Vol.206 - Scottish Steam Miscellany (60-mins) (Released October 2016)

19.75


**IN STOCK 26th.October 2016** THE VIDEO/DVD THAT HAS JUST ARRIVED AT WOLVERTON RAIL IS.... :-)





Another in our steam miscellany series, but this time covering Scotland. Again, it uses mostly previously unseen film compiled in the order the film runs off the original cine reels and largely without our usual detailed commentaries.


We begin at Carstairs with a very slippery 46244 “King George VI” and then move to Edinburgh Waverley for the first of a number of visits here that also includes St. Margaret's shed and Craigentinny carriage sidings. Not forgotten is the now-closed Caledonian Railway terminus in the city at Princes Street.


Few would have thought that the final work of Gresley' s famous A4s would have on the well known three-hour expresses between Glasgow and Aberdeen. In fact, by June 1964, only one class member was left in England. This route is covered in detail including at Glasgow Buchanan Street, Larbert, Plean, Stirling, Bridge of Allan, Gleneagles, Perth, Forfar, Laurencekirk, Stonehouse, and Aberdeen. There is also extensive coverage at Thornton Junction and Dundee,


At Montrose J37s are seen going about their daily duties, whilst at Aberdeen we make a visit to the Gas Works whose locomotives had tramway-type skirts enclosing their motion.


We next visit Glasgow Central and Paisley Gilmour Street whilst at Kilwinning a Caledonian 'Jumbo' is seen at work as we head towards the Glasgow & South Western stronghold of Ayr. Here there are 2-6-0 'Crabs' aplenty on freight trains, a double-headed boat train from Stranraer, steam on the local to and from Kilmarnock, plus also a lightweight Park Royal railbus.


Sheds seen include Edinburgh St. Margaret's, Stirling, Perth, Dundee, Aberdeen Ferryhill, Ayr and Hurlford. Classes seen include: Coronation, A1, A2, A3, A4, V2, J36, J37, J38, WD 2-8-0, Crab 2-6-0, ex-LMS 2-6-4T, Black 5, Caledonian 3F, Caledonian 'Jumbo' 2F, B1, BR Standard Britannia, & Clan pacifics, Standard Class 5 (including Caprottis), 76xxx, 77xxx and 80xxx.


Filmed largely in colour and mostly during the 1960s, an authentic sound track has been added along with a commentary to complement this further nostalgic look at the last years of Scottish steam.

Jim Clemens Collection No.32. The third in our miscellany series covering London Midland steam. Using mostly unseen film taken from the Jim Clemens collection it is largely assembled in the order the film runs off the original cine reels and has coverage across much of the Region.


We visit Bescot in December 1964 to witness the end of the LNWR ‘Super Ds’, Carlisle Kingmoor shed in both 1964 and 1967, the Crewe to Carlisle line behind 'Coronations' and 'Britannias', the last day of the Stanbridgeford to Leighton Buzzard line in June 1962, the Wolverton to Newport Pagnell branch in August 1964 and group action at Lichfield Trent Valley in 1963.


Next we travel to Bromsgrove for scenes on the Lickey Incline between 1961 and 1964, including the now-preserved Jubilee “Kolhapur” making an unaided ascent on a freight train. We continue along the 'loop line' from Barnt Green, through Redditch, Alcester, and Evesham to Ashchurch just before its closure as a through route in 1962. Onwards to the Worcester area and then along the branch from Ashchurch to Tewkesbury, Ripple, and Upton-on-Severn in 1959 and 1960 with 4Fs and 3Fs. This is followed by scenes at Halesowen, Dowery Dell Viaduct, Saltley shed in November 1961, the Gloucester area and Bristol Temple Meads between 1960 and 1965.


A visit to Birkenhead shed in February 1967 sees a profusion of 9Fs plus the end of the 'Crabs'. There is footage of Shrewsbury to Ruabon line, Wrexham, Chester in the mid-1960s and Northwich, Patricroft and Lostock Hall sheds at the beginning of 1968. The last train is seen over the SMJR from Stratford to Woodford Halse in April 1965 with a 4F and we visit Banbury in the summer of 1966 with Black 5s. Finally there are visits to the branches from Bedford to both Northampton and Hitchin in 1959 hauled by Ivatt 2-6-2Ts.


