Along Cheshire Lines  (63-mins)


Along Cheshire Lines (63-mins)

Ref: RF519D


This programme looks in depth at the former Cheshire Lines Railway between Manchester – Stockport – Altrincham – Northwich and Chester. After an introduction the programme is divided into three watchable segments each accompanied with detailed commentary and archive film and photographs.

Cheshire Lines for Cheshire People A celebration of the whole line from Manchester to Chester and the attractions along the way. We look at rolling stock through the years and finally examine the work of the newly created Mid Cheshire Community Rail Partnership that is attracting travellers back to the railway. Cheshire Lines Freight – A look at freight through the years, not surprisingly centred mainly on Northwich.

Features recent developments. Cheshire Lines Specials – By way of a “bonus track” – a look at some of the various special trains and diversions that have visited the Cheshire Lines since 1960, culminating in extended coverage of the May 2004 Steam Shuttles between Chester and Altrincham. The accent here is on lineside action and steam. A handy DVD menu allows the viewer to navigate each chapter or watch the programme in its entirety.

Electric Trains to Manchester Vol.1


Electric Trains to Manchester Vol.1

Ref: RF572D


In 1990, Altrincham celebrated 700 years of its Royal Charter. The achievements and developments of this Cheshire town were marked by both events and publications that recorded its rise to importance in the South Manchester conurbation. That growth was largely due to the coming of the railway to the town in 1849 under the control of the Manchester South Junction & Altrincham Railway Company. This programme, with archive film and historical material follows that development and, in particular, features the 1,500 volts DC pioneering electric railway system introduced in 1931. The memories of those who remember the unique features of the 'old leccies' are aired, together with tales of their introduction and demise.

Engineers and enthusiasts alike recount both the first day of electric train working in May 1931, and the dramatic scenes at Altrincham some 40 years later when, as the oldest stock of its type then in use on BR tracks rattled away into the night adorned with commemorative headboard and wreath In l 971 the line was re-electrified to complement the national network at 25KV, and in the late 1980s is changed yet again with the introduction of the Metrolink Light Rapid Transit system. Once again, pioneering electric trains to Manchester.

'This video is well produced and must be regarded as a standard work on the line for the period covered.' (K&WVR Magazine) 'A very well produced video - superb aerial sequences.' (Railway Magazine))

Electric Trains to Manchester Vol 2 (63-mins)


Electric Trains to Manchester Vol 2 (63-mins)

Ref: RF600D


This second volume features the changeover to Metrolink services on the Bury and Altrincham lines. Prior to that changeover, sequences record the last days of the 504 units out of Bury and 304 units into Altrincham. Dramatic 'last night' scenes capture the end of an era. The programme follows the countdown to the commencement of Metrolink services, featuring the biggest upheaval in any UK city's transport system for decades. Also included is archive film of the 506 units which ran from Manchester to Glossop and Hadfield and that ended their days in December 1984. Additional rare archive film looks back at the old MSJ and AR between the 1930s and 1971, including a 1969 cab ride!

News footage covers the planning and implementation of Metrolink's Phase 1, including many of the changes, the arrival of the first unit (1001), street testing, 'first day' services in the city centre and out to Altrincham, and the official opening ceremony of the network by Her Majesty the Queen. Supporting interviews with Metrolink and PTE staff together with specially filmed sequences make this programme an ideal companion to Volume l and a concise record of Manchester's pioneering electric railway's past, present and future.

'A wealth of detail and statistics that demand repeat viewing.' (Rail)

Royal Scot Railtour


Royal Scot Railtour

Ref: RF565D


Duchess of Hamilton's epic journey Euston-Glasgow-York on the weekend of 30 November - 1 December '96 with footage from the lineside & on board the train.

On the weekend of St. Andrew’s Day 1996, 30 November - 1 December '96, the National Railway Museum’s Flagship locomotive Number 46229 Duchess of Hamilton undertook a marathon London - Glasgow - York weekend railtour, using the last two day's validity of her current mainline certificate. Railfilms’s cameras were both on board and trackside to bring you a comprehensive record of this unique event, as well as a brief look at the history of Coronation Class Pacifics and Number 46229 in particular. This programme gives you the chance to meet those people whose hard work made this journey possible, both on and off the train. Join us on the train, on the footplate, in the diner and of course at the lineside, where our numerous camera teams bring you the best of the action, including the north bound assault on the climb to Shap Summit.

The trip took an enormous amount of effort to organise, and was not without its problems, but overall, the trip was a huge success As Mel Chamberlain of Days Out observes, it was basically a case of organising what many commentators said couldn’t be done!

Mull Steam (48-mins)


Mull Steam (48-mins)

Ref: RF521D


An introduction to the Isle of Mull its unique steam, scenery and wildlife

MullRail was born out of the need to convey visitors the one and a quarter miles from Craignure Pier to Torosay Castle. To meet this objective a band of undaunted volunteers and rail enthusiasts constructed the railway through rock and bog so creating one of the most unique tourist experiences in the Inner Hebrides.

Here then, in celebration of over 20 years of operation, is the story of how the railway was built and how, with growing visitor numbers, it continues to provide this vital role today.

Meet the railway’s locomotives and in part two take a ride in the cab from Torosay to Craignure!

At Torosay Castle there is the opportunity to experience the world-renowned gardens in full spring majesty. Also savour the traditional atmosphere of a traction engine rally held in the grounds in support of the Mull & Iona Progressive Care Trust. The first event of its type ever held in the Hebrides!

The Isle of Mull offers an experience like no other in terms of scenery and natural beauty and this programme introduces the viewer to the splendours of the Isle. Take a gull’s eye view of the coastline, view wildlife, take a glimpse at Tobermory and more.
