Inter-City 125 - The Need for Speed (75-mins)

Ref: TV278D


Inter-City 125 was one of British Rail’s greatest success. The travelling public was enthralled by its great looks, the power and the speed. The marketing men had a field day, with phrases like ‘the Journey Shrinker’ and passenger traffic increased on all the routes the 125 was introduced on.

This programme explores the world of the HST throughout the network from the 1970s through to the early 1990s.

It then brings the story up to date with a look at the new liveries and workings in the era of privatisation.

First Generation Traction (60-mins)

Ref: TV593D


A range of veteran motive power from the 1950s and 60s at work throughout the network.

During the 1950s and 1960s, British Railways introduced a wide range of diesel and electric traction which would, by 1968, completely displace steam from the network. Amazingly, in the 21st Centruy, some of those first generation classes are still hard at work.

In this programme, filmed mostly in 2002, we explore these classes in action on a wide range of duties.

The programme comprises:

Class 37s on both passenger and freight, including double heading on stone trains on the steep Devon bank to Whiteball.

DRS Class 20s and Fragonset Class 47s.

The Class 101 Metro Cammel Units.

Virgin and First North Western Class 47s.

Diesel & Electric Archivye Files (60-mins)

Ref: TV718D


Features a collection of footage from the '50s & '60s and includes prototypes 'Falcon', DP2 & GT3.

The late 1950s & early 1960s saw the largest influx of new designs as the British Railways Board hurried to rid themselves of steam traction. During this period a huge number of locomotives were built, some just one-off prototypes, others part of large classes.

Thankfully some far sighted individuals filmed the new diesels as well as the even newer electrics. Their efforts are showcased here and include some major rarities, including GT3 working through Neasden, DP2 on the East Coast main Line, Falcon on the ECML, 10000 and 10201 at Derby, D4 at Tring, a Class 24 in Kent, a Class 27 at Bletchley, Railbuses and a Class 15 on the Maldon Branch, a "Crompton" at York, Class 40s on the WCML, DMUs at Ballater and Bacup, Sheffield Victoria, Peaks in the Peak District, Deltics on the ECML, Westerns, Warships and Hymeks on the WR, Class 40s on Shap, Redmire Branch, D2383 on High Peak, Class 17s Claydons on freight, Pullman Multiple Units, Type 2s in Scotland, Southern EMUs, plus we take a look at the wonderful London Transport electric locomotives and even see rare footage of the National Coal Board's Tyneside electrics,

Quite simply The Diesel & Electric Archive Files is an essential addition to your collection.

Transition to TOPS (90-mins)

Diesel and Electric Traction during the period 1971 to 1975

The years after the end of steam traction are particularly fascinating. Corporate blue was now dominant & starting with some electric locomotive classes in November 1971, the entire traction fleet was renumbered; a process which took four years to complete. Then came another change in appearance, when the practice of displaying headcodes on diesel & electric locomotives was ended. In this programme we’ll explore the network in the early 1970s & this period of transition for the motive power fleet.
