Steam Railtours in the Sixties (85-mins) Price £19.75

The Chris Noyle Collection No.1. Chris Noyle filmed railways in Britain and Europe from 1962 to 1972. This is the first part from his collection and features rail tours in England during the period 1964 to 1967. The area covered was from south to north including some long closed lines and using locomotives often to be withdrawn as the last in their class. And often a single tour would involve many changes of motive power.

With footage from a variety of rail tours, and many steam hauled normal service trains in the background, we visit the Weymouth Quay Tramway for 13xx panniers, the Bluebell line in the early preservation years, Kings Cross and the ECML with a double-tendered 4472 “Flying Scotsman”, Westbury, Nottingham Victoria, the Settle & Carlisle, Waterloo and Sussex. More scenes and Wellingborough, Higham Ferrers, Northampton Bridge Street, Kettering, Spondon, Derby and a 4F on the Wirksworth branch.

Also featured are tours in the Thames valley including Witney and to the north, Haydon Bridge with ex-LNER 62007, Newcastle with a V2 and passing green NE electrics. Among other locations and lines visited are Weymouth with A4s, Yeovil Junction, Eastleigh, Swanage, Bridport, Ilfracombe, Highbridge with two Ivatt 2-6-2Ts, Bath Green Park with two unrebuilt WC pacifics and the Isle-of-Wight. Are some of the Ventnor scenes a model? No, they are very real! Locomotives used include ex-GWR Panniers, Prairies, Halls & freight 2-8-0s, ex-Southern S15s, U Class 2-6-0s, Q1 and Bulleid pacifics, ex-LMS 3Fs, 4Fs, Patriots, Jubilees and Black 5s, ex-LNER J11, V2, A3 & A4 pacifics and even a B16. Also many BR Standard types including Britannias, 9Fs and the last one of all, 92220 “Evening Star”. A veritable variety!

We conclude with rail tours in and around Manchester, Carnforth and the North West during the dying days of steam between 1967 and 1968.  A mixture of 8Fs, 9Fs, Standard and Black 5s, Britannias and Standard 4 2-6-0s are seen in normal daily service as the rail tours pass by.

Chris always used Kodak colour film. This has served the test of time and all of the footage is in wonderful colour. An authentic sound track has been added along with an extensively researched commentary.

NOTE: This DVD was originally titled “The GWR Recalled”

Jim Clemens Collection No.29. The first in a series featuring scenes of the former Great Western Railway using archive film from the 1920s all the way to the diesel hydraulic era in the 1960s. In this part we predominately feature express classes. The early GWR scenes are a complete contrast to steam on the Western Region in its last five years from 1960 to 1965 and this production is appropriate for the 175th anniversary year of the GWR.

There are many scenes of these locomotives taken from all over the territories of the former GWR and Western Region of British Railways. From Paddington in London to Penzance in the Far West; to Worcester & Birmingham in the Midlands; to Swindon & Bristol; these are just few of the many locations visited.

There are special events, tours and normal service train workings of both passenger and freight over this well loved railway. A short sequence features the early diesel hydraulics with D600s, Warships & Westerns.

As a preview of Part 2, we conclude with views of Halls, Granges, Manors, Dukedogs, 2-8-0, 2-8-2T & 47xx freight classes & panniers plus a visit to the narrow gauge Welshpool and Llanfair line.

Steam in the Valleys Part 2 (60-mins) Price £19.75

The valleys of Wales once supplied coal to the world. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, some collieries were still shunted by steam locomotives.
Here in our second volume featuring these collieries, we portray steam at MAERDY, MERTHYR VALE, ELLIOT, TY MAWR, CYM, MARINE, BENYON BLAINA, CELYNON NORTH, CELYNON SOUTH, HAFODYRYNYS, TAL Y WAIN, BLAENAVON and TREDEGAR.

Horse worked mines are also visited. These used narrow gauge track and at DARRAN open cast site we see horse traction being used before the arrival of steam.

Both steam and diesel BR motive power served the valleys and we record the various comings and goings of coal trains.

All filmed in colour by enthusiasts who found these industrial locations both fascinating and friendly after the demise of BR steam in the valleys of Wales.
