Vol.142 - Along Southern Lines Part 1 (60-mins) (Released 15th.January 2009)

Ref: BR142D


An archive video film of many types of Southern locomotives on various lines of the Southern Region. The South Western Division was the last to survive with steam traction up to the Summer of 1967. There is ample coverage of these lines from Waterloo to Basingstoke during a period from 1960 to 1967.

The South Eastern Division lost most of its steam in 1962 but Folkestone is seen when its harbour branch was still worked by steam traction albeit by Western pannier tanks. In this Division Tonbridge, Westerham, Gravesend, Gillingham and the Allhallows branch are also seen. Lydd to New Romney with the last DMUs. The famous Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch line is also visited.

Many specials in the last days of steam on the Waterloo to Basingstoke line are covered, with visiting Eastern and Scottish locos included.

The usual Bulleid pacifics are seen in quantity alongside Schools, King Arthurs, S15s, moguls and pannier tanks.

Nearly all the material is in colour and the film has an extensively researched commentary with an authentic sound track.

Following on from our earlier Volume 69 "The Withered Arm", this volume features more footage of the Southern Lines west of Exeter.


We start with scenes along the SR main line to Exeter Central including railtours with 60022 Mallard, T9 No.120 and BR Standard Tanks on the "Exeter Flyer" then travel along the North Devon line to Barnstaple and Ilfracombe. A stop is made at at Braunton to see the Mortehoe bankers at work with a variety of passing trains before arriving at Ilfracombe for views of the station and the harbour. A paddleboat ferry departs for Bristol!


Back to Barnstaple with a Hymek and glimpses of Rolles Quay Sidings, Pottingham swing bridge, Town station with its erstwhile L & B platform, the Taw viaduct (with steam footage) and into Barnstaple for scenes around the station and the shed. After closure we see footage of the now derelict viaduct, Town station and swing bridge.


There is extensive coverage of the Torrington line with Class 25s & 31s on milk, china clay and special trains plus the comings & goings at Fremington Quay and Instow including many scenes inside the signal box. Yes, even seeing the signalman going off duty in his 1970s Ford Capri!. At Bideford and Torrington we see activities in both steam and diesel eras, with Ivatt 2-6-2Ts, SR Moguls and Classes 22 & 25.


Next, along the ex-SR Devon main line with diesel hauled ballast trains at Yeoford & Sampford Courtenay, before arriving at Okehampton for steam with SR Moguls, Ivatt 2MTs and BR Standard 2-6-4Ts plus later diesel scenes.


We travel on to the North Cornwall line at Meldon Junction and at Halwill Junction visit the Bude branch with steam plus green DMUs. Then onwards to Wadebridge for extensive footage of T9s, ex-GWR 1369 panniers, BR standard tanks, Bulleid Pacifics and the Beattie tanks at Wenford Bridge and Pencarrow Woods before arriving at Padstow.


Finally, we return to the ex-SR main line at Bere Alston for a trip along the Gunnislake branch to Callington with Ivatt 2-6-2Ts and close with steam scenes at Exeter Central, including Class Z bankers, and at Salisbury. A veritable feast for the Southern Enthusiast!

**IN STOCK** THE VIDEO/DVD THAT HAS JUST ARRIVED AT WOLVERTON RAIL IS.... :-)


This volume features steam traction in the Somerset and Dorset areas of the West Country and in particular the famous Somerset & Dorset Joint Railway from Bath to Bournemouth with both normal service and special trains.


We start with a glimpse of the ex-SR West of England main line before witnessing Bulleid Pacifics and BR Standards at Bournemouth Central and Weymouth. This is followed by a trip along the line visiting locations such as Radipole Halt, Upwey Wishing Well Halt, Bincombe Tunnel and Dorchester South. Spot the ex-LMS Black 5 interloper!


Next, we visit the ex-GWR Bridport branch from Maiden Newton with a number of specials along the branch featuring Ivatt 2-6-2 tanks using both black & white and colour footage. By contrast, there is a DMU trip along the line shortly before it closed in 1975.


In earlier times, we visit the Somerset & Dorset line with black & white scenes of Bath Green Park shed including ex-SD&JR 2-8-0 7Fs. Back to colour and footage of Bath Green Park station and views inside its famous train shed. We now travel along the line through Devonshire and Combe Down tunnels, Midford, Wellow and Radstock to see coal trains hauled by 7F 2-8-0s. On past Chilcompton, we climb to Masbury Summit, Shepton Mallet and Evercreech Junction. There are scenes of the line to Glastonbury, at Burnham-on-Sea, and Highbridge and Bridgwater.


Travelling south from Evercreech, we pass through Wincanton and arrive at Templecombe for the junction with the ex-SR main line. A busy scene here, with a variety of trains and engines in and around the station, shed and junction. Even 92220 "Evening Star" is on a normal service train! We continue south to Stalbridge, Sturminster, Shillingstone, Blandford Forum and Bailey Gate joining the main line at Broadstone Jct. before continuing to Poole and arriving at Bournemouth West.


