Delight in this rare colour footage of the Queen as she tours the scenic north coast on the Royal Train.
Less than four minutes of colour film reveals how much has happened in three crowded and glorious days. Meet the thousands of people who turned out in small towns and in the fields that line the railway track just to glimpse the new monarch. The whistle stop tour climaxes as the royals make a dramatic entrance to Derry on the deck of the HMS Rocket. As hosts the Wakehursts have immortalised through film their sense that this visit was a great privilege and a moving experience.
This film was digitised as part of the BFI's Unlocking Film Heritage Project.
