Volume 8

Steam Northbound (60-mins) Price £15

This production features pre-1968 BR steam in the North, much of it in Scotland with some extraordinary special workings dating back to 1959 with locomotives that have been in museums for 30-years since. The first section shows BR steam in and around the Dumfries area in the early 1960′s. The inevitable Black 5 is well covered, but also a 2P, Jubilees, Scots, Clans, an A2, A4s and Britannias. Locations include Beattock and Quintishill. The second section shows main line specials with a difference. “Gordon Highlander” double-heading with the Caley Single. Jones Goods and a McIntosh 0-6-0. 46255 “City of Hereford” is seen, as is 60004 “William Whitelaw”. The last Highland Railway No.103 is captured before she was ensconced in Glasgow Museum. “Flying Scotsman”, “Sir Nigel Gresley” and “Clun Castle” (in Carlisle) are seen in the 1960s and “Maude” in 1980. The final section (25-minutes) brings us up to date with glorious scenes of the Highlands as we follow and ride behind 5407 on the Fort William to Mallaig line in 1984. Breathtaking line shots of the locomotive bounding away through the Scottish hills and along lochs in glorious sunshine, over Glenfinnan viaduct and into tunnels.

Volume 7

Tribute to the 40s (55-mins) Price £15

The 40’s are gone – long live the 40’s! From their inception their distinctive shape and sound made the English Electric Type 4’s more acceptable to the average steam enthusiast than did most other classes of diesel. Based on the WCML and ECML as well as G.E.Metals with occasional forays into Southern and Western areas, the EE Type 4’s headed many of the crack expresses during the 1960’s. They took over from A3’s, A4’s, Britannias, Princesses and Coronations. Now they themselves have been superseded by the next generation of power in the shape of 47’s, HST’s, 56’s, 58’s, 60’s and electric power.

Section 1:- Covers the wide ranging activities of the Class across the country on passenger and freight duties. Approximately 15 different locos are featured.

Section 2:- A feature on 40 143 as she heads for Northwich off the main line at Hartford Junction with her load of tanks for the Winnington Branch. Having deposited these she immediately runs round and returns to the main line.

Section 3:- On the Shrewsbury-Hereford line 3-4 times a week aggregates are collected in hopper wagons. This had been a Class 40 duty for some time and we see a number of locos active on this operation including the quite complex run-round procedure.

Section 4:- A short section of 40’s working with other locos, with one or two quite dated scenes in evidence.

Section 5:- The Final Hours. Class 40’s stacked up at Crewe in readiness for breaking up.

Section 6:- Special workings including various tours from both on-train and lineside view points, featuring 40 106 in Green and D200 on her first run since being repainted in original colours.
