Power Hour 6 (and a half)

Viewers of the previous five DVDs in the Power Hour series will know exactly what to expect here! For those of you who like to see – and hear – diesel locomotives being pushed to the limit on the main line, this is the DVD for you! A combination of stiff gradients, standing starts and wheelslip, combined with power handles that are wide open, produce some spectacular scenes. And there’s plenty of clag too. Filmed over a 16-year period from 2000 to 2015, this DVD comprises a mix of old and new main line traction in the 21st century and includes…

The programme is in two sections. The older material is in the traditional 4.3 picture format, and that is followed by the more recent footage in 16.9 widescreen. Although some of the workings may seem familiar to viewers of our TRACTION series, none of the footage in POWER HOUR 6 has featured in any other Locomaster DVD. We like to keep all the best ‘thrash’ material for this series!
