Take a look at this site as it has some fantastic footage from lost parks around the country.

Watch Battersea Park being built and the completeion of the Scenic Railway, then join the Coasters builders for the first testrun.

Watch the Kursaal as it gets a spring clean, join Eva as she rides the famous water chute and Frederick Houchin's bicycle ride. Or why not climb aboard the Kursaal's Cyclone Rollercoaster for a ride long forgotten.

There is some great footage to download from this site!!!!

There are some good footage of the Giant Racer Scenic Railway at Wembley and the future Scenic Railway open in Scotland.
