The Tyne Valley - Carlisle to Newcastle [Blu-ray]

The Tyne Valley - Carlisle to Newcastle [Blu-ray]

25.00

The Newcastle and Carlisle dates right back to 1825, one of the earliest railway schemes in Britain. It opened in stages from 1834 initially to carry minerals. The railway roughly follows the course of Hadrian's Wall, marking the northernmost border of the Roman Empire in 122 AD. The railway has become an important link between the East and West Coast main lines.

We travel in the cab of a Northern Rail Class 142 Pacer, filmed in the summer of 2017 in its last few years of operation on Network Rail. Our train is on a semi-fast service, running non-stop through the area's wayside stations and calling at Haltwhistle and Hexham, both stations of which retain classic elevated signal boxes that have become iconic features of the line. Much of the route is still signalled with semaphores and we see inside a couple of the boxes. As one would expect, from such an early railway designed to be horse-drawn, there is a lot of fascinating history in the narration.

The Vale of Rheidol Light Railway - Through the Years featuring the L.T.Catchpole Collection

The Vale of Rheidol Light Railway - Through the Years featuring the L.T.Catchpole Collection

18.95

Climbing from Aberystwyth to 680ft above sea level at Devil’s Bridge, VoR passengers enjoy grand views across the Afon Rheidol as they travel the near 12-mile route to a destination rich in folklore, this DVD taking a trip along the line as well as through its history. Photographs date back to 1902, while a rich vein of cine film from 1939 through to the 1980s underpins the changing story of the Edwardian narrow gauge railway that went on to experience the ‘real end of British Railways steam’, and then thrived in preservation.

An overview of the story prior to opening, through Cambrian Railways and Great Western Railway ownership, and into the BR corporate blue era in 1968 precedes a trip up the line, complete with a section of cab ride along the 1 in 50 beyond Aberffrwd. Three different Aberystwyth termini, as well as a Harbour branch and two engine sheds, are all covered, while the oil firing method used on locomotives from the mid-1970s until 2013 is explained prior to departure. En route we call at Llanbadarn, cross the Rheidol, visit all the other halts and even see the pre-war charm of Felin Newydd Falls near Aberffrwd, since remodelled as part of a hydro-electric power scheme. Classic VoR territory includes Oliver Veltom's Curve, the ‘Stag’, the Horseshoe, Quarry Cutting, and Devil’s Bridge.

The concluding sections track the last decade of the Nationalised VoR, including the visit of Mountaineer from the Ffestiniog Railway, and the first 25 years of privatisation. On 5 November 1988 Owain Glyndwr and Llywelyn carried black flags as British Rail prepared to sell off the line, the management of the Brecon Mountain Railway taking over from March 1989. The VoR had entered a new era of massive investment, as explained by Tony Hills, while 1996 saw the railway become wholly owned by the Phyllis Rampton Narrow Gauge Railway Trust.

Taking the VoR back to its pre-war prime, the Trust has built on BMR improvements, reinstating semaphore signalling, the passing loop, sidings and rolling stock shed at Capel Bangor, and providing buildings at intermediate stations. In addition, the creation of a workshop capable of major overhauls comes with grand plans for a new museum to display a fleet of locomotives from around the world.

Chiltern Bubble Cars (DVD)

Chiltern Bubble Cars (DVD)

12.00

The 19th May 2017 was the last day that first-generation DMUs ran in regular passenger service on Network Rail. These were the two class 121 Bubble cars owned by Chiltern Railways that were used on the Princes Risborough to Aylesbury branch.

To record and commemorate the event, Video 125 cameras followed the single units (affectionately dubbed Bubble Cars) in the weeks prior to their withdrawal. The idea for this film came from the former Managing Director of Chiltern Trains Holidays, Tony Parkins, who has been closely associated with Chiltern Railways ever since his involvement with the writing of our Driver's eye view Chiltern Take Two.

It was Tony's idea to produce this film and as such has not only co-written and researched the information but actually presents it to camera.

The film starts with a brief history of the class 121 with a couple of archive clips and old photos. We then come to 2017 and go inside the Chiltern Railways Aylesbury depot to interview the Production Manager who gives us an insight into the whys and wherefores of the DMUs. To find out more about the 121s in general, Tony then went to the nearby Chinnor and Princes Risborough Railway to talk to members responsible for their own Bubble Cars' restoration and a former driver who used to drive the single cars on the Bedford to Bletchley line.

