On the West Highland line, we visit Tyndrum, Crianlarich, Rannoch and the old Fort William harbour station in the days of steam with ex-LNER/LMS engines. Next, a visit to the Mallaig branch in the 1960s for steam and early diesels as well as the later 1980s steam specials featuring ex-NBR 0-6-0 “Maude” and Black 5s. There are scenes at Glenfinnan Viaduct, Arisaig and Mallaig where we also see a lot of ferry activity in the harbour.

Northwards to the Kyle of Lochalsh line, and views of the old Skye ferry in action at Kyle plus ships being loaded. Various station scenes include shunting with a Class 26 and service trains with Pullman observation coaches.

Volume 168

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 The area covered was from south to north including some long closed lines and using locomotives often to be withdrawn as the last in their class.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.

Locomotives of War (80-mins) Price £19.75

The railways of Europe and the Far East played a vital role in periods of war. In the 20th.Century there were two World Wars and this production portrays most of the locomotive types that were built for service in both conflicts, primarily for the Allies.We include the ROD types from WW1 such as ex-GCR 2-8-0s and Eastern 0-6-0s. During WW2, the War Department initially adopted the LMS Stanier 8F 2-8-0 for standard heavy freight. We show this type in service both at home and the Middle East. Later in WW2, the design was simplified into the WD “Austerity” 2-8-0s and extended with the 2-10-0s. Serving alongside were the Hunslet designed WD “J94” type 0-6-0 Saddle Tanks. We feature examples of all of these locomotives.

The Americans built 2-8-0, 2-8-2 tender engines and 0-6-0 tanks. Army training camps such as Longmoor were used to train staff in railway work We also show examples of narrow gauge engines that served in WW1.

All of these types were designed for a short life, but some still survive today. They can be seen at work on preserved railways, especially for the WW2 re-enactment events. These are illustrated on the Churnet Valley Railway, Keighley & Worth Valley Railway, Severn Valley Railway and the East Lancashire Railway.

Most locomotives shown are British built and we see some of them at work in Turkey, France, Poland, India and Australia.
