Volume 35

Southern Steam Finale Part 1 (60-mins) Price £19.75

This is the first video of a series portraying the definitive history of the last eighteen months of Steam Traction on the Southern Region. The series will cover events in depth as although it was a sad time, there were many exciting events taking place. Many of these have been told in print before but our cameramen were there to film then and a few events never seen before on video.

This first volume covers the first ten weeks of 1966 and 15 different classes are seen in action from the Southern main line to the Somerset and Dorset Joint Railway, the S15 tour with 30837 snow and all to Bordon, the Maunsell mogul to Gosport, Cowes line finale and normal service trains between Waterloo and Weymouth.

Each volume in this series will stand on its own as a video but we hope you will want the full set as the years go by.

Filmed in colour from snow to sunshine by nine cameramen with a few nice glint views, and superbly sound tracked from original recordings. There is no modern day footage used at all, pure archive.

Steam South & West (60-mins) Price £19.75

The early sixties saw Barry Eagles roaming the rails south and west to record the last workings of steam in the South Wales coalfields with 72xx, 56xx, Panniers, Granges and Halls. Journeying via Gloucester, Yeovil and Templecombe we arrive at Southampton Docks where USA tanks worked the wharves and even 3440 “City of Truro” paid a visit. We visit the Isle-of-Wight for the 02 class, Hayling Island for Terriers, Ashford for C class and the ex-LSWR main line from Basingstoke to Weymouth for Bulleids, Standards, S15, Moguls, M7, B4 and the ex-GWR Halls on the Bournemouth to Birkenhead working. Salisbury, Fawley, Lymington and the Swanage branch are also featured.