Back to Aylesbury and the Chiltern Railways senior driving instructor takes us through the start up procedure. He then drives unit number 034 from the depot into platform 1 at Aylesbury to start the afternoon diagram. A Driver's eye view of the Princes Risborough to Aylesbury branch follows, including the line's history and the operation of the Bubble car.

The final day arrives and the Chiltern Railways Managing Director gives a farewell speech. With both 121s coupled together for the final few services, it is drizzling when the last scheduled service arrives bringing down the curtain on the very last DMU service operated by a national train operarting company on Network Rail.

Filmed in May 2017

Devon Branches: Gunnislake & Paignton

Devon Branches: Gunnislake & Paignton

18.00

Two cab rides: Plymouth to Gunnislake, Newton Abbot to Paignton

The 14¾ mile long Gunnislake branch is the stub of the former LSWR main line from Plymouth to Exeter. Beyond Plymouth, this surprisingly remote line follows the River Tamar for much of the way. At Bere Alston, our class 150 Sprinter reverses onto the former Callington Branch, which takes us over the Tamar on a classic 120 ft high 12 arch viaduct into Cornwall. The line has steep gradients, tight curves and severe speed restrictions.

For the Paignton branch we join a class 143 pacer at Newton Abbot. The 'Riviera Line' is a 7¼ mile long double track branch that takes in the popular holiday resorts of Torquay and Paignton.

Vol.211 A Miscellany of Electric & Diesel Power No.3

19.75


**IN STOCK**NOW*2nd.Sept 2017** THE B & R DVD THAT HAS HAS ARRIVED WOLVERTON RAIL IS.... :-)






In this volume we continue our “Classic Traction” theme covering many of the different classes of locomotives that were in operation across all regions of the network during the 1970s and 1980s. Most of the clips selected have not been previously seen. As before with we have simply compiled the film clips in no particular order and thus a few surprises will be in store as you enjoy the video.


Starting with the Southern, we see Class 33s in action and then over on the Western we see Class 52s and Class 50s in and around the Paddington area. At Old Oak Common Depot a number of Hymeks and other types are stabled around the last of the four round-house turntables. Class 47s are seen all over the network hauling all manner of trains. Several Hymeks are seen working, including D7017 emblazoned with the D & EG signs after purchase by the Group.


On the East Coast Main Line, the famous Deltics are in action (including a glimpse of the first ever Deltic visit to Inverness) and we visit King's Cross, Brookmans Park, Welwyn Viaduct, Hitchin, Cadwell, York plus several other locations. In Scotland we see class 26s on the Kyle line.


Class 20s were well known for working pairs and we see these on MGR coal trains at locations such as Warrington for the Fiddlers Ferry Power Station. At Tinsley Yard we see one of three class 13s stabled. These were a development from the class 08 and especially built for the yard. Most unusual are the scenes from the old Burry Port and Gwendraeth Railway with triple-headed 03s, working on the restricted height line, which in its early days was actually a canal!


More freight action includes parcels traffic, steel coil, fuel & chemical tank trains and Presflow wagon workings. A few scenes of London Underground units are followed by BR DMUs and EMUs on the Southern, Watford and Southport lines. A rarely seen Motor Parcels van is captured hauling two baggage vans out of Paddington. A German built railbus is also spotted meandering around Kemble. Plus a few shots taken around the South Wales Collieries.


On the West Coast Main Line we see class 85 & 86 electrics followed by a pair of EM1 Bo-Bos on the Woodhead route. Other locations include Churchdown, Banbury, Didcot, Bishops Stortford, (where we see a special guards-van railtour) as well as Barnetby and Chester. Harlow Mill features several stone trains arriving and departing with a variety of 37s, 47s, 56s, 58s, a 59 and 60s providing the power. We also visit High Wycombe, Bletchley, Cheltenham and Shrewsbury areas. Plus a couple of scenes from Wennington and the Settle & Carlisle.


With such a diverse range of locomotives there is an equally diverse range of liveries, from original green two-tone, BR Corporate Blue, Large-Logo, Railfreight sector variants, Inter-City and more including special 'one-offs' such as the 'Yellow Peril' No.47803. We also see the Crewe Test Train in action plus a couple of passing Motorail services.


All the archive film is in colour. An informative commentary and authentic soundtrack has been added.
