Vol. 1: Santa Fe to China Part 1


Vol. 1: Santa Fe to China Part 1

Ref: AC1001D


In this our first volume, we take a diverse look at Chinese steam in action in February 1991 at a time when this form of motive power was still dominant over large parts of the country.

We journey along the rarely visited 600mm gauge line based on Jijie in southern China with a Baldwin 0-10-0 in action.

Then there are stunning scenes in the Gobi Desert near Zhongwei where double-headed and triple-headed QJs of the Sante Fe 2-10-2 wheel arrangement can be seen hauling enormous freight trains.

At Changchun motive power depot there is an lot of continuous activity in and around the depot.

Finally we see JS Class 2-8-2s at work in the Hunjiang area of south-east Manchuria in temperatures of around –15C!

Duration: 58-mins

Vol. 3: 31s North West (56-mins)


Vol. 3: 31s North West (56-mins)

Ref: AC1003D


The Brush Class 31s are a long-lived type still to be seen widely around the network.

In 1993 they were very active on passenger services out of Liverpool Lime Street and the first part of this volume follows examples in various liveries on workings between Liverpool and Blackpool North as well as workings between Liverpool and Manchester Victoria during the few weeks in early 1993 when stock shortages elsewhere caused 31s to be drafted in to fill the gap.

Passenger workings on the Carnforth to Barrow line are also seen as well as some miscellaneous departmental workings on the West Coast Main Line at Winwick and at Chester.

All locations are identified and there is no distracting commentary.

Vol. 5: Industrial Steam Across Britain Vol.1


Vol. 5: Industrial Steam Across Britain Vol.1

Ref: AC1005D


Industrial steam in Britain survived for more than a decade into the 1970s after the end of steam on the BR network in 1968. Industrial enthusiast Geoff Monks travelled the length and breath of the country recording with cine film these last vestiges of steam.

In this first volume of our series of industrial steam across Britain we see steam working at collieries, power stations, docks and private industrial sites, most of which have now vanished just as completely as the steam engines that served them.

Well known colliery systems such as those at Waterside, Polkemmet, Bedlay, Bickershaw, Littleton and Mountain Ash are covered amongst others, together with glimpses of little visited power stations such as those at Lancaster and Neepsend as well as the better known sites such as Agecroft

Steam is seen at work at Falmouth Harbour and the Port of Par as well as such diverse sites at Whifflet Foundry and C,P.C Trafford Park.

Duration: 78-mins

Vol. 6: Steam Across the World No. 1 - East & West Africa (50-mins)

Steam operations were still quite widespread in some parts of Africa in the mid 1970s and during this period Geoff Monks travelled to several countries in search of little visited lines and rare locomotive classes.

This volume depicts steam at work in Kenya, Angola, Mozambique and Swaziland, showing such delights as wood-burning Garratts on the Benguela Railway, narrow gauge Bagnall, Orenstean & Koppel and ALCO built engines on remote jungle lines and the world’s last Atlantic 4-4-2s in action in Mozambique.

In Kenya we see Maroon Garratts and named 2-8-2s whilst in Swaziland there are massive 4-8-2s on the ore trains.

A kaleidoscope of steam locomotive classes almost all of which have disappeared forever.

The first in a series featuring steam in normal everyday service on British Railways prior to 1968. This volume features the work of Ray Hammond who travelled the length and breadth of Britain recording on cine film the final years of BR steam in the 1960s. Here we depict steam on five of the six regions then operating showing the considerable variety of classes that could be seen.


We see ex-GWR locomotives with number and nameplates still intact, and an endless flow of Bulleid Pacifics passing to and from the west at Salisbury.


At Shrewsbury there are ex-LMS and ex-GWR types together and in the North-East we see East Coast Pacifics plus other classes.


In Scotland we see a fine array of steam power ranging from ex-LMS "Crabs" and Class 5s to the J36s, V2s, B1s and A2s of the former LNER as well as BR Standard classes.


