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.

Southern Steam Finale No.10 (60-mins) Price £19.75

**RELEASED September 2015**

The final(!) of our Southern Steam Finale series which covers the last 18 months leading up to the end of steam on the Southern Region in July 1967. Here we use material that was not included in the first 9 volumes plus a few minutes of early preservation footage; but even that is from over 30 years ago! Luckily some Southern engines survived to bring back memories of those halcyon days. We look at some of the older classes the Lord Nelsons, King Arthurs & Schools, which although all withdrawn in 1962, have examples which have been in steam since July 1967.

Twenty years on from the end of steam, Merchant Navy “Clan Line” was seen on the Blackmore Vale Expresses from Salisbury to Exeter, with grateful thanks to Gerald Daniels the then Area Manager. Bullied Battle of Britain 34067 “Tangmere” and West Country 34092 “City of Wells” are also seen on specials, some far away from their comfort zone.

But back to 1967. The majority of the engines at the end were unkempt but not unloved by their drivers, with many a tale being told of a Bulleid Pacific thundering along the track at over 100mph! Most of this volume concentrates on the last steam main line from Waterloo to Bournemouth and Weymouth, but we also take a trip across the Solent to the Isle of Wight to see the Victorian Adams 02 class 0-4-4 tanks. These really useful engines, were sent to the Island by the Southern Railway in the 1920s to replace the ancient engines inherited from the various Island railways. They lasted to the end of steam on the Island, and one W24 “Calbourne” has been preserved.

As well as the more glamorous express engines, we see Urie and Maunsell S15s, Maunsell N & U class Moguls, Bulleid’s Q1s and the USA 0-6-0 dock tanks. Standard Class 4s & 5s are seen, working alongside Standard Class 3 and 4 tanks. LMS Black 5s and Ivatt tanks are also seen plus A4 60024 “Kingfisher” and A2 60532 “Blue Peter” on enthusiast specials.

So pour yourself a glass of Tizer, tuck into that individual apple pie and sit back and enjoy the DVD.

Volume 194

Scottish Railways Remembered Part 7 (60-mins) Price £19.75

**RELEASED May 2015**

The seventh volume in this series and this time our one hour long production includes Carlisle, Edinburgh, Glasgow Buchanan Street, Stirling, Thornton Junction and Perth before ending at Aberdeen.

From Carlisle we travel to Edinburgh on the Warwickshire Railway Society’s three day epic tour in 1966. Steam action is seen a plenty at Waverley station, plus the diesel hauled Royal Train in September 1964. We spend time at St. Margaret’s shed as well as the new marshalling yards at Millerhill. The Railway Society of Scotland’s J36 tour takes us to Portobello, Musselburgh, Smeaton and Corstophine before we explore the former Caledonian Railway’s Princes Street station.

Another new marshalling yard was built at Thorntom Junction where we see J37s, J38s, B1s and WD 2-8-0s all working on the then expanding coal traffic around Fife. Our journey then takes us to the “other” Forth Bridge at Throsk, near Alloa.

A surprise for many enthusiasts was that the final home for Gresley’s A4 Pacifics was not the East Coast Main Line but on the 3-hour expresses from Glasgow to Aberdeen. By May 1964 all the remaining class members were allocated to Scottish Region sheds bar one, and they settled down to several good years of work on this route being quite at home on the tightly timed 3-hour expresses.

We visit the Glasgow terminus of these 3-hour expresses at Buchanan Street before moving on to Stirling to watch the steam activity there including the last workings of Stanier’s Coronation class Pacifics. At Perth more steam action is seen at the station plus a visit to the shed.

Our journey continues via Coupar Angus, Stonehaven and Cove Bay before concluding at Aberdeen. Here we see the joint station that opened in 1867 and then visit Ferryhill shed which was the home, in June 1965, of seven A4 Pacifics.

All the archive film was filmed entirely in colour and mostly during the 1960s. An authentic soundtrack has been added along with an extensively researched commentary complementing this nostalgic look at the railways in Scotland.

Volume 193

Along Southern Lines Part 9 – A Final Tribute (82-mins) Price £19.75

**RELEASED April 2015**

The magic and variety of the Southern is seen in this latest volume in our series. From the mighty and powerful Bulleid Pacifics and BR Standard locomotives on the main lines to the West Country to the tiny Brighton Terrier 0-6-0Ts on Hayling Island. Even a nice cameo of 35028 “Clan Line” from the real days of steam to early preservation. It is not all Bulleids though as we also feature BR Standards and Maunsell locomotives including a Lord Nelson and a Mogul on the West London extension plus a Schools Class 4-4-0 at Reading.

A veritable feast of A1X Terriers follows with them working in their home county of Sussex at Seaford, Newhaven and on Falmer bank double heading with a Brighton E6 Radial tank. More Terrier action is seen at Brighton and Brighton Works before we cross into Hampshire to see them hard at work in their last stronghold of the Hayling Island Branch.

