New Horizons Vol. 1 - Irish Railways (50-mins)


New Horizons Vol. 1 - Irish Railways (50-mins)

Ref: TR809D


This film looks at Ireland's rail system and features the passenger services. When this production was made, were nearly all loco-hauled. The broad gauge system boasts many miles of single track main line, still controlled by traditional semaphore signals. Well maintained and attractive rural stations contrast with the ornate and busy stations at Dublin, while the whole network boasts a distinctive and nostalgic character.

  • We see the contrasts of the magnificent coastal scenery as seen from the cab of a Dublin to Rosslare express as it journeys south. Highlights along the route include Bray Head, and the five miles per hour inter city main line along the quay side at Wexford. There's also a visit behind the scenes to the fascinating and busy Inchicore works where Ireland's loco fleet is maintained.
  • Present traffic flows on the Dublin to Belfast corridor, which is at the moment being upgraded, are examined. Also featured are suburban services in Northern Ireland and Dublin, as well as the highly successful DART service.
  • Main line steam specials, expertly organised by the Railway Preservation Society of Ireland are a regular feature of the Irish calendar. We take the opportunity to watch ex Dublin & South Eastern K2 loco number 461 steam from Dublin across Ireland towards Westport on the west coast.
  • There is also a visit to the headquarters of the RPSI at Whitehead, in Northern Ireland. Other features include the Cork to Dublin main line, as well as the Cobh, Youghal, Sligo and Ballina branch lines.
  • Also highlighted are the main freight flows.

New Horizons Vol. 3 - Russia (90-mins)


New Horizons Vol. 3 - Russia (90-mins)

Ref: TR815D


Until fairly recently much of Russia was closed to Western visitors and consequentially the vast majority of the huge railway network, particularly away from the main lines, has remained unexplored. Since the break up of the Soviet Union and the railway network into independent units, the chance has arisen for the first Western railway entrepreneurs to sample some of the worlds most intensively used railway networks.

While in theory it's possible to travel independently to most parts of the former USSR, in practice there are formidable obstacles to overcome - not least the language and lack of reliable internal air flights. Fortunately G W Travel, which specialises in Russian rail tours, has been able to overcome these problems.

In this unique programme we join Nigel Harris for the trip of a lifetime. During the course of a 3,000 kilometre ten day tour - hauled exclusively by Russian steam loco's- through the beautiful Russian Caucasus and Black Sea regions, Nigel is able to give the viewer an expert insight into Russian railways.

As well as a close look at the wide variety of steam locomotives used on the tour, this superbly filmed programme also features an extensive look at everyday traffic in this busy part of Russia, highlighting both freight and passenger trains throughout the Caucasus.

There's also a contrasting look at many stations each complete with their own exotic platform life that is now so common in Russia.

This video includes magnificent main line steam action and station/town visits to the following principle locations:-

  • Tikhoretsk, Mineralnye-Vody, Armavir, Pyatigorsk, Kislovodsk, Tuapse, Sochi, Adler, Krasnodar, Krymsk, Kavkaz.
  • Also featured are these equally interesting branch lines:- Zheleznovodsk, Apsheronsk, Guamsky Canyon, Novorossiysk.
  • Steam classes featured:- E, FD, SO, L, LV, Su, P36 also the following modern traction classes:- TE3, VL80, ER2, TEM2, VL8, 2TE 10M, CHS4T.

New Horizons Vol. 6 - China Part 1 (90-mins)


New Horizons Vol. 6 - China Part 1 (90-mins)

Ref: TR825D


Due to the tremendous significance of the current Chinese rail scene TeleRail are pleased to announce that we will be producing several programmes featuring China. These will combine to produce an unprecedented in depth guide to what is undoubtedly the most important and least explored national rail network in the world.

