2 8mm original silent colour films made by amateur filmmaker John Burnie in the 1960s. One film is titled 'Railway Miscellany' and is a compilation of railway footage shot in Scotland and England. The other film is titled 'A Train Journey Through England', it starts with scenes shot at the Museum of Brtitish Trransport, Clapham, London, followed by various sequences introduced with captions, including footage of airplanes at London Airport, cruise ships and various railway footage

John Burnie (1946-2009) was an engineer and a lifelong railway enthusiast. He was a member of the Scottish Railway Preservation Society and he contributed to the development of the Scottish Railway Museum at Bo’ness, where he became a curator. The films and sound recordings were made mostly in the 1960s, when John and his father travelled around the UK on steam trains and John made films of these journeys.
