British Steam Index Vol.1 - Goods Tanks


British Steam Index Vol.1 - Goods Tanks

Ref: RF559D


A huge fleet of Tank engines for branch freight and shunting greatly out numbered the more famous larger passenger engines. But without these small workhorses, which performed vital unspectacular work often away from the public eye, the nation’s rail system would have rapidly ground to a halt. Now ideal power for preserved lines, many have been preserved, a large selection of which are featured in this programme.

British Steam Index Vol.2 - Heavy Freight


British Steam Index Vol.2 - Heavy Freight

Ref: RF560D


Freight - particularly coal, ore and steel was the lifeblood of Britain’s railways until the development of a comprehensive road network and the decline of traditional heavy industry. Many thousands of tons of bulk commodities needed big engines - lots of them. Speed didn’t matter, but haulage capacity did. A surprising number of heavy freight engines have survived into preservation, and a good selection appear in this programme.

British Steam Index Vol.3 - Express Passenger


British Steam Index Vol.3 - Express Passenger

Ref: RF561D


All the pre-nationalisation companies needed fast engines for passenger trains, and this programme looks at the large number of surviving loco’s from all the pre-nationalisation companies with the exception of BR. whose purpose built passenger engines were Pacifics and appear in Volume 4. Mainline action at it’s best!

British Steam Index Vol.4 - Pacifics

Ref: RF562D


The 4-6-2 wheel arrangement was standard for passenger engines throughout the world, and in Britain they were the largest, heaviest and fastest.

British Steam Index Vol.5 - Mixed Traffic


British Steam Index Vol.5 - Mixed Traffic

Ref: RF556D


Both branch and mainline needed engines that were equally competent on freight and passenger duties and it was these needs that called on locomotives that became classified as Mixed Traffic. Despite being regarded by many as too much of a compromise, these engines appeared on British Railways in vast numbers creating impressive performance and capability statistics, Classics such as Great Western Halls, LMS Class 5s are included.

British Steam Index Vol.6 - Industrial


British Steam Index Vol.6 - Industrial

Ref: RF552D


Private networks to small sidings adjacent to mainlines. During their active years they were usually ignored by enthusiasts, but in preservation interest in industrial engines has grown considerably, and a large number are in active service on preserved lines, some of which owe their very existence to former collieries, docks or other industries. Enjoy the cream of this fascinating and often overlooked world of industrial engines in this programme!

British Steam Index Vol.7 - Passenger Tanks


British Steam Index Vol.7 - Passenger Tanks

Ref: RF553D


The tank engine was first introduced in the middle of the nineteenth century as a means of avoiding running round and turning engines at either end of the journey. The concept caught on and tank engines on passenger trains varied from the diminutive Great Western 0-4-2 tanks on Branch line work to the impressive BR Standard class 4s, which were basically small express engines fitted with side tanks. See them both - with many types in between - in this programme.

British Steam Index Vol.8 - Narrow Gauge


British Steam Index Vol.8 - Narrow Gauge

Ref: RF551D


Narrow Gauge railways have a unique charm. Some were built to serve mines or quarries, some were built to serve isolated communities where the cost of a full size line could not be justified. Some built recently - exist purely for pleasure. All have one thing in common - they're fun! See a wide selection of lines - and the steam locomotives which work them - in this programme, the latest volume of The British Steam Index series.
