In 1960 there were seven different rail routes approaching the City of Kingston-upon-Hull. There were also two circular routes within the City from the west side marshalling yards to the docks on the east side. The River Hull has the Old Port at its mouth and this was a densely populated area, so the various railway companies had to swing north and build their routes through the outskirts of the city.

Local cameramen filming in the late 1950s and early 1960s captured many of the steam workings in around the city together with recently introduced diesel multiple units working alongside steam services at Withernsea. Freight traffic was still almost all steam hauled and many of the excursions to Bridlington had steam power. Hull's other forms of transport are shown with trolley buses, motor buses and the Humber paddle-ferries.

Also on view are trawlers being built, ships being unloaded and scenes of city life in the 1960s.

Filmed and recorded between 1957 and 1967.