What is now the largest communist country in the world is seeing an unprecedented growth in rail traffic flows - thanks mainly to a booming domestic economy that skilfully combines western market forces with communism. Infact, such has been the enormous growth of rail traffic that at present there are simply not enough wagons or new locos to cope! The result is that many steam locos that undoubtedly would have otherwise been retired by now are still in daily use.

To put it quite simply, there is nowhere in the world that can still provide such a volume of spectacular main line steam action as China currently does. However, modern diesel loco's are being produced at an enormous rate, and together with further batches of electric locos change is quickly coming. This is a particularly fascinating time to visit China, with many steam sheds looking reminiscent of British depots towards the end of steam; as the diesels gradually invade the steam locos traditional domain. With distinctive scenery and steep gradients there is certainly no need for artificial 'runpasts' - this programme features 100% everyday Chinese rail action. China volume one includes:-

Tangshan locomotive works where SY steam locomotives are seen under construction and on test.

A round up of modern traction types that can be seen at work today including classes DF4, DF7, BJ, 8K, ND4, ND5,

Mainline & branchline passenger steam action with classes QJ, SY & JS.

Depot visits at Baotou and Nancha.

Mainline & branchline steam freight including Baotou to Bayan Obo, and Nancha to Hongshan.

Industrial steam is spotlighted at the huge Jalainur opencast coal pit.

There's also our first look at the most spectacular steam line in China close to the Gobi Desert in Inner Mongolia at Zhongwei, where double headed, and even occasional triple headed QJ hauled freights are featured battling their way up the newly doubled track towards Gantang.

Our second part of this most detailed look at the current Chinese rail scene includes a close look at two of the most impressive industrial locations in China; the giant steel works at Anshan and Baotou. These two huge sites both employ a huge variety of steam and more modern traction on their complex site operations. Anshan features on shed and on site JS & SY plus their unique Skoda electrics, while Baotou features JS, SY, YJ & GK1F.

There's more sensational double headed QJ steam action on the top part of the steep climb at Zhongwei around Changliushui where many locos take water and clean out their fires before the final ascent to Gantang.

There's also a contrasting look at contemporary diesel hauled freight flows up the climb at Zhongwei.

Both diesel passenger and steam hauled freight are featured at Harbin.

There's a look at two contrasting colliery lines at Xintaizi near Shenyang and the No 2 Coal mine at Tangshan featuring SY and YJ steam action.

New Horizons Vol.15 - Mediterranean Islands (90-mins)


New Horizons Vol.15 - Mediterranean Islands (90-mins)

Ref: TR791D


There can be few people who have never thought of escaping to their own private island. Now, with this unique video programme, it is possible not only to visit the island of your choice but also find plenty of rail action.

The three contrasting islands featured in this programme all still rely heavily on rail transport, offering the rare opportunity to combine a relaxing sunshine holiday visit with some very distinctive rail action. This superbly made programme, which also highlights the great variety of scenic delights on these three very different islands, includes:-

  • Sicily:- Rail ferry services from the Italian main land to Messina, including docks traffic. Standard gauge electrified freight and passenger services from Messina to Cattnia and Palemo. Also diesel, freight and passenger services from Palemo to Traptni. Main line services between Caltanissetta and Cattnia. There's also plenty of narrow gauge action featuring the famous Ferrovia Circumetnea which circles the still active volcano of Mount Etna.
  • Sardinia:- Both standard and narrow gauge lines are featured in detail on this fascinating Italian island. There are both loco hauled passenger as well as diesel unit operations and plenty of freight action to be seen on the main FS line that operates from Golfo Arancli down the length of the island to Ctgliari. Highlights include double, triple and even quadruple headed freights! Several famous Ferrovi della Sardegna narrow gauge lines, with their distinctive units, are also featured, including the line from Macomer to Nuoro which still sees a daily freight service. Also part of the still operational huge network of narrow gauge lines in the south east of the island, are explored. Also a cab ride on the FdS Nulvi to Stssari line.
  • Corsica:- The French narrow gauge Corsican railway network may not be as profuse as the other islands featured in this programme but it certainly makes up for this with plenty of scenic variety. Featured routes include Bastia to Ponte-Leccia, and Calvi to Ile-Rousse - with it's fabulous coastal scenery including beach running. There is also freight action on the mountainous main line. The network is renowned for it's many splendid viaducts including the most famous structure which was designed by Gustave Eiffel.

