The Way Ahead: Wyvern News Issue No.4 (1962)

The Way Ahead was a staff film magazine that ran to 10 films in total.

The first films were known as Wyvern News Issues Nos. 1 to 6 and were dedicated to reporting affairs on the London Midland Region of British Railways. National News Issues Nos. 7 to 10 covered the whole railway network. The series was filmed in mono but became an increasingly high burden on the film unit's resources.

Wyvern News Issue No.4 was a compilation of the following news reports.

1: The New Locomotives - review of new diesel engines.
2: Clerk of the Weather - Bill Sharpe, station master.
3: Feeling the Draught - tests to stop draughts in new goods sheds.
4: Auto-matic Barriers - at Marston, Bedford.
5: Coal Control - Notts.