There is something for all LM enthusiasts with a variety of classes ranging from 'Coronations', 'Royal Scots', 'Jubilees', and Black 5s, all the way down to even 2Fs - a London Midland delight!!

The archive film is mostly in colour and filmed in the late 1950s and the 1960s. An authentic sound track has been added along with commentary to complement this further nostalgic look at the last years of London Midland steam.

TGV Italy France - Turin to Chambery (123-mins)

TGV Italy France - Turin to Chambery (123-mins)

20.00

This is a Driver's eye view filmed on board an international train service, TGV 9244 travelling from Milan to Paris through the Alps.

We board the TGV, 90 minutes into its journey at the brand new station of Turin Porta Susa, for a spectacular ride through the Alpine scenery. On-board cameras show the view of the road and the driver working with the Italian SCMT train speed control system.

The climb towards the Alpine backdrop is relentless, starting gently at first but then increasing to as steep as 1 in 33, close to the maximum for conventional adhesion based railway vehicles.

The summit is reached inside the 8 1/2 mile long Fréjus tunnel, the first through the Alps opened in 1871 at the time the longest tunnel in the world! With tunnel lighting, we can actually see it as the driver does. Once in France we continue with the Italian crew and Italian signalling until we reach Modane. Now the French crew takes over and we descend, at a similar rate to the climb, towards Chambery in South East France. En route we learn of France's worst ever train disaster and see where 700 soldiers perished on board a runaway train.This feat of incredible engineering, coupled with the spectacular Alpine scenery, is a journey not to be missed.

Commentary is also available in Italian, French and German on this disc and is selected at the beginning from the menu. There is even the option of no commentary at all - just the sounds of the TGV Réseau.

Filmed in the summer of 2015.

The Hope Valley line seen from a class 185 DMU from Manchester Piccadilly on one of the hourly Transpenninexpress services to Cleethorpes, running via Stockport and the scenic Hope Valley route over the Pennines to Sheffield. From Sheffield the landscape changes from one of hills and heavy industry to the rural flatlands of North Lincolnshire.

!!<<br>>!One of the highlights of this journey of contrasts, is the much photographed array of semaphore signals at Wrawby Junction, viewed from the Driver's cab just weeks before abolition. Threading our way through the back streets of Grimsby Town on a single line, we finish our journey at the popular seaside town of Cleethorpes.

Jim Clemens Collection No.31. The second of our "Miscellany" series to cover Great Western Steam. This time we mostly use previously unseen film from the Jim Clemens Collection. Once again the footage has been assembled in the order the film runs off the original cine reels and features wide coverage across much of the old GWR Empire.


A veritable feast of all that ex-GW steam which includes the branch from Oxford to Witney and Fairford, the "Great Western" high speed special on 9th.May 1964 from Paddington to Plymouth and back, a shed visit to Exmouth Junction, Gloucester (Horton Road), Worcester and Stourbridge. We feature the route of the "Cathederals Express" from Hereford via Malvern, Worcester, Evesham, Honeybourne, Campden Bank, Kingham, Oxford, Didcot and Reading to Paddington.


Onwards and we witness the last steam from Swansea to Milford Haven and Fishguard in September 1965, Dowlais Cae Harris and Dowlais Top, Savernake Low Level to Radstock West via Holt Junction in 1959, Three Cocks Junction and the Mid-Wales line, Kingham to Cheltenham via Stow-on-the-Wold, Chipping Norton, the Bromyard branch, Shepton Mallett High Street, the Helston Branch, Malmesbury, Highworth and Faringdon branches, the Ditton Priors branch and finally Stourbridge Junction to Wolverhampton Low Level.


A huge variety of ex-GWR steam locomotives is seen ranging from all types of 4-6-0s (Kings, Castles, Counties, Halls, Granges and Manors), 28xx, 43xx, 2251, 72xx, 45xx, 41xx, 61xx, 66xx, 57xx, 94xx, 16xx, 14xx and even a very brief glimpse of a condensing pannier tank! BR Standards put in an appearance as does the odd Warship diesel hydraulic.


There is something for everyone and a Great Western delight for all GW enthusiasts!


The archive film is in both colour and Black & White and was mostly filmed in the 1950s and 1960s. An authentic sound track has been added along with a commentary to complement this further nostalgic look at the last years of GWR steam.

