A Miscellany of Electric & Diesel Power No.2 (80-mins) Price £19.75

**RELEASED July 2016**

After the success of our previous miscellany of electric and diesel power (as well as the earlier Diesel Hydraulic and Diesel Electric Heyday series) we have delved further into our archives and complied a second miscellany of film clips that were not included in those earlier volumes. There is a whole variety of scenes across all of the UK mainland, most of which have never been seen before and were taken during the 1960s & 1970s, with a few later scenes from the 1980s.

We start our journey with scenes at Bangor in North Wales, Shap (with steam bankers!), Carlisle, Beattock and Carnforth. We visit the Settle & Carlisle and then the London Midland Region around Birmingham and the Lickey Incline, again with steam bankers! The Shrewsbury area is well covered with a number of workings.

We travel south to the Southern at Hither Green, Clapham and Waterloo, then to the Western at Paddington for a number of Western Class special charter trains, to celebrate the passing of those popular diesel hydraulics. There are a number of scenes around Bristol before we visit the Marlow and Bourne End branches

Back to Scotland for scenes at Fort William, the Mallaig Extension and the Far North line at Georgemas Junction, Thurso and Golspie. Other scenes take in Elgin, the Strathspey line, the Forth Bridge area and Edinburgh Waverley.

Returning south, we visit the Woodhead route with its unique electric locomotives before taking a look at the reopening of Barmouth Bridge in 1986. Then once more to the Southern in 1972 for a journey on the Brighton Belle.

Down in the West Country we explore some of the long forgotten branches and have scenes around Truro, Par, Penzance, Plymouth and Newton Abbot as well as heading up to Ilfracombe. There are indeed many other scenes too numerous to list here.

Virtually all classes of British Railways diesels are seen from Deltics and Warships to diminutive shunters. Electric power includes the EM1s on the Woodhead and those early Southern Bo-Bo electrics. We see DMU and EMU action as well as a number of shots of those infamous 4-wheel rail buses of the 1960s. The prototype HST is seen at Bristol as well as some early liveried HSTs.

All the archive film used is in colour and a informative commentary along with an authentic soundtrack has been added.

A Tribute to the Southern (73-mins) Price £19.75

**RELEASED June 2016**

In this tribute to the Southern, we mostly feature footage taken at Waterloo and at a variety of different locations along the South Western main line to Southampton and beyond. There is even a brief glimpse of the Somerset & Dorset!

We start with a 1930s B & W clip of a King Arthur class 4-6-0 departing from Waterloo before moving on to the 1960s with views of passing trains, mostly Bulleid Pacific hauled, at Pirbright, Basingstoke and Battledown Flyover amongst others. In 1962, the preserved T9 passes through on a special!

Back at Waterloo there is a hive of activity in and around the station throat, with Ivatt 2MTs (fussing about on pilot duty), arrivals, departures, light engine movements and green EMUs.

We journey down the main line to Battersea, Clapham Junction, New Malden, Byfleet and Woking to see trains pass by hauled by Bulleid Pacifics and Standard classes. Even the “Bournemouth Belle” Pullman train passes by, both steam hauled and diesel hauled (by a green Class 47). Plus shunting in the carriage sidings with Standard Class 4 80089.

A brief interlude, and at Southampton Docks we see 34032, light engine, and over on the S&DJR, Ivatt 4MTs near Combe Down Tunnel.

More scenes follow at Clapham Junction and Farnborough before we head off to Brighton and Victoria to see apple green liveried LNER 3442 “The Great Marquess” and 4472 “Flying Scotsman” (twin-tendered) on rail tour duties as well as blue A4 “Sir Nigel Gresley” and Bulleid Pacific 34108 “Wincanton”.

We return to Waterloo for more steam hauled comings and goings, glimpses of Warship, Class 47 and 33 diesels, steam hauled Cartic and breakdown trains plus a quick look inside the Power Signal Box. A few more clips feature steam action at Brighton and Andover.

We conclude our tribute to the Southern with a cameo of Nine Elms Shed at the close of steam, followed by 35023 being coaled and watered before it heads off into oblivion.

All the archive film used is mainly in colour and a commentary along with an authentic soundtrack has been added.

Steam Routes Lancaster to Shap (78-mins) Price £19.75

**NOW IN STOCK MAY 2012**

“Steam Routes” is a series of films featuring steam traction along specific routes rather than areas and mostly using previously unseen archive film from the 1960s. Here our third instalment features the West Coast Main Line starting at Lancaster for the 40 mile journey to Shap Summit.

At Lancaster Castle station (WCML) there are many scenes of steam activity and over at Lancaster Green Ayre we also see 3-car EMUs on the ex-MR Heysham line electric services. We pay a short visit to the Morecambe to Heysham line with Black 5s on service and special trains plus Lostock Hall breakdown train attending a derailment.

Back to the WCML with footage at Hest Bank and its troughs. Many steam hauled trains pass with some picking up water. Overflowing tenders plus a line side fire!

We make an extensive visit to Carnforth and its shed with operations there mainly in 1967 and 1968 when Stanier Black 5s and BR Standards were being serviced in quantity, including the last few Britannias and 9Fs. There are many scenes and even include the odd diesel: a Clayton Class 17, a blue Class 40 and Metrovick Co-Bo D5714. Scenes at the station include Bulleid 35012 “United States Lines” on a special and Britannia 70013 “Oliver Cromwell” on a service train.

We continue through Oxenholme to climb to Grayrigg, Low Fell and Dillicar. A view of the troughs from the 4ft!. Tebay was the shed for the bankers over Shap and there is much footage of the variety of passing trains, including doubleheaders and with assisting banking engines, before we finally arrive at Shap Summit. The occasional Princess Coronation (both red and green), Royal Scot and Jubilee are also seen but the climb on the 1-in-75 incline is very well covered with this new archive footage.

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.

Branch lines are included such as the Bromyard Branch which was also visited by a Collett 0-6-0 on a driving special for enthusiasts and also a decorated pair working an excursion to Blackpool on the last day in 1964! The Shipston branch is also featured with the daily freight. Filmed in the early 1960’s there is a wealth of memories here through MALVERN, WORCESTER, PERSHORE, HONEYBOURNE, EVESHAM and climbing CAMPDEN bank. This was the route of the ‘Cathedrals Express’, all Brunswick Green and sometimes chocolate and cream stock, all competently filmed by local Worcester enthusiast JIM CLEMENS.

Volume 90

Woodhead Remembered (60-mins) Price £19.75

A video for electric traction fans. Not entirely, for steam was seen occasionally on the route especially west of Dinting, But this is the story of ·the 1500v dc system across the Pennines from Sheffield to Manchester. Filmed mainly in the 1960’s, you will see the EM1’s and EM2’s as they were in their green livery as much as they were in blue towards the end. Passenger services are there throughout the route. Class 506 units are seen on the Glossop service and there is coverage of the EM2 class in Holland. All told a pretty comprehensive film of this period of electrification on an ex-LNER line. One day it may reopen again although not at 1500v dc!
