The Ruston - In the Blue Lagoon
A rattling yarn that will fascinate all nostalgia lovers, steam fans, engineers, and those interested in the Ruston Heritage.
This story of a conservation miracle tells of the dogged determination of engineering historian Ray Hooley who rescued what is now the World's oldest working excavator from a watery grave. The famous Steam Navvy No 306 was built by Ruston, Proctor & Co in Lincoln in 1909.
The programme looks back at early engineering and uses archive images and film to set No 306 in context.
Bonus material: The Lincoln Trams. A thoroughly enjoyable ride with the Lincoln trams which ran from their depot in Bracebridge to the City Centre and back between 1882 and 1929
