London Terminus 1944

 This British education film was posted in subchat today.  It is very interesting and you will enjoy to see various forms of London transport in 1944.  You will not see trams or the underground, but steam and electric suburban and long distance services.  I got the "feel" of Grand Central Station in Manhattan viewing this short.  You will see an interesting utility tunnel used for transporting luggage and other freight by some sort of carts that appear to be battery driven.  The film is quite impressive even though it did not show how London transport services were disrupted by bombardment. Interesting interlocking pictures as well and men at work performing maintenance functions.
