The eighth volume in the well known JIM CLEMENS COLLECTION. The Great Central London Extension was the last main line in England and closed as a through route from Aylesbury to Nottingham in 1966. Jim Clemens visited the line many times in the early 1960s and this video has comprehensive coverage of the route. The video takes the form of a complete return journey from Marylebone to Nottingham Victoria through most locations along the way. Included is a brief look at the line north of Nottingham through CHESTERFIELD to the WOODHEAD route. The connections to the GC at BANBURY and AYLESBURY to PRINCES RISBOROUGH are also included. Latterly the passenger trains were in the hands of Black 5’s but over the years covered other motive power was to be seen, LNER V2. B1 and L1 classes, 9F’s on windcutters and the occasional passenger train. Britannias are also seen and GWR Halls, especially at Banbury. (Also Available on DVD)

Vol.90 - Woodhead Remembered (60-mins)  (DVD-R) (* Released October 2002 *)


Vol.90 - Woodhead Remembered (60-mins) (DVD-R) (* Released October 2002 *)

Ref: BR090D


A video for electric traction fans. Not entirely, for steam was seen occasionally on the route especially west of Dinting, But this is the story of ·the 1500v dc system across the Pennines from Sheffield to Manchester. Filmed mainly in the 1960’s, you will see the EM1’s and EM2’s as they were in their green livery as much as they were in blue towards the end. Passenger services are there throughout the route. Class 506 units are seen on the Glossop service and there is coverage of the EM2 class in Holland. All told a pretty comprehensive film of this period of electrification on an ex-LNER line. One day it may reopen again although not at 1500v dc!

Woodhead Route (60-mins)  (DVD)


Woodhead Route (60-mins) (DVD)

Ref: CP113D


A study of the unique mainline DC electric route connecting Manchester and Sheffield. The 40 mile route penetrated the Pennine barrier at Woodhead, before descending to Manchester and was Britain’s first main line to use overhead electric power when opened in 1954. Primary motive power was the1500V D.C. EM1 (Class76) and EM2 (Class 77) electric locomotives. The EM2s were sold to the Netherlands Rlys, but the CL 76 continued until the lines closure in 1981. Scenes at Sheffield (Victoria), Rotherwood, Wath, Worsborough Bank, Penistone, Dunford Bridge, Woodhead, Torside, Guide Bridge, Manchester (Piccadilly) and other locations were recorded -some with original sound - between 1954 and 1984 and provide a fascinating reminder of this magnificent route.

Network SouthEast Cab Ride Vol.2: Aylesbury-Marylebone (59-mins)  (DVD-R)


Network SouthEast Cab Ride Vol.2: Aylesbury-Marylebone (59-mins) (DVD-R)

Ref: RF547D


This is a series of cab rides filmed in the early 1990s prior to privatisation when the red, white and blue colours of Network SouthEast predominated. This second programme features the Aylesbury to Marylebone line before its total modernisation. We head for London on the Metropolitan/Great Central Joint line via Stoke Mandeville, Wendover and Great Missenden. The appearance of a centre siding for the reversal of Metropolitan line EMUs and the appearance of the conductor rails confirms we are now running on London Underground metals, with the Underground’s own signalling.

Onwards through Chalfont & Latimer, Chorley Wood and Rickmansworth, through Moor Park, Northwood Hills and North Harrow we proceed towards the capital, entering Marylebone after a brief halt outside St John’s Wood Tunnel.