Brighton’s E4 radials are at Horsham and there is even rare footage of Brighton Atlantic “Beachy Head” near Brighton!

Many Maunsell classes are seen in action with U and N Class Moguls, S15 and Q classes on rail tours in Surrey and Sussex (including the “Cuckoo Line”) and S15s and Q1s hauling freight trains through Byfleet, Walton, Clapham Junction and Micheldever.

Travelling away from the Southern, Class U 31639 and Q1 33006 double head a railtour into the Midlands and we see them at Kineton, Wilmcote, Leamington, near Rugby and Wellingborough. 31639 certainly gets around as she is next seen on her home territory at Fareham.

There were many BR Standard classes hard at work on the Southern from Britannias to 9Fs. We see Class 5s, 4s (both 4-6-0s and 2-6-0s), Class 4 2-6-4 and Class 3 tanks working all over the region including the much lamented Somerset & Dorset. There are even shots of 77014 and 78038!

Ex-LMS engines also worked on the Southern. We see Black 5s on the Waterloo to Dorchester main line and the S&DJR, an 8F at Feltham, a 4F and a 2P 4-4-0 at Evercreech and Bournemouth West plus Ivatt “Mickey Mouse” 2-6-2 tanks at Weymouth and Shepton Mallet Tucker Street. The Great Western even gets a look in with footage of three Halls!

We finish with the last days of steam on the Southern, with light engines running to Salisbury for disposal, and 35030 on the up 14.11 from Weymouth, the last steam duty of all.

All the archive film is in glorious colour with a short sequence in ‘black and white. An authentic soundtrack has been added along with an extensively researched commentary.

Volume 188

Along Southern Lines Part 8 – South West to Exeter & Beyond (65-mins) Price £19.75

**RELEASED 9th October 2014**

Most of the Southern’s train journeys to the West commenced at Waterloo where we see a Merchant Navy pacific backing on to its train before departing. Double headed MNs depart from Weymouth followed by a Standard Class 5 at Wareham. There is Bulleid action at Seaton Jct and Barnstaple plus an N Class 2-6-0 at Okehampton.

At Bournemouth Central we see S&DJR 2-8-0s, Bulleid pacifics, Standard Class 5s and Ivatt class 2 tanks. Adding to this variety blue A4 “Sir Nigel Gresley” is on a rail tour racing through the New Forest. Scenes at Brockenhurst feature both Standard tender and tank engines. A Channel Island Bulleid hauled boat train hurries through Beaulieu Road. More Bulleid Pacifics are seen at Southampton Central and Eastleigh with one rushing through Shawford in wintery conditions. Some excellent shots of Bulleids and Standard class 4 4-6-0s at Battledown Flyover are followed by footage at Basingstoke with Bulleids roaring through and departing.

Along the Salisbury line we stop at Andover for some nice Bulleid action, as well as an S15 and a Standard class 5 plus a GWR Manor, Hall and an S&D 2-8-0 on enthusiasts specials. At Salisbury we are just in time to see the crack Atlantic Coast Express arrive. More Bulleid pacifics along with an N Class mogul. A USA tank has the melancholy task of shunting lines of withdrawn engines. Passing Salisbury shed, and Templecombe we reach Yeovil Junction to see a Maunsell King Arthur, an M7 on a push-pull and a Merchant Navy.

Next a trip to Yeovil Town on a Western auto train before returning to the Junction for more Bulleid action. After passing through Crewkerne and Chard, where a pair of S15s are seen, we arrive at Axminster.

We travel past Exmouth Junction Shed where an A4 is being serviced and arrive at Exeter Central for the ACE. A W tank is seen amongst the usual motive power.

Finally we traverse the steep gradient down towards Exeter St Davids to see two West Countries departing, then to Cowley Bridge for the Southern’s Withered Arm with some nice shots of N class 2-6-0s at Eggesford, Halwill Jct. and Braunton plus an Ivatt tank at Instow.

All the archive film is in colour apart from a few sequences in black & white.. An authentic soundtrack has been added along with a researched commentary.

Volume 184

Along Southern Lines Part 7 (75-mins) Price £19.75

**RELEASED MAY 2014**

The Southern always seemed to be the happy friendly holiday line. Their public relations officer the great Sir John Elliot’s slogan was the sun always came soonest to the Southern. This volume begins at Waterloo Station where many happy parents weighed down with suitcases, and their excited children carrying their buckets and spades started their holidays.

We see rebuilt Bulleid pacifics depart from Waterloo. The prestigious Bournemouth Belle is seen passing through Clapham Junction and Common. One of Maunsell’s famous Schools is seen at Woking. A brief visit across country to Guildford where an N Class mogul departs on a train. We quickly return to the Bournemouth main line and several rebuilt pacifics are seen at SouthamptonCentral. This is followed by a nice sequence at Millbrook. The Redbridge causeway is crossed and a Maunsell S15, Standards and Bulleids are seen at Totton station. A trip is taken down the Fawley branch behind two USA tanks. An earlier special sees an H16 tank at Fawley.

