Preservation Pioneers (60-mins)


Preservation Pioneers (60-mins)

Ref: KF128D


Preservation Pioneers brings to the forefront the great achievements of those people and organisations who saved our ever decreasing fleet of locomotives in the late 1950s and early 1960s, from the scrapyard. We meet those involved and hear of the horror stories in their efforts and of the great difficulties in preservation at the time. We see archive footage from the period; before their withdrawal and during their change of ownership.

Locomotives covered in this film include, Nos. 6201 Princess Elizabeth, 34023 Blackmore Vale, 35028 Clan Line, the North Eastern Locomotive Group's fleet, those on the Bluebell Railway and at Didcot. We also hear of the many Black Fives preserved at Carnforth in those dying days of steam and of those in the National Collection, plus many others.

Front cover: LSWR Class 'T9' No. 120 was saved for the nation after withdrawal from normal service in 1962.

The Story of the Swanage Railway - updated for 2013


The Story of the Swanage Railway - updated for 2013

Ref: KF136D


'The Story of the Swanage Railway'

The full story of one of the UK’s premier steam branch lines. From the first attempts to purchase the line after closure by British Railways in 1973 to the successful purchase of the track bed and initial services out of Swanage, we look at the growth of the line through the highly motivated preservation society, The Southern Steam Trust, who has led the rebuilding of the branch line back to Corfe and Norden with a final link back to the national network again through to Furzebrook and Wareham.

Through archive films, stills, and interviews, we look at the Purbeck line from its British Rail days through to the eventual closure period of the early 1970s. Happily today we still have a Swanage branch. Our programme follows the great milestones in the preservation

project right up to date with the relaying of track through to Motala, the reconstruction works at Harmans Cross and Corfe and the many locomotives and operational high points since the start of steam operations in the early 1980s.

This epic video of 2 hours duration tells the whole story spanning 3 centuries from the 1880s through to th 21st.cenytry.

West Somerset Railway Mixed Traffic Gala  10-12th June 2016


West Somerset Railway Mixed Traffic Gala – 10-12th June 2016

Ref: KF266D


This programme is dedicated to the mostly modern traction fleet accumulated at the West Somerset Railway by the Diesel & Electric Preservation Group at Williton.

The Mixed Traffic event held in June was to see diesel hydraulics of the Hymek and Warship classes with the group’s Class 14 and two main line freight companies’ visiting locomotives – a Class 56 and a 66.

The event was enhanced with the use of the Somerset & Dorset Trust’s Ruston & Hornsby 0-4-0 shunter at Washford and it’s 7F steam locomotive No. 53808 which operated the limited steam service.

We view Warship Class No. D832 Onslaught as it carries out its final turns on the railway before returning to its proper base at the East Lancs Railway. Some stirring departures! Sadly D1010 Western Campaigner couldn’t make the event but we visited the base at Williton in 2015 and filmed it under overhaul along with close-up views of both Hymeks Nos. D7017 and 7018.

Two of the main freight operators in the UK loaned engines for the weekend. Colas Rail offered up 56 302 which was a welcome sight and was named on the Saturday at Minehead after the model railway company at Beer in Devon – Peco 70.

Class 66 757 West Somerset Railway provded by GBRf put in some powerful displays. Finally, the following weekend witnessed two GBRf Class 73/9s appear on a charter ECS move. Nos. 73 961 and 964 with their new engines installed created quite a sight at Bishops Lydeard.
