Volume 97

The Western around Worcestershire (60-mins) Price £19.75

Jim Clemens Collection No.11. This film shows the days of steam on the line from Hereford to Worcester and through Campden to Moreton-in-the-Marsh. This was the last Western Region Class “1″ service to be worked by steam, notably by Castles allocated to Worcester shed. There are other Western types on view such as Halls, Granges, Prairies and Panniers. Some LMS types also pass through the region and even an LNER A1 came to Worcester. Branch lines are included such as the Bromyard Branch which was also visited by a Collett 0-6-0 on a driving special for enthusiasts and also a decorated pair working an excursion to Blackpool on the last day in 1964! The Shipston branch is also featured with the daily freight. Filmed in the early 1960’s there is a wealth of memories here through MALVERN, WORCESTER, PERSHORE, HONEYBOURNE, EVESHAM and climbing CAMPDEN bank. This was the route of the ‘Cathedrals Express’, all Brunswick Green and sometimes chocolate and cream stock, all competently filmed by local Worcester enthusiast JIM CLEMENS.

Volume 62

Steam Through the Cotswolds (60-mins) Price £19.75

Jim Clemens Collection No.1. This is the first volume from the JIM CLEMENS COLLECTION covering the route of the famous CATHEDRALS EXPRESS from Paddington to Worcester and Hereford. Branch lines along the route are also visited such as Newbury to Didcot, Oxford to Fairford, Moreton to Shipston, Kingham to Notgrove and Chipping Norton. At Worcester we take a look at the “Vinegar” branch and the Kidderminster portion of the Cathedrals Express. On to Hereford with that portion viewing all stations and visiting the Bromyard branch, before Malvern and Ledbury and an arrival at Hereford. Castles abound of course with a little footplate running thrown in. There are Halls, Granges, Manor, 53xx, 28xx, 22xx, 4lxx and Panniers. A King appears at Princes Risborough and a GWR Railcar at Ledbury. This is pure detail on a route not seen on video before in its entirety.
