Volume 211

A Miscellany of Electric and Diesel Power No.3 (83-mins) Price £19.75

**RELEASED September 2017**

In this volume we continue our “Classic Traction” theme covering many of the different classes of locomotives that were in operation across all regions of the network during the 1970s and 1980s. Most of the clips selected have not been previously seen. As before with we have simply compiled the film clips in no particular order and thus a few surprises will be in store as you enjoy the video.

Starting with the Southern, we see Class 33s in action and then over on the Western we see Class 52s and Class 50s in and around the Paddington area. At Old Oak Common Depot a number of Hymeks and other types are stabled around the last of the four round-house turntables. Class 47s are seen all over the network hauling all manner of trains. Several Hymeks are seen working, including D7017 emblazoned with the D & EG signs after purchase by the Group.

On the East Coast Main Line, the famous Deltics are in action (including a glimpse of the first ever Deltic visit to Inverness) and we visit King’s Cross, Brookmans Park, Welwyn Viaduct, Hitchin, Cadwell, York plus several other locations. In Scotland we see class 26s on the Kyle line.

Class 20s were well known for working pairs and we see these on MGR coal trains at locations such as Warrington for the Fiddlers Ferry Power Station. At Tinsley Yard we see one of three class 13s stabled. These were a development from the class 08 and especially built for the yard. Most unusual are the scenes from the old Burry Port and Gwendraeth Railway with triple-headed 03s, working on the restricted height line, which in its early days was actually a canal!

More freight action includes parcels traffic, steel coil, fuel & chemical tank trains and Presflow wagon workings. A few scenes of London Underground units are followed by BR DMUs and EMUs on the Southern, Watford and Southport lines. A rarely seen Motor Parcels van is captured hauling two baggage vans out of Paddington. A German built railbus is also spotted meandering around Kemble. Plus a few shots taken around the South Wales Collieries.

On the West Coast Main Line we see class 85 & 86 electrics followed by a pair of EM1 Bo-Bos on the Woodhead route. Other locations include Churchdown, Banbury, Didcot, Bishops Stortford, (where we see a special guards-van railtour) as well as Barnetby and Chester. Harlow Mill features several stone trains arriving and departing with a variety of 37s, 47s, 56s, 58s, a 59 and 60s providing the power. We also visit High Wycombe, Bletchley, Cheltenham and Shrewsbury areas. Plus a couple of scenes from Wennington and the Settle & Carlisle.

With such a diverse range of locomotives there is an equally diverse range of liveries, from original green two-tone, BR Corporate Blue, Large-Logo, Railfreight sector variants, Inter-City and more including special ‘one-offs’ such as the ‘Yellow Peril’ No.47803. We also see the Crewe Test Train in action plus a couple of passing Motorail services.

Volume 210

London Midland Steam Miscellany No.4 (81-mins) Price £19.75

**RELEASED Mid July 2017**

The fourth in our miscellany series covering London Midland steam. Once again we feature much previously unseen film, largely assembled in the order the film runs off the original cine reels with scenes across much of the Region.

There is considerable coverage around the North-West including Crewe South Shed, Crewe Station, Crewe Works (with “Western” diesel-hydraulics under construction), Stoke-on-Trent Shed, Moore water troughs, Warrington Bank Quay and Warrington Arpley. A brake van tour of obscure lines around Warrington and Widnes behind Standard 2-6-0 No.76077 includes a refuge siding at Daresbury (part of the original Birkenhead route abandoned with the opening of the Manchester Shop Canal in the 1890s) plus that famous railway curiosity at Widnes, a rail flat crossing by No.4 Signal Box! There is plenty of steam action at Winwick Junction, Wigan North-Western and Wigan Wallgate before we move on to Leyland, Farington Junction, Pleasington and Preston. Further north, we visit Carlisle for scenes at Kingmoor Shed as well as at Citadel Station.

South once more and Chester, Gresford Bank, Llangollen Junction (Ruabon) and Hooton are all visited in March 1967 coinciding with the end of the direct Paddington to Birkenhead service. Further south, in 1964, visits are made to the Bletchley flyover, Aynho water troughs, Gloucester, Banbury, the Lickey Incline (including an amazingly long freight train ascending the bank) with summer Saturday holidaymaker trains being seen at Birmingham.

Finally, the last fifteen minutes or so are made up of interesting offcuts from Colin White such as Shap, Tebay Shed, Dillicar water troughs, Oxenholme, Carnforth, Hest Bank, Heaton Mersey and Warrington.

A cross-section of LM motive power is seen such as Black 5s (including the experimental examples plus one with a self-weighing tender), Jinties, 2-6-4Ts, 4Fs, ‘Princess’ and ‘Coronation’ pacifics, Jubilee, Rebuilt Patriots, 8Fs and a variety of Standard classes including Britannias, Clans, 73xxx, 75xxx, 76xxx and 9Fs (including ex-Crosti boilered).

The archive film is in colour and black & white and was filmed between 1963 and 1968. An authentic sound track has been added along with a commentary to complement this further nostalgic look at the last years of London Midland steam.

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.