Rejoining the mainline, we have a footplate trip into the New Forest complete with views of it’s famous ponies. There are scenes at Lyndhurst Road and shots of Bulleids at Brockenhurst. The Lymington branch train is seen arriving and departing. Standard Class 4, Ivatt and M7 tanks are seen on the branch. There is even a trip behind a Q1 on a railtour. Travelling further west we see Bulleids and Standards climbing Sway bank. A nice long sequence of film at Bournemouth Central station and shed follows, with many engines seen including Lord Nelsons and M7s. Next stop is the now closed line to Bournemouth West. The severely curved platform at Poole sees plenty of activity.

The rarely filmed lines to the west of Poole and the Oxbow bridge are seen, before we head for Wareham and the Swanage branch which is fortunately beautifully preserved. Standard and Ivatt tanks are seen on the line, along with specials top and tailed by Bulleids and Standard 4s. The sun did not always shine and we see some shots taken in the pouring rain. On departing the branch and Wareham, several shots are seen across Ashley Heath before arriving at the old Dorchester South Station with its separate up and down platforms and its complex movements before the station was rebuilt. Bulleids reign supremely here. A train is then boarded for the journey to Weymouth.

All the archive film is in colour apart from a few seconds in black & white.. An authentic soundtrack has been added along with a researched commentary.

Diesel Hydraulic Heyday (72-mins) Price £19.75

**NOW IN STOCK MARCH 2012**

The Western Region of BR adopted diesel hydraulic traction rather than diesel electric. Nearly 400 examples, both express, mixed traffic and shunting were introduced from the late 1950s. By 1977 they had all gone, save for a few preserved examples.

We start with the original A1A-A1A D600 Warship Class 41 and a short B&W sequence of D600 leaving Paddington with an express and then passing Par. A D6xx in green with a yellow warning panel passes Lostwithiel and along Dawlish Sea Wall. Green D601 “Ark Royal” on shed contrasts starkly to a later scene on the Barry scrap line with blue liveried D600 “Active”.

The Class 42/43 Warships, in both maroon and green, are seen on the GW Main Line & in the West Country including scenes at Dawlish, Penzance and Par. Over to Waterloo for Warships of all colours including a short cab ride in D809 “Champion” as it departs. Back to Paddington for Warships double-heading, a blue Warship crossing Saltash Bridge and green D850 at St.Erth.

Inside Swindon Works for views of Class 52 Westerns being built. A rare shot of Desert Sand “Western Enterprise”. The comings & goings of a vast variety of maroon and blue Westerns on expresses at Paddington, out on the GW Main Line, Bristol, Dawlish Sea Wall, Newton Abbott, Plymouth and Penzance plus freight trains in the snow and china clay trains. Also featured are a number of rail tours such as “The Western Talisman” from Kings Cross and the “Western Finale”. Over 30-mins of pure Western nostalgia!

On to Class 35 Hymeks and with b/w film we peek inside the Beyer-Peacock works during their construction. Out on the main line and green and blue Hymeks on a variety of passenger trains including double-heading with steam.

We see NBL D63xx Class 22s shunting at Coleford and Boscarne Junction plus extensive footage of D6346 shunting at Charlbury! Scenes from a bygone era. Look out for the man with the pole!

Finally, the Class 14 0-6-0 “Teddy Bears” and shunting at Coleford Junction and Lydney with D9555. Many Class 14s were sold into industry and we feature No.28 in industrial use.

We close our film with a Western, heading into the sunset…

Apart from a few early scenes in black and white, most of the footage is in colour and the film has an extensively researched commentary with an authentic sound track.

Steam into Wessex Part 2 (80-mins) Price £19.75

Filmed from 1960 to 1967, we journey from WATERLOO to WEYMOUTH, BASINGSTOKE to SALISBURY, and on to the Somerset and Dorset from TEMPLECOMBE to HIGHBRIDGE and BATH. On the South Western main line we stop off at EASTLEIGH to visit the Works in 1963. There is extensive coverage of the Isle-of-Wight railway system, RYDE to VENTNOR and RYDE to COWES via NEWPORT with passenger and freight.

We visit BOURNEMOUTH and WEYMOUTH with its quayside tramway serving the Channel Islands boats in the early 1960′s. Quite unique is a railtour to the ISLE of PORTLAND and EASTON. There are numerous classes of motive power to be seen, from small Class 02 tanks on the Isle-of-Wight to the Bulleid pacifics with the occasional King Arthur on the way. There are freight types like Maunsell moguls, S15s, 700 0-6-0s, H16, W tanks and the inevitable Standards; S & D 2-8-0, Ivatt tanks and Western Panniers including GWR Dock tanks.

Filmed mainly in colour this video takes a fascinating and nostalgic look back at the steam scene of the 1960s in many locations on the Southern Railway.