New Horizons Vol.16 - Spain (90-mins)


New Horizons Vol.16 - Spain (90-mins)

Ref: TR769D


Simply the most up-to-date guide to Spanish railway operations!

Spain has so much to offer in railway terms - from stunning scenery to distinctive Moorish stations, and yet is comparatively seldom featured by UK rail magazines. Away from the popular Mediterranean holiday beaches, is a very different country, of distinct cultural areas.

Ever since the first line was opened from Barcelona to Mataro in 1848 to the creation of RENFE in 1943, the system has exuded a very individual nature.

As well as freight and passenger services on the electrified broad gauge lines, we'll also be examining Talgo and diesel rural services.

There's also a chance to compare the standard gauge high speed AVE service operations with the more leisurely independent northern narrow gauge lines which serve many of the more important Atlantic coast towns.

There's action from all parts of Spain including main line & commuter services from Madrid, Barcelona, and Valencia as well as principle cross border services. Other highlights include a look around Alstom - Spain's principal builder of new motive power and preserved main line steam as we follow Garratt 282F 0421 high into the Pyrenees.

New Horizons Special - Eastern European Working Steam (90-mins)


New Horizons Special - Eastern European Working Steam (90-mins)

Ref: TR831D


  • Oberwiesenthal:- This scenic 750 millimetre gauge railway branch runs for 17 kilometres from Cranzahl, at 654 metres above sea level, to Oberwiesenthal, on the Czech border, at 892 metres - so it's a hard pull with plenty of superb Winter action.
  • Freital:- Running from Freital Hainsberg, on the outskirts of Dresden, the 750mm gauge branch to Kurort Kipsdorf first parallels the Dresden-Chemnitz main line before heading up the beautiful Rabenau valley.
  • Gorlitz:- A brief visit is made to the loco works at Gorlitz, the most easterly town in Germany right on the Polish border, where steam locos are still serviced.
  • Harz:- This is probably the best known German narrow gauge system situated a couple of hours south east of Hanover - just inside the old East German border. Its an impressive line, and the biggest narrow gauge system in Germany with up to seven engines in steam daily. Many scenic sections of this lengthy railway - its nearly 90 kilometres from end to end, are featured including spectacular Winter snow scenes.
  • Zittau:- Just a couple of hours east of Dresden in the south eastern corner of Germany is yet another 750mm gauge steam worked branch. The line divides at Bertsdorf, where on weekdays there are no fewer than 18 departures for either Oybin or Jonsdorf, including some spectacular simultaneous departures!
  • Radebeul:- Just north west of Dresden - it actually starts in the city's suburbs - is the 750mm gauge 16.5 km line from Radebeul Ost to Radeburg. The busy city of Radebeul, with its attractive trams, has a large workforce many of whom are still lucky enough to commute by steam.
  • Bad Doberan:- In the far north of Germany, on the coast near Rostock, we visit the famous Bad Doberan-Kuhlungsborn line - the renowned 'Mollie, which runs literally right along the high street of Bad Doberan. Operated by a fleet of 2-8-2Ts, the line is built to the unusual gauge of 900mm - unique today on the DB system.
  • Gohren:- Also in the far North of Germany is the steam branch, from Gohren to Putbus featuring the more common 750mm gauge. Theres plenty of steam action along the route from, Germany's second oldest seaside resort, on the island of Rugen.
  • Wolsztyn:- The last regular standard gauge steam running in Europe is featured in Poland. Theres a visit to the now famous round house, as well as spectacular main line steam passenger and freight action on the line to Poznan - as well as visit to the narrow gauge line at Sroda.
