Eurostar (118-mins)  (DVD)


Eurostar (118-mins) (DVD)

Ref: VI937D


Paris to London (Waterloo)

Service 9025 departs Gare du Nord over the classic main line through the Northern suburbs of Paris. Then the pantograph tension is increased and we enter the LGV Nord (Ligne a Grande Vitesse Nord). Travelling at top speed for over half an hour on this purpose built line, encountering gradients as steep as 1 in 40, the TVM 430 in-cab signalling system gradually reduces the speed for our one intermediate stop - at Lille Europe.

The next major feature is the Channel Tunnel itself. Here, our train is followed both in the cab and from the Euro Tunnel control centre at Folkestone.Emerging from the tunnel, we then travel over Britain's first high speed line - the Channel Tunnel Rail Link (CTRL1). After flying over Ashford International station and the River Medway, our complex train slows again for the changeover to Network Rail and the former Southern Region's third rail which will take us through the suburbs of South London and into Waterloo International.

7th.September 2007: I'm sorry but we have exhausted our last stocks of this very popular DVD and I sadly cannot obtain further supplies. I understand that the DVD will be relaunched in the future with the Waterloo section replaced by St.Pancras International.

Marseilles to Paris TGV (118-mins)  (DVD)


Marseilles to Paris TGV (118-mins) (DVD)

Ref: VI930D


Completed in June 2001, the LGV Méditerranée joined up with the LGV Rhône Alpes and the original Paris/Lyon TGV line completing the link between Marseille and Paris.

Now is your chance to see this truly amazing feat of engineering from the cab of a Duplex (double deck) TGV. The Ligne a Grande Vitesse (LGV) features dozens of massive viaducts, tunnels and earthworks cutting a swathe through the French countryside (with no expense spared) to allow for very high speed running.

Marseille vies with Lyon to be the second City of France. Having a population of 1.25 million, as well as being the gateway to the French Riviera, there is ample demand for a high speed rail service with the capital. To make the service comparable with air, a target journey time of three hours was set for the 466 mile route. This could only be achieved with an average start to stop speed of around 155 miles an hour. Our non-stop service achieves just that taking us over the longest TGV route in France whilst beginning and ending via the classic main lines into each City.

Paris Metro  Lines 5 & 6 (??-mins) (DVD)


Paris Metro Lines 5 & 6 (??-mins) (DVD)

Ref: VI917D


Paris’s integrated transport system, run by RATP, is the envy of cities throughout the world. It consists of buses, trams, regional express railways and of course the famous Paris Metro. Over a dozen lines criss cross the capital of France and arguably the most interesting are lines 5 and 6.

Line 5 is mostly in tunnel and runs on conventional steel wheels from Place d’Italie in the south for 9 miles to Bobigny Pablo Picasso in the north. The line surfaces to cross the River Seine before plunging back into tunnel to run via stations such as Bastille, Gare de’ l’est and Gare du Nord.

Line 6 is very different. Firstly it runs on rubber tyres, RATP’s preferred technology. Secondly it runs mostly overground on viaducts, reminiscent of New York’s famous elevated subway. Starting to the west of Paris at Charles de Gaulle Etoile (beneath the Arc de Triomphe) the line surfaces to cross the Seine giving a magnificent view of the Eiffel Tower. Still elevated, it then skirts round the southern suburbs of Paris via Montparnasse, popping in and out of tunnel every few miles before reaching the eastern terminus at Nation, a total distance of 8.5 miles.

English Narration by Yves Aubert

French Narration by Alain Debray

As usual, this driver’s eye view provides a fascinating insight into these lines with a historical and contemporary commentary available in both English and French (menu driven selection)
