Steam Railway Premiere Colllection Vol.1 - Mallard & the Gresley A4s (60-mins)


Steam Railway Premiere Colllection Vol.1 - Mallard & the Gresley A4s (60-mins)

Ref: TR777D


Ever since their spectacular entry into service in September 1935, the charismatic 'A4s' have been at the forefront of thousands of railfans' affections. They reigned supreme on the East Coast Main Line for more than 25 years, from the days of Gershwin through to the time of the Beatles and, because of their distinctive shape, are instantly and widely recognised.

Produced with the full co-operation of the National Railway Museum and presented by Nigel Harris, Steam Railway's Managing Editor, the fascinating story and development of Sir Nigel Gresley's famous 'A4' class is dramatically told. This exciting video features rare archive film material plus outstanding contemporary video footage highlighting the surviving 'A4s' in action on many main line rail tours and private railways. Topics include:

The design and development of the 'A4s' and the pre-Nationalisation race for streamlined dominance.

Mallard - the story of the legendary record breaker and holder of the world steam record of 126 miles per hour, achieved in July, 1938. Plus a unique view of the LNER dynamometer car used during the record breaking run.

Archive film of virtually every 'A4' in action, including their famous Indian Summer in Scotland before withdrawal.

Union of South Africa's historic return to King's Cross on Steam Railway magazine's 'Elizabethan' run in October, 1994.

Superb contemporary action shots of Union of South Africa, Sir Nigel Gresley and Mallard on rail tours and private steam railways

Steam Railway Premiere Collection Vol.2 - Evening Star & the 9Fs (60-mins)


Steam Railway Premiere Collection Vol.2 - Evening Star & the 9Fs (60-mins)

Ref: TR775D


With the last steam engine ever to be built for British Rail amongst their numbers, the class 9F heavy freight 2-10-0s were bound to achieve celebrity status right from the start. The 9Fs were the last of the new BR Standards designs and first appeared in 1954. After some initial teething problems had been ironed out, the 9Fs quickly won acclaim and went on to become the most successful of all the standard classes in fact, amongst the best of the whole long line of British steam locomotives.

The 9Fs were the most numerous of all the Standard designs, with 251 built. Using a careful blend of unique archive film and copntemporary video footage, we take a close look at the history and working life of these handsome machines, including many typical jobs the class became associated with such as the heavy consett iron ore services and Long Meg to Widnes anhydrite trains that once ran along the Settle to Carlisle line.

As well as featuring each of the restored 9Fs in action, there's an interview with David Shepherd the famous painter and owner of Black Prince.

Produced with the full co-operation of the National Railway Museum and presented by Nigel Harris, Steam Railway's Managing Editor, this informative programme is a great chance to learn about one of the most popular steam loco classes ever produced
