Volume 195

Diesel Electric Heyday Part 2 (72-mins) Price £19.75

**RELEASED June 2015**

This is the second volume in a series featuring diesel-electric locomotives of British Rail. Here we feature the higher end of the power range dealing with Types 3, 4 and 5 as well as HSTs.

Many locations are visited, from the West Country to both East and West Coast Main Lines. Scenes also cover the Lickey Incline, Shropshire, Settle & Carlisle, Taplow, Manchester Victoria, Chester, King’s Cross and Hitchin to name a few.

We also include some extremely rare footage of the Hawker-Siddeley “Kestrel” in action at the Brush Works in Loughborough. Other classes include 33, 37, 40, 45, 46, 47, 50, 55 and 56, plus some odd glimpses of Metro Vick Co-Bos, Baby Deltics and a Class 13 at Tinsley with 40 001 running around.

Spread over a number of years we see many types in their original green liveries as well as their later Corporate Blue. Other features include a Class 45 working with a brake tender, a couple of shots of the ill-fated DP2 plus an extraordinary scene on Shap where following a EE Type 4 failure a steam banker is used behind which is another EE Type 4 complete with its own train!

A number of special workings also feature such as the “Deltic Fenman” and the “Deltic Devonian”. We also see the 1977 introduced “Jubilee” at Chelmsford with a pristine 47 164 complete with a Union Jack emblazoned on its sides. Several Pullman trains are seen including the “Tyne-Tees Pullman”, “Yorkshire Pullman” and “Queen of Scots”. We enjoy scenes of 47s, 50s and HST along the sea wall at Dawlish as well as the comings and goings at York with numerous Deltics in action.

There are some brief shots of the HST prototype at Shildon; now the subject of “Project Miller”. We do not ignore freight and many different types of goods traffic are seen from early mixed consists, Speedlink, tanks, stone and Merry-go-Round trains, the latter in the hands of both Class 47s and 56s.

All in colour throughout except for the Kestrel film. An authentic soundtrack has been added along with an extensively researched commentary.

Volume 190

London Midland Miscellany No.1 (60-mins) Price £19.75

**RELEASED January 2015**

We originally put this volume together over 10 years ago but after we received much more North Western film we abandoned its release and instead made the 10 volume series “Along LMS Lines”. However the demand for LMS steam scenes seems insatiable and so we have decided to release this volume as the first of a new series. Some sequences appear in “Along LMS Lines” but we are sure you will enjoy this volume in its own right! More “London Midland Steam Miscellanies” will follow using previously unseen material.

We begin at Preston with plenty of steam action around the station area, including the engine shed, and then head north. After passing through the 1939 closed station at Barton & Broughton there is a visit the signal box. Brock station also closed in 1939 but there were water troughs nearby. Here, 45531 is making an impressive display dousing its train! Then on to Garstang & Catterall where the local pick-up goods is shunting the yard, and onwards to arrive at Lancaster.

The route of the Midland Railway’s pioneering electrification to both Morcambe and Heysham is covered and includes one of the very last times a steam hauled breakdown train was called out. There is also a journey along the “Little North Western” route from Settle Junction to Lancaster.

We return to the West Coast Main Line and visit Hest Bank and Bolton-le-Sands, before finally arriving at Carnforth. This last bastion of steam is covered in detail and we witness the comings and goings plus the daily routines of a working steam depot before it ceased forever.

All the archive film is in colour and mostly from the last few years of steam traction on these routes. An authentic soundtrack has been added along with an extensively researched commentary.

Steam Routes No.4 Shap to Glasgow (62-mins) Price £19.75

**RELEASED MAY 2013**

“Steam Routes” is a series of films featuring steam traction along specific routes rather than areas, mostly using previously unseen 1960s archive film. Here our fourth instalment contains film of the West Coast Main Line from Tebay and Shap Summit to Carlisle, Beattock Summit and onwards via Carstairs to Glasgow.

We start at Tebay with views of the banking operations to the summit at Shap plus operations at the quarry exchange siding, before descending to Penrith for scenes at the station and its approaches. The line to Keswick, Bassenthwaite & Arnside is visited with an Ivatt 2-6-0 hauled railtour in 1966.

At Carlisle Citadel station, steam is all around and being used on normal service trains as well as railtours. Engines featured include Ivatt 2-6-2Ts, Britannias, Clans, Black 5s, Coronations plus some ex-LNER locomotives from Edinburgh. There is plenty of steam action at Carlisle Kingmoor depot!

