London Midland Steam Miscellany No.3 (88-mins) Price £19.75

**RELEASED September 2016**

THE JIM CLEMENS COLLECTION No.32. The third in our miscellany series covering London Midland steam. Using mostly unseen film taken from the Jim Clemens collection it is largely assembled in the order the film runs off the original cine reels and has coverage across much of the Region.

We visit Bescot in December 1964 to witness the end of the LNWR ‘Super Ds’, Carlisle Kingmoor shed in both 1964 and 1967, the Crewe to Carlisle line behind ‘Coronations’ and ‘Britannias’, the last day of the Stanbridgeford to Leighton Buzzard line in June 1962, the Wolverton to Newport Pagnell branch in August 1964 and group action at Lichfield Trent Valley in 1963.

Next we travel to Bromsgrove for scenes on the Lickey Incline between 1961 and 1964, including the now-preserved Jubilee “Kolhapur” making an unaided ascent on a freight train. We continue along the ‘loop line’ from Barnt Green, through Redditch, Alcester, and Evesham to Ashchurch just before its closure as a through route in 1962. Onwards to the Worcester area and then along the branch from Ashchurch to Tewkesbury, Ripple, and Upton-on-Severn in 1959 and 1960 with 4Fs and 3Fs. This is followed by scenes at Halesowen, Dowery Dell Viaduct, Saltley shed in November 1961, the Gloucester area and Bristol Temple Meads between 1960 and 1965.

A visit to Birkenhead shed in February 1967 sees a profusion of 9Fs plus the end of the ‘Crabs’. There is footage of Shrewsbury to Ruabon line, Wrexham, Chester in the mid-1960s and Northwich, Patricroft and Lostock Hall sheds at the beginning of 1968. The last train is seen over the SMJR from Stratford to Woodford Halse in April 1965 with a 4F and we visit Banbury in the summer of 1966 with Black 5s. Finally there are visits to the branches from Bedford to both Northampton and Hitchin in 1959 hauled by Ivatt 2-6-2Ts.

There is something for all LM enthusiasts with a variety of classes ranging from ‘Coronations’, ‘Royal Scots’, ‘Jubilees’, and Black 5s, all the way down to even 2Fs – a London Midland delight!!

The archive film is mostly in colour and filmed in the late 1950s and the 1960s. An authentic sound track has been added along with commentary to complement this further nostalgic look at the last years of London Midland steam.

Volume 191

Diesel Electric Heyday Part 1 (75-mins) Price £19.75

**RELEASED February 2015**

This is the first volume in a series featuring the diesel electric locomotives of British Rail. Here we mostly cover the low powered Types 1 & 2 . Many scenes are from the early days with locomotives in their original green liveries ; others show the changes into BR Corporate Blue.

We start with glimpses of English Electric Type 4s, Deltics (including some rare footage of the blue prototype on action of the ECML), and a Metrovick Co-Bo! We also see Southern DEMUs including those specially designed for the narrow tunnels on the Hastings Line.

A brief visit to Crewe Works is followed by footage of the very successful EE Type 1s in action at Bescot, Loggerheads, on the WCML and at several collieries. The less successful centre-cab Clayton Type 1s are seen in action at Shotts, Millerhill, Pelaw and on Hest Bank.

The workhorse Brush Type 2s were introduced in 1957 and there are scenes of them at work at many locations across the network including Harringay, Hadley Wood, Cambridge (on the Royal Train), Paddington, Wennington, Instow on the Bideford branch and on the last train along the Dunstable branch (“The Skimpot Flyer”).

In Scotland, the short lived North British Type 2s are seen at Elgin, Perth, Inverurie, Gleneagles and Stirling.

The numerous BR Sulzer Type 2s operated throughout the UK. We see them as far afield as on Tyne Dock Iron Ore trains, the Tay Bridge, Kyle of Lochalsh, Thurso, Ais Gill, Manchester, North Wales and Dawlish. We also see them on the Cambrian at Llynclyss, on milk Trains at Torrington, china clay trains around Bodmin, and at Bredbury Junction being banked by a Stanier 8F. Even a pair triple heading with a BRCW Type 2 on the “Royal Highlander”!

