Beeching report 50 years on

On 27 March 1963, Reshaping Britain's Railways was published - otherwise known as the Beeching Report.  So by way of commemoration here are (Michael) Flanders and (Donald) Swann with 'Slow Train' which runs through some of the stations that were axed as a result of Beeching.  The BBC's economics correspondent, Stephanie Flanders, is the daughter of Michael Flanders.