Northwards, we travel along the ex-NBR Waverley Route to Riddings and visit the Langholm branch with a J39 0-6-0. A4s and A2s are also seen on specials on the Waverley Route. We return back to the WCML at Rockcliff and Gretna for views of passing steam hauled trains.

Travelling further northwards, we visit Dumfries, on the ex-GSWR main line, and the former “Port Road” to Stranraer for scenes at Castle Douglas plus token exchanging at Crossmichael with a Crab 2-6-0! More scenes at Dumfries station include 4472 on a special and we return to the WCML at Lockerbie for some depot shunting with a Pickersgill tank! We continue on to Beattock for footage of the station, yard and the banking operations for the climb to the 1015ft summit. There are even views inside Beattock Summit signal box and passing locomotives include Clan Pacifics and A4 “Kingfisher” on a freight!

Finally, we descend to Carstairs, Carluke, Motherwell and into the suburbs of     Glasgow including Wemyss and Gourock before arriving at Glasgow Central with steam and blue electrics.

All the archive film used is virtually all in colour and an extensively researched commentary along with an authentic soundtrack has been added.

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.

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.

In this volume we begin at Nottingham Victoria and work south to LEICESTER. The DESFORD line is seen with a 2F 0-6-0. A steam tour in 1963 covers the route east from NOTTINGHAM on the Great Northern Grantham route to Bottesford and then to Melton Mowbray and Leicester. East again to Seaton, Luffenham and Ashwell.

South to Rugby and onto NORTHAMPTON. The area east of here towards WELLINGBOROUGH and Peterborough was full of industrial stone quarries. The narrow gauge Wellingborough and Kettering systems are covered along with NASSINGTON, EXTON PARK, STOREFIELD, IRCHESTER, SCALDWELL and CORBY.

Returning to Northampton we cover the line south via OLNEY to BEDFORD and HITCHIN. Then BEDFORD to BLETCHLEY. Before returning north to NUNEATON, the LEIGHTON BUZZARD to DUNSTABLE and WOLVERTON to NEWPORT PAGNELL branches are visited. A call once more at RUGBY for Princess Coronations and even the “Duke of Gloucester” passing through a station now heavily rebuilt with so many yards and sidings removed.

There are 22 different classes of steam engine in this volume from Jinty to Pacifics. Eastern steam and even a Western Hall appear. With Industrial engines included, it all adds up to 80-minutes of enjoyable video!

A further look at the West Coast Main Line in our series of videos that covers in detail the route from London Euston northwards to Carlisle and Glasgow.

Carnforth is our centre point before moving out along the Cumbrian Coast to Whitehaven and returning back to Carnforth for another brief encounter with the steam scene around the station and its motive power depot in 1967 and 1968. Then northwards to Oxenholme and the last steam freight on the Windermere branch in 1968. Climbing to Grayrigg for a tantalising glimpse of Tebay and Shap incline that will form the core of our next volume in the series, Part 7.

Mostly filmed from 1966 to 1968, this video shows mainly Black 5s, 8Fs and Standards but is well filmed nevertheless. There are also some “Return to Steam” tours to Grange-over-Sands which are supplemented with a few minutes spent watching LNWR No.790 “Hardwicke” returning to the Cumbrian Coast in 1976 and very rare footage of the last steam hauled TPO from Whitehaven in 1985.

Volume 118

Electric Traction Archive (60-mins) Price £19.75

The story of electric traction in the British Isles from the Volks Railway to the West Coast Main Line electrification over nearly 80 years.

In the beginning, trams took away trade from the railways who had to look to electric traction themselves in the towns and cities to retake that trade. Electric services grew up around places like London, Manchester, Southport, Glasgow, Morecambe, Tyneside and Altrincham over the years. Using archive film these systems can be seen, some still using early rolling stock into the 1960′s.

Main line electrification followed with the Woodhead route in the 1950′s and then the West Coast main line in stages with new AL electrics at Crewe.

Other systems examined are the Grimsby and Immingham, Swansea and Mumbles, Isle of Man and Blackpool. An industrial line in the North East is also featured.

There are many different voltages and third rail and overhead systems shown.

Fascinating and rare views are in this film. Filmed mainly in colour but with some black and white footage. A detailed commentary and authentic soundtrack completes a nostalgic record of electric services throughout the British Isles. with something different to offer.
