The Derbyshire Mainline - Through the Peak District


The Derbyshire Mainline - Through the Peak District

Ref: KF133D


One of Britain's famed routes closed in 1968 and almost sadly forgotten along with the trains that ran over it, it is now spendidly recreated here in this volume.. For the first time, this video portrays one of Britain's most scenic railway lines at work, that of the former Midland Main Line through the Peak District of Derbyshire bewteen Derby and Manchester. For just over 100 years the route from Ambergate via Matlock to Chinley and Manchester was a principle main line carrying heavy freight traffic over the long, steep gradients as well as passemger trains linking London St.Pancras with Manchester and Liverpool.

Famous named trains such as "The Palatine" and Midland Pullman graced the scenic splendour of the routes which the Midland Railway promoted heavily. This is the first video to comprehensively portray the route and its trains with the viewer being taken on a journey between Derby, Buxton and Chinley with a diverse range of cine material depicting passenger and freight, plus the occassional unusual scene.

Steaming Through Wessex Vol.1


Steaming Through Wessex Vol.1

Ref: KF219D


A remarkable collection of railway films, shot by Douglas Seaton on his 16mm camera – all in colour from the 1940s through to the mid 1960s. One section of the Locomotive Exchanges in 1948 is in black & white.

These films portray a crucial period in railway history. Douglas filmed many sequences during the period of Nationalisation of the railways and has captured liveries spanning both the GWR and Southern and variations of lettering and numbering on locomotives during this change-over period. As such they represent an important record of railways in Wessex at this period.

We see fascinating views of locomotives in all liveries, including the BR experimental blue in the early 1950s. Some key scenes include:

* 1940s at Yeovil Town

* Malachite and BR brunswick green ‘King Arthur’ Class engines

* Castles and Kings on the West of England line, Kings in BR blue

* Slip coaches at Westbury

* Great Western scenes at Starcross

* Blue liveried Merchant Navy pacifics

* Yeovil Pen Mill activity

* Royal trains in and around Yeovil in 1952/3

* Weymouth Quay line with the Channel Island’s Boat Express

* Adams Radial tanks at Axminster

* Many Southern scenes at Yeovil Town and Junction

* Castles to Weymouth including banking at Yetminster

* A Star class at Devizes

* And much, much more!