The archive film is sourced from 8mm colour cine film and mastered on professional equipment. An authentic soundtrack has been added along with an informative commentary.

The second in our series featuring steam in normal everyday service on British Railways prior to 1968.


This volume features the work of Ray Hammond who travelled the length and breadth of Britain recording the final years of BR steam on cine-film and is a record of steam in 1965 on four of the six regions then operating.


We see ex-Great Western classes at work in their final year of service along with some delightful scenes on the Isle of Wight as well as Southern scenes on the mainland.


In the North-East pre-grouping and other classes of locomotive are seen both north and south of the Tyne while further south we observe intensive traffic in and around the Leeds and Bradford areas.


A brief visit to Scotland witnesses two of the restored pre-grouping engines at work in their final year of service prior to their removal to the Glasgow Transport Museum.

The third in our series featuring steam in normal everyday service on British Railways prior to 1968. This volume features the work of Ray Hammond who visited a variety of locations during the 1960s.


This volume depicts steam on four of the six regions then operating. Even at such a late date for steam, a considerable variety of classes could still be seen.


The Western Region is represented by the last day at Bath Green Park whilst on the Southern, Bulleid Pacifics still abound amongst the turmoil of electrification works.


An amazing intensity of steam working is seen on the Wirral and we see ex-LMS and BR classes at points such as Warrington and Wigan on the West Coast Main Line .


We conclude with a visit to the North-East where elderly pre-grouping classes were still hard a work around Blyth and Tyne Dock.

Vol.10: Steam Across the World No. 2 - Sumatra & West Java (44-mins)

Ref: AC1010D


Until the early 1980s, an amazing array of steam power could still be found in the Republic of Indonesia and this programme features the work of Geoff Monks and Ray Hammond who visited each country in time to record this remarkable scene on cine film.

This is the first of a pair of programmes covering the two principle islands of the Repubic and it begin on the rack and adhesion worked sections of the West Sumatra system operated by 0-10-0 tanks of Class E10.

We then move to West Java where turn-of-the-century 4-4-0s operating alongside more modern steam power. At the one-tome mallett capital of the World, Cibatu, we see a class CC50 2-6-6-0 on the Garut branch and a DD52 2-8-8-0 working on the main line. Within a few years of being filmed, all of these rare classes had passed into history.

The fourth in our series featuring steam in normal everyday service on British Railways prior to the end of steam in 1968. Ray Hammond travelled Britain recording these final years of BR steam on cine film. In this volume he records the last full year of steam traction in 1967.


On the Southern, steam finished in July 1967. By then the majority of engines were unkempt but not unloved by their drivers, with many tales of Bulleid Pacifics thundering on at over 100mph! Throughout that summer we see a variety of scenes of Pacifics, BR Standards, Ivatts and USA dock tanks all leading up to that finale with well polished Bulleid Pacifics battling it out on the last day.


Over on the London Midland there are some splendid scenes on Shap where a seemingly endless procession of freight, parcels and even express passenger trains were still handled by steam power.


1967 was also the final year of steam working on the North Eastern Region. Here we have some evocative views around Ryhope, on the Silksworth branch and some scenes at Leeds Central during the last days of steam traction.

Vol.12: Steam Across the World No. 3 - Central and Eastern Java

Ref: AC1012D


Until the early 1980s, an amazing array of steam power could still be found in the Republic of Indonesia and this programme features the work of Geoff Monks and Ray Hammond who visited each country in time to record this remarkable scene on cine film.

This is the second of two programmes covering Indonesia and concentrates on Central and Eastern Java. We see such oddities at 0-4-0 tender engines and the notable Manchester built Sharp Stewart 2-4-0s working the Madiun to Ponoroga branch.

Moving eastwards, more unusuall classes are seen in action such as the F10 2-12-2T and the other end of the scale, the anachronistic Surabaja Tram with its Beyer-Peacock 0-4-0 enclosed tram engine.

Duration: 42-mins
