A comedy in the tradition of _"Hi-de-hi!" (1980)_ and _"You Rang, M'Lord" (1990)_, sharing much of the same cast. Set around a railway station in 1960's rural England, the employees of the state run railway system are the usual bunch of misfits, constantly putting their foot in it just trying to live their normal lives.

The title was a reference to the music hall song and Will Hay film Oh, Mr. Porter! (1937) and a modified version was sung at the end titles by Su Pollard: "Oh, Dr. Beeching what have you done? There once were lots of trains to catch, but soon there will be none, I'll have to buy a bike, 'cos I can't afford a car, Oh, Dr. Beeching what a naughty man you are!" See more »
Thats Yorkshire for right good, and it was, l have all the episodes on tape and l watch them over and over again, given more time this would have been a classic sit com, as it is it`s a really good one.
Holland, Shane, & Pollard try and suceed, as does the rest of the cast, l love the way May in the Buffet always said how nice Mr Parkin was-l would think!..it was funny...pity if finished...but l enjoy the episodes that were made...