Finally, there are scenes of BRCW Type 2s working commuter trains at Luton before we head north to see them in later life working on the Kyle of Lochalsh line. There is also rare footage of D6547 hauling Schools Class “Repton” and M7 30053 en route to Canada. Plus footage of piloting Bulleid Pacifics up the ferocious Bincombe Bank, and around Shrewsbury during Crewe Station refurbishment

All the archive film is in colour and an authentic soundtrack has been added along with an extensively researched commentary.

Volume 178

Steam Memories of the Sixties Part 1 (60-mins) Price £19.75

**RELEASED JULY2013**

THE CHRIS NOYLE COLLECTION No.2. Chris Noyle filmed railways in Britain and Europe from 1962 to 1972. This is the second volume from his collection and features the steam scene in England, Scotland and Wales in the 1960s.We start in Scotland at Aberdeen and Perth for B1s & A4s including 60016 “Silver King” before views at Derby in 1962 of the last remaining unrebuilt Patriot, 45543 “Home Guard” and of “Clun Castle” on the first part of the Paddington to Gloucester to Birmingham Snow Hill rail tour in 1965.

Chris then visited Bridgnorth on the Severn Valley Railway in 1968. In those very early preservation days, steam trains only ran as far as Hampton Loade. A far cry from the scene today!

Then onto the Southern in 1967 and a variety of scenes right up to the end of steam at a number of locations including Basingstoke, Guildford and Nine Elms Shed featuring Bulleids, Standards, USA Tanks and even an A4 Pacific! The very last “Bournemouth Belle” Pullman passes by…

In 1966, Chris went on a rail tour, this time from London to North Wales hauled by Britannia 70004 from Crewe, a pair of Stanier 2-6-4Ts from Llandudno to Blaenau Ffestiniog and a Crab to Denbigh. Another rail tour is Black 5 hauled around the Walsall & Wolverhampton area before going forward via Shrewsbury to Chester with 7029 “Clun Castle” and then returning to Crewe with a former Crosti boilered 9F.

In 1967, he visited the Banbury area to see the last two ex-GW steam hauled trains to Chester pass by with preserved Castles and he also visited the shed to see the last remnants of steam.

The North East Region was of great interest to Chris. There are many scenes in this area before steam finished in September 1967, including at Tyne Dock shed. Onto the Midland Region for footage around Carlisle and Leeds in 1966 including a visit to Holbeck Roundhouse and Farnley Junction sheds featuring Britannias and ex-LMS Black Fives. Whilst in the area, Chris also visited Wakefield to see WD 2-8-0s and the other engines there. Finally, back to the North Eastern Region in 1967 for extensive footage of J27s, Q6s (including the now preserved 63395), WDs and K1s hauling coal trains and empties to and from Seaham, Hall Dene and Vane Tempest Collieries.

All the archive film used is virtually all in colour and an extensively researched commentary along with an authentic soundtrack has been added.

Steam Routes Manchester to Crewe (67-mins) Price £19.75

A video featuring the line between MANCHESTER and CREWE. Particular emphasis is on the two places, one a city and the other a railway town. Filmed in the 1960s, steam traction predominates.

MANCHESTER VICTORIA and the nearby MANCHESTER EXCHANGE stations were busy with passenger, freight and parcels traffic. It was at the foot of MILES PLATTING incline where banking often took place. At the summit was NEWTON HEATH shed and a visit is made there.

The line from MANCHESTER PICCADILLY was electrified from 1960 but steam power existed here alongside the new AC electric locomotives. At the northern end, STOCKPORT kept steam until 1968 and as well as the station, EDGELEY shed is visited.

We then travel southwards through CHEADLE HULME, WILMSLOW, GOSTREY and on to CREWE where a wide range of motive power is seen from 1962 to 1968; Princess Coronations, Jubilees, Royal Scots, Crabs and Jinties along with BR Standards, Stanier Black 5s and Stanier 8Fs.

