks and demolition of the stations. However the coast line to Bridlington was and is still very busy and we also look at Beverley Station's famed gardens and watch traffic at North Bar.

The local pick-up goods train is seen in its heyday, with the closure notices and the last day's wreath bringing the programme to a close.

Locos seen include Class 5s, Jubilees, K1s, Ivatt 2-6-0s, Class 25s, 40s and 47s, together with various classes of diesel multiple units.

Filmed and recorded between 1960 and 1968.
