Telerail Explorer Vol. 1: Tibetan Explorer


Telerail Explorer Vol. 1: Tibetan Explorer

Ref: TR881D


Tibet and its people have for many centuries been shrouded in mystery. For many travellers this ancient mountain land with its distinctive customs and way of life came to symbolise a kind of Shangri La - remote and isolated from the rest of the world.

Until recently it was thought impossible to build a railway line over the mountainous and difficult terrain to connect Tibet with the rest of China. However, this impressive new line, which opened a whole year ahead of schedule in 2006, is already attracting a huge amount of interest from both locals, tourists and railfans.

Thanks to GW Travel an intrepid first group of Westerners were able to sample the new line to Tibet and also enjoyed the connecting journey from Beijing to Golmud by luxury train.

This is your opportunity to join the Tele Rail crew as they ride the highest line in the world and see for yourself facilities on board the brand new Chinese train.

There's also the chance to explore Lhasa, the capital of Tibet, as well as enjoying some of the most spectacular mountain scenery in the world including the world's highest lake. There's even time for a brief look at Beijing and Xian and the famous Terracotta Warriors.

- Sassari to Tempio Pausania and onto the port of Palau and the Maddalena archipelago.

- Tresnuraghes to Bosa - a wonderful line that drops sharply along wooded valleys to the sea.

- Mandas to Arbatax - at 159 kilometres the longest and most spectacular narrow gauge line.

- Also featuring an exclusive visit to the wonderful FDS museums at Monserrato and Tempio Pausania.

- Special second DVD disc 'The Gallery' featuring unique stills slide show also included at no extra cost.

Telerail Explorer Vol. 4: German Explorer


Telerail Explorer Vol. 4: German Explorer

Ref: TR884D


It was twenty years ago when the Berlin Wall came down and Tele Rail were the amongst the very first western documentary film crews to take a close look at the steam lines that were a legacy of the communist era. Now twenty years later it's a fitting time to see how these steam lines have adapted and survived.

Apart from the UK there's nowhere else in Europe that offers so much heritage railway variety as Germany. Nowadays with cheap air fares any visit to Germany - whether to authentic narrow gauge lines or for main line action is certain to be well worth while.

This useful DVD contrasts the most interesting steam operations with some more unusual modern motive power including:-

- The Rhine - this lovely scenic area is easy to reach from UK, and is well known for its magnificent scenery what's not so well known is the Drachenfels Railway and the regular narrow gauge loco hauled mixed passenger and freight service on the Brohltalbahn.

- Plandampf, and a deservedly popular German favourite - the spectacle of putting standard gauge steam on rural secondary main line train services.

- Harz winter action, contrasting the new section of re-gauged track to Quedlinburg with the magnificent and steeply graded climb to the snowy Brocken summit.

- Sauschwaenzlebahn - the 'Pig's Tail' line - with many spectacular viaducts near the Black Forest, Germany.

- Wuppertal Schwebebahn, one of the most unusual railways in the world this futuristic mono rail actually opened in 1901.

- Bad Doberan & Gohren. Baltic steam action including daily street running in the far North of Germany.

- Preanitztalbahn, a wonderful and comparatively little known narrow gauge line that operates with a real communist East German feel.

- Radebeul, Freital and Oberwiesenthal surviving Saxon steam near Dresden.

Telerail Explorer Vol. 5: New Zealand Explorer


Telerail Explorer Vol. 5: New Zealand Explorer

Ref: TR885D


From the spectacular Southern Alps to the fertile dairy farmlands of North Island New Zealand is one of the most scenic and attractive areas on the planet. Of a roughly similar land mass to the UK, but with a population of only 4 million or so New Zealand doesn't support an intense rail network. However, it is a country full of contrast, as this unique guide which features plenty of wonderful scenery including stunning aerial views of Mount Cook and coastal scenery shows.

- Trunk services:- spectacular mountain and coastal scenery, the backbone of rail freight operations on both North & South Island that together with the inter island train ferry connect the major population centres of Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin.

- Milk trains:- one of the few places in the world that it's possible to see huge daily train loads of milk is the section of line to Whareroa on North Island.

- Commuter services:- Wellington & Auckland

- Passenger services:- The Overlander & the TranzCoastal.

- Christchurch:- a historic city that's big enough to feature a daily circular tourist tram service.

- The Midland line:- freight & passenger traffic on one of the most scenic railway lines in New Zealand, including a cab ride on the famous TranzAlpine passenger connecting Christchurch & Greymouth across the formidable Southern Alps.

- Steam:- contrasting mainline steam operations and the Weka Pass railway.

- Heritage travel:- the highly popular Taieri Gorge railway plus Pacific coastal action from Dunedin to Palmerston.

If you are planning a trip to New Zealand this DVD will prove an invaluable guide to both the railways and the magnificent countryside.
