Rail Freight Today - Ireland


Rail Freight Today - Ireland

Ref: TR177D


The Rail Freight Today series was an immediate hit when it was first launched in the late 1980's. Inevitably though an incredible amount has changed over the years and this authoritative series now provides an interesting historic comparison with today’s traffic flows and loco classes.

Although less than an hour’s flight from main land Britain, Ireland's unique railway system remains relatively unknown to most modern rail enthusiasts. Not anymore!

This programme explores the fascinating variety of highly atmospheric rail freight operations to be seen across all regions of the beautiful ‘Emerald Isle’. Whether you intend visiting Ireland, or merely want to explore its scenic delights from your armchair, this video is essential viewing.

It provides an exceptional introduction and guide to a country that has been neglected by rail enthusiasts for far too long. The vast majority of the network is still single track section, boasting many attractive and well cared for rural stations at the passing loops. Motive power is drawn from a small stock list of locos that share both passenger and freight duties. While the broad gauge rail system is still largely controlled by superb semaphore signals and traditional manual signal boxes.

Produced with the full co-operation of Irish Rail, this first look at rail freight in Ireland examines all the main traffic flows, including Ore, Cement, Guinness, Gypsum, Ammonia, Fertiliser, and container traffic. Traffic movements at the central hub of Dublin are explained, and operations at Belfast are also observed.

As well as inspecting main line traffic, this volume also includes views of some highly scenic branch lines, including Kingscourt, and Foynes.

Also cab rides on freight only lines, and Ireland’s main seasonal traffic flow: sugar beet. With site visits and plenty of lineside action, it all adds up to an unsurpassed feast of pure railway nostalgia!

Rail Freight Yesterday - Looking Back


Rail Freight Yesterday - Looking Back

Ref: TR213D


Throughout the early 1980s TeleRail charted the entire rail freight operations of the UK in one of our most popular series to date - Rail Freight Today.

Due to the immense changes since privatisation, these programmes have now become a part of history. The early volumes featured Speedlink operations with many historic pick up operations, as well as many flows that have long since been lost.

Throughout the series it was possible to literally witness the decline of rail freight in the UK as BR set about rationalising it's freight network in preparation for privatisation.

As well as some traffics, many of the locos; like the class 20s and 26s are no longer to be seen in revenue earning service and of course, all of the liveries featured are all redundant.

This interesting compilation DVD features highlights from the entire series and includes action from all parts of the country, including many defunct traffics that hopefully may once again return to rail.

Deepdale coal, Garston coal, Cement from Clitheroe, Littleton colliery, Auchmuty branch, Menstrie branch, Crombie branch, Eastgate cement, Murton colliery, Hexham glue, Akeman Street, Chatham docks spoil, Channel rail ferry from Dover, Taunton Cider, Lapford, Tytherington branch, Duxford, Amlwch branch, Aberystwyth oil, Parkside colliery, Maxwelltown oil and the Burghead branch.
