Synopsis

As 1970 was European Conservation Year, this issue of the series is devoted to examples of what railways in Britain are doing to help conserve and improve the environment. The conversion of former railway property, including the Round House, is shown, yielding Nature Trails for children and training runs for race horses. Railway architecture, old and new, makes its contribution, as does contemporary design.