Western Stalwarts -D1015 Marooned One My Generation (129-mins)

Western Stalwarts -D1015 Marooned One My Generation (129-mins)

19.96

Narrated by Diesel Traction Group Chairman ‘Tom’ Sawyer

and produced by Oakwood Visuals in association with the DTG.

“We could have picked any period to open our doors, but leaving our signature livery behind in favour of a fresh coat of maroon small-yellow was a milestone for us, so that is where we begin.”

Together since their teens and to some extent seen as reclusive, thirty years on the collective that is the Diesel Traction Group at last allows diesel-hydraulic fans unprecedented access to their world, engineers Chris Hatton, Paul Koch, Andy Venn, Steve Vial, Steve Wainwright, Trevor Walton, and Richard Williams being at the heart of the Maybach Music.

Captured during behind the scenes moments at Old Oak Common, and on the road with D1015 Western Champion to Penzance, Minehead, and Swanage, the Golden Ochre era is left behind and a new front man takes the stage as the Group enters its Maroon phase. Much anticipated, ‘Champion’ has not been seen in this guise since May 1968, so the resumption of touring recalls the days of 1965 when Maroon was the fresh colour from West London to the West of England. That year, The Who, released ‘My Generation’, so, inspired by the music of that era, our Old Oak Common based ‘Thousand’ relives those glorious days.

D1015’s pair of MD655 Maybach engines is ready to unleash 2,700hp, so brace yourself for a 90mph ride!

DO YOU WISH IT COULD BE 1965 AGAIN?

More than just a DVD

In addition to taking you behind the scenes, this DVD also includes a 16-page booklet that is packed with information about D1015’s workings from its repaint into Maroon through to the loco’s final departure from the Factory at Old Oak Common. The log includes dates for all workings – light engine, ECS, freight operations and a handful of runs on preserved lines – as well as miles & chains, engine hours (main line and on preserved lines), and other notes.

DTG – Providing a Maybach Music soundtrack for the 21st Century

Although there is a big story to tell, Western Champion is more than capable of doing the talking, so once the railtours start, a switch to the second audio track offers more of the Maybach Music and just the odd introduction as an alternative way to enjoy the programme.

Vol.204 - A Miscellany of Electric & Diesel Power No.2 (60-mins) (Released July 2016)

19.75

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.

British Railway Steam 1968 - The End of an Era (59-mins)

British Railway Steam 1968 - The End of an Era (59-mins)

14.95

Covering the last eight months of BR main line steam, when increasing diesel availability led to less and less work for BR’s run-down steam locomotives, by now all operating from LMR sheds in north-west England. The story begins on New Year’s Day 1968 with a motive power survey and steam depot directory.

Bygone Buxton – Classic archive of the last week of steam at Buxton, one of just 13 depots to retain a steam allocation into 1968, finds Stanier ‘8F’ 2-8-0s in the snow, bathed in sunshine!

Daily duties – Some of the more interesting duties include Manchester’s last regular steam-hauled express, the ‘Belfast Boat Express’ between Heysham and Manchester (Victoria). Also featured is freight around Carnforth, ‘Black Fives’ and ‘8Fs’ on a variety of traffic, and other locations include Preston, Bolton, Lostock Hall, and Manchester.

Rose Grove in retrospect – A tribute to Rose Grove shed in Burnley, including reminiscences from Desmond Melia (Running Shift Foreman) and Jim Walker (the last fireman on a Rose Grove engine). Archive of Rose Grove duties includes the Padiham trip, the Wyre Dock coal trains, steam on shed, and scenes from the cab of an ‘8F’ as it powers towards Copy Pit summit, all complimented by then & now views.

1968 – a special year – As booked freight and passenger services declined, the railtour programme increased, preserved ‘A3’ Flying Scotsman on the East Coast main line contrasting with the BR railtour scene. Star attraction in this section is the last Pacific in BR ownership, No 70013 Oliver Cromwell, but also included is the last named ‘Black Five’, BR Standard 4-6-0s, and a score of double-headed tours on the penultimate weekend.

The end of an era – at fifteen guineas – On 11 August 1968 Nos 45110, 44781, 44871 and 70013 Oliver Cromwell were chosen for the last BR steam railtour, the ‘Fifteen Guinea Special’ from Liverpool (Lime Street) to Carlisle via Manchester (Victoria), Blackburn, and the Settle & Carlisle route, and return. This brought down the final curtain on BR-owned standard gauge steam. Classic British Transport Films archive complements amateur lineside action.