There is much nostalgic archive material used in this video of a past history when steam power could still be seen regularly on British Railways.

Volume 118

Electric Traction Archive (60-mins) Price £19.75

The story of electric traction in the British Isles from the Volks Railway to the West Coast Main Line electrification over nearly 80 years.

In the beginning, trams took away trade from the railways who had to look to electric traction themselves in the towns and cities to retake that trade. Electric services grew up around places like London, Manchester, Southport, Glasgow, Morecambe, Tyneside and Altrincham over the years. Using archive film these systems can be seen, some still using early rolling stock into the 1960′s.

Main line electrification followed with the Woodhead route in the 1950′s and then the West Coast main line in stages with new AL electrics at Crewe.

Other systems examined are the Grimsby and Immingham, Swansea and Mumbles, Isle of Man and Blackpool. An industrial line in the North East is also featured.

There are many different voltages and third rail and overhead systems shown.

Fascinating and rare views are in this film. Filmed mainly in colour but with some black and white footage. A detailed commentary and authentic soundtrack completes a nostalgic record of electric services throughout the British Isles. with something different to offer.

Severn to Dee Part 1 (60-mins) Price £19.75

A film on the railways between Bristol, where the River Severn eventually reaches the sea, and Wrexham, close by the River Dee, in the age of steam.The Midland route is taken from Bristol to Gloucester calling at Berkeley Road for a l4xx on the Sharpness branch. Gloucester on the Severn shows normal steam freight working before 3440 “City of Truro” visits in 1985. We go north via Ashchurch with 1420 and 6435 to Worcester. Here we visit the shed and even the works in 1965. A diversion away from the Severn takes the story through Birmingham and Wolverhampton, the Great Western’s route to the north. A Duchess pacific roars through Winson Green. On via Madeley Junction and Upton Magna, which closed in 1964, showing more steam. Shrewsbury, standing well and truly on the Severn, is covered in detail and interesting rare views portray a Royal train, a diesel crashed into a signal box, a Duchess on a running-in turn from Crewe in 1962, amid normal steam working up to March 1967. We then go north to Gobowen and Oswestry. The days when Weston Rhyn had loops, signal box and exchange yards for Ifton Colliery are seen, days of industrial locos working the line to the colliery. 1966 steam takes us over the Welsh border at Chirk onto the River Dee viaduct at Newbridge. County Class 1011 visits Ruabon. and Black 5′s lead on to Wrexham. A few scenes of steam railtours in the 1970′s are included to enhance the story but they were still seen amid the infrastructure of a steam worked railway of semaphore signalling and crossing gates.

Shap’s Steam Glory (60 mins) Price £19.75

When we produced Volume 20 Shap’s Steam Twilight, we advertised it with only Britannia’s, Black 5′s, Standards and 8F’s, all at the end of steam over this famous incline. It has been one of our best sellers over the years and now it is time to produce another version filling in the gaps in the story as more well taken views have come to us. This video does include all the previous types of locomotive but here there is the odd Duchess, Clan, Royal Scot and the 2-6-4 Tanks which banked on Shap before the Standard Class 4′s. Instead of Crewe as a starting point we begin at Lancaster and visit the Arnside line and Windermere branch. There is more action on Grayrigg than before. Excellent action on the troughs of Hest Bank and Dillicar. We had to include yet another cab ride on a Shap banker. Shed scenes at Tebay and Carnforth provide nostalgic viewing as engines are prepared for the struggles over the one thousand foot summit of Shap. One Britannia really struggles as it is brought to a stand at Scout Green in a westerly gale! A double header out of the loop at Tebay was not staged but the crews entered into the spirit of things for the cameraman. Thirteen cameramen provided the film for this production. The men who worked this railway are seen at work, the grime and the glory of what was Shap, even a cow could almost disrupt the West Coast Main Line traffic! Sit back and enjoy this one if nothing else, taken on 8mm & 16mm film with authentic sounds taken at the time for your enjoyment.
