**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.

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.

The Severn Tunnel Banker - The Story of the Banking Operation under the River Severn (50-mins)

The Severn Tunnel Banker - The Story of the Banking Operation under the River Severn  (50-mins)

14.95

The railway tunnel under the River Severn that links Wales with England was built in a courageous way from the mid 1870s and finally opened in 1886. The very nature of its construction under the turbulent waters of the Bristol Channel provided the builders with great challenges as they engineered their way two and a half miles and hundreds of feet under the torrent above.

This programme looks briefly at the construction of the tunnel and the efforts to keep local underground fresh water springs from flooding the railway. Indeed the spring water still to this day flows millions of gallons which has to be pumped out by the Sudbrook pumping station on the Monmouthshire side.

The main archive film produced by members of the BAC Railway Society Film Unit shows an every-day operation to assist heavy trains from Severn Tunnel Junction through the tunnel over to the Gloucestershire side. This banking service was crucial to keep traffic flowing along this important stretch of the London to South Wales main line.

We also catch up with two railwaymen who worked on the footplate from Severn Tunnel Jct shed and experienced the techniques required for a safe banking operation.

We follow the life and times of one of the Western Region Prairie tanks, No. 4160, which was so much a part of the depot at Severn Tunnel Junction working the banking duties. Fortunately, we have No. 4160 with us today thanks to the scrapyard at Barry. Sequences of the engine at work on the West Somerset Railway include its final day before overhaul driven by Eric Broom, one of its original firemen at Severn Tunnel Jct

Banbury Boxes North and South

Banbury Boxes North and South

19.96

Last year we produced our very first signalling DVD – ‘Farewell to Arms’. Such was its popularity that we have had numerous requests to make another one. The question is ‘how do you follow that?’ The answer - Banbury! It’s a miracle that the two signal boxes at either end of the station managed to survive for so long on such a busy route. North and South boxes, both well over 100 years old and a mere quarter of a mile apart, eventually closed at the end of July this year and we managed to film them in all their glory shortly before they signalled their last trains. Not only have the boxes closed but the track layout has radically changed as part of a £76 million upgrade, so just about everything in this programme is now history. We never intended to produce a programme entirely on Banbury but the two boxes were so fascinating - and unbelievably busy – that they really do justify a programme of their own. Banbury North’s interior was immaculate and resembled a working museum, still controlling an intensely busy section of route. South Box was even busier as that also had a separate panel controlling Aynho Junction. Not only will you see the workings of the levers, block instruments and bells as well as numerous passenger and freight trains, but there is also footage filmed from passing freight trains with a driver’s eye view of the semaphore signals and the original track layout. As well as Chiltern’s Class 68-hauled services, there are plenty of passing intermodal, automotive and departmental freights hauled by Class 66s and Class 70s. It’s a fascinating mix of train operators and traffic.

The 116-year old BANBURY NORTH BOX is seen on the early shift while the 108-year old BANBURY SOUTH BOX is covered on the late shift controlling trains during the busy evening rush hour. Also includes the historic moment when South Box rang out its last bells in the early hours of July 29th 2016.

This 80-minute programme is introduced by Dave Penney, the Managing Director of Chiltern Railways – the biggest user of the rail route through Banbury.
