Railscene the Magazine & Railtape on DVD

These are now ARCHIVE films!! The Railscene Video Magazine was produced roughly every two months and showed the news and events on British railways at the time. The first was for Autumn 1984 and the last was for November/December 1993 and they are now a historical record of the British Rail era through corporate blue, sectorisation and the last days. The rival series were (and still are still produced today) the Video Track and Steam Video series by Transport Video Publishing. However with these you have to buy two titles to cover both modern traction and preserved steam whereas the Railscene series had both on one video!

The original 40-strong series "Railscene the Magazine" is now available on DVD and will be complemented by the release of the first 30 issues of ‘Railtape’ onto DVD format in 2017.

These archive programmes show a great wealth of information on our railways since 1984 and cover a fascinating period. A few examples of the contents are listed below and full details of each programme are available on our web site or by contacting us for a printed version.

Three examples of ‘Railscene DVD magazine’ include editions number 7, 16 and 21.

Railscene No. 7 Spring 1986 – This DVD includes such items as the ‘Dutch Weekend’ where the last workings of the ex-BR EM2 electrics were operating; A feature on the stone traffic on BR; feature on the KWVR with engines at the time such as the 4F, 8F, Ivatt and Big Jim; Steam in South Africa; the Hastings unit on the Settle-Carlisle; Green Arrow and Evening Star in Scotland; Andover Open Day;

Barmouth Bridge reopening and many other news items.

Railscene No. 16 Autumn 1988 – This edition has one of the most incredible news items seen on film! As part of the Blackmore Vale Express event based at Salisbury, No. 34092 City of Wells is seen ‘racing’ to Yeovil on the down line as a Class 33 with an inspection saloon follows alongside on the up line. Sequences of the two trains as they progress around Sherborne going in the same direction, must be seen!

Other items in issue No. 16 include the Westoe colliery on South Tyneside featuring the unique NCB electric shunters – now all gone since closure in 1993. The final newspaper trains are filmed in July 1988 and Mallard on one of its anniversary specials.

Railscene No. 21 Winter 1989/90 – This DVD includes all six preserved Deltics at work on heritage railways; archive films around the UK in colour from 1965; the Western Region track recording train on-board and by the lineside; West Highland steam featuring 3442, 5305 and 44871 and many diesel classes at the time at work.

These are just three samples of the varied and historical nature of the Railscene series. Each issue is priced at £14.95

Video History of Scotland

Video History Scotland are passionate about collecting, preserving and sharing historical events, moments and places that represent Scotland's precious heritage and culture. Whether it's memories of a trip "doon the waatter" from Glasgow;s Bridge Wharf aboard the Paddle Steamer Waverley or the Duchess of Montrose or a bygone memory of a day on Loch Lomond aboard one of the once many Paddle Steamers or other ships. Revisit cherished holiday destinations in and around the River Clyde including Millport, Rothesay, Largs, Helensburgh or Dunoon. Or experience the days of steam aboard one of Scotland's once famous steam locomotive's on a journey from Glasgow to Fort William.

The range of DVD titles were exclusively written and produced by the late Colin M. Liddell who devoted a lifetime to capturing, collecting and preserving some of the most rare film footage used in these productions. Colin was a renowned cinematographer and historian whose passion and interest in film and history was recognised by so many throughout Scotland where he would often be invited to speak or share his knowledge and film archives with audiences or the press. Colin's particular favourite areas of interest included his "Lovely Valley" The Vale of Leven and the surrounding areas of Loch Lomond, Balloch, Dumbarton and Renton or his passion for steam whether it be Scottish steam locomotives or the great Clyde Paddle Steamers and other vessels once found on and around the West Coast of Scotland.

His legacy has been carried on by his son (Colin) and so we are still able to enjoy the memories of those nostalgic days!
