Loco Hauled Vol.02 - Type 5 Freight Locos (55-mins)


Loco Hauled Vol.02 - Type 5 Freight Locos (55-mins)

Ref: TR810D


Ever since the days of steam traction different designs of rail locomotives have been classified into working groups - usually taking into account a combination of variables such as their wheel arrangement and power ratings. Probably the best known of these modern groupings are the Type 5 Freight Locomotives which comprise Class 56, 58, 59 & 60. These distinctly different looking locomotives are all expected to perform similar work:- pulling some of the heaviest rail freight trains on British Rail today.

Made with the full co-operation of BR and Foster Yeoman, this informative programme takes a close look at each class of Type 5 locomotive. The comprehensive script, initially traces the history of each class before clarifying some of the more fundamental technical details. While the unrivalled photography and direction provides an indispensable contemporary guide to the best 'hot spots' where each class can be seen at work today.

Lines and traffics featured include * Class 56:- Coal at Fiddlers Ferry, Denby, Barnetby, ECML, Aggregates, Rubbish & Steel. * Class 58:- Coal at Clipstone, Bolsover, Bennerley, Harworth, Toton, Ironbridge. * Class 59:- Aggregates at Theale, Acton, Westbury, Merehead (including cab ride). * Class 60:- Iron Ore traffic, Aggregates, Oil, & Coal services. * Passenger workings by each class.

Loco Hauled Vol.03 - Electric Locomotives (55-mins)


Loco Hauled Vol.03 - Electric Locomotives (55-mins)

Ref: TR812D


Although the British Rail network has never really benefited from a coherent long term electrification policy, lagging way behind most other European systems in this respect, the last two decades have seen main-line electrification of both the principal routes between London and Scotland. Both these routes, and also the main London to East Anglia line, are featured at a wide variety of locations.

As well as featuring the entire present range of electric locomotives in nearly every livery, this superbly made programme also includes:-

Class 81 and 85

A brief look at these interesting pioneers during their final years.

Class 86s are seen on passenger work, both on the West Coast main line and the East Anglian main line. They are also seen on a wide variety of rail freight, including Freightliner, steel, coal, parcels and Speedlink.

Class 87s are photographed working a wide cross section of traffics, including passenger and freight on the WCML. As well as the unique surviving Railfreight 87101

Class 89

A concise look at the short lived career of 'Avocet' which is seen working during early running in trials, and later on commuter trains from Kings Cross to Peterborough.

Class 90s

The newest traction in regular use on the West coast main line, are seen on a wide variety of passenger services as well as some typical rail freight flows including Freightliner, parcels and the daily European service. Also included are the special livery 'Freight connection' locomotives.

Class 91s

The pride of the East coast main line passenger service are seen at a wide variety of scenic locations, from Kings Cross to Berwick. Also featured are early trial runs and a special WCML working.

Loco Hauled Vol.04 - Class 47s (55-mins)


Loco Hauled Vol.04 - Class 47s (55-mins)

Ref: TR820D


With well over 500 locos built, the Class 47 or the Brush - Sulzer Type 4, as they were known when first constructed, are by far the largest numbered class of BR main line locomotive.

This superbly photographed and produced programme traces the history of this most widely travelled and utilised of all BR classes. Introduced over 30 years ago, these powerful and versatile locomotives have had a long and colourful career. However the early examples were not initially universally welcomed by rail enthusiasts as they certainly hastened the final demise of BR steam!

As well as including unique archive footage of early Sulzer type 4s in service, this video features all the major liveries carried by 47s over the years.

Traffic flows include oil, automotive, civil link, parcels, RFD, and passenger services. There's also an exciting cab ride on a 47/9.

A well written and informative script explains the major differences between each of the sub-classes.