Finally, there are views of the LCGB S & D farewell special with two unrebuilt Bulleids, some final scenes from the S&DJR line and we close with a classic S&DJR 7F under the train shed at Bath Green Park station.


Steam traction featured includes many Standards, Bulleid Pacifics, 4Fs, 7Fs, Black 5s, 9Fs, and Panniers plus Collett 0-6-0s on the Glastonbury line including the now preserved 3205.


All the archive film used is mainly in colour but some black & white footage is used. An authentic soundtrack has been added along with an extensively researched commentary.

The Southern always seemed to be the happy friendly holiday line. Their public relations officer the great Sir John Elliot’s slogan was the sun always came soonest to the Southern. This volume begins at Waterloo Station where many happy parents weighed down with suitcases, and their excited children carrying their buckets and spades started their holidays.


We see rebuilt Bulleid pacifics depart from Waterloo. The prestigious Bournemouth Belle is seen passing through Clapham Junction and Common. One of Maunsell’s famous Schools is seen at Woking. A brief visit across country to Guildford where an N Class mogul departs on a train. We quickly return to the Bournemouth main line and several rebuilt pacifics are seen at SouthamptonCentral. This is followed by a nice sequence at Millbrook. The Redbridge causeway is crossed and a Maunsell S15, Standards and Bulleids are seen at Totton station. A trip is taken down the Fawley branch behind two USA tanks. An earlier special sees an H16 tank at Fawley.


Rejoining the mainline, we have a footplate trip into the New Forest complete with views of it’s famous ponies. There are scenes at Lyndhurst Road and shots of Bulleids at Brockenhurst. The Lymington branch train is seen arriving and departing. Standard Class 4, Ivatt and M7 tanks are seen on the branch. There is even a trip behind a Q1 on a railtour. Travelling further west we see Bulleids and Standards climbing Sway bank. A nice long sequence of film at Bournemouth Central station and shed follows, with many engines seen including Lord Nelsons and M7s. Next stop is the now closed line to Bournemouth West. The severely curved platform at Poole sees plenty of activity.


The rarely filmed lines to the west of Poole and the Oxbow bridge are seen, before we head for Wareham and the Swanage branch which is fortunately beautifully preserved. Standard and Ivatt tanks are seen on the line, along with specials top and tailed by Bulleids and Standard 4s. The sun did not always shine and we see some shots taken in the pouring rain. On departing the branch and Wareham, several shots are seen across Ashley Heath before arriving at the old Dorchester South Station with its separate up and down platforms and its complex movements before the station was rebuilt. Bulleids reign supremely here. A train is then boarded for the journey to Weymouth.


All the archive film is in colour apart from a few seconds in black & white.. An authentic soundtrack has been added along with a researched commentary.

Most of the Southern’s train journeys to the West commenced at Waterloo where we see a Merchant Navy pacific backing on to its train before departing. Double headed MNs depart from Weymouth followed by a Standard Class 5 at Wareham. There is Bulleid action at Seaton Jct and Barnstaple plus an N Class 2-6-0 at Okehampton.


At Bournemouth Central we see S&DJR 2-8-0s, Bulleid pacifics, Standard Class 5s and Ivatt class 2 tanks. Adding to this variety blue A4 "Sir Nigel Gresley" is on a rail tour racing through the New Forest. Scenes at Brockenhurst feature both Standard tender and tank engines. A Channel Island Bulleid hauled boat train hurries through Beaulieu Road. More Bulleid Pacifics are seen at Southampton Central and Eastleigh with one rushing through Shawford in wintery conditions. Some excellent shots of Bulleids and Standard class 4 4-6-0s at Battledown Flyover are followed by footage at Basingstoke with Bulleids roaring through and departing.


Along the Salisbury line we stop at Andover for some nice Bulleid action, as well as an S15 and a Standard class 5 plus a GWR Manor, Hall and an S&D 2-8-0 on enthusiasts specials. At Salisbury we are just in time to see the crack Atlantic Coast Express arrive. More Bulleid pacifics along with an N Class mogul. A USA tank has the melancholy task of shunting lines of withdrawn engines. Passing Salisbury shed, and Templecombe we reach Yeovil Junction to see a Maunsell King Arthur, an M7 on a push-pull and a Merchant Navy.


Next a trip to Yeovil Town on a Western auto train before returning to the Junction for more Bulleid action. After passing through Crewkerne and Chard, where a pair of S15s are seen, we arrive at Axminster. We travel the Lyme Regis branch, first behind the legendary 0415 tanks and then by two Ivatt class 2 tanks on the LCGB East Devon Railtour. Next to Seaton Junction for a trip to Seaton behind an M7 tank before returning to the Junction to see S15's, Pacifics and a 64XX pannier . Onwards to Sidmouth for M7, Standard Class 3 and an Ivatt class 2 plus Pannier hauled special train to Exmouth. We travel past Exmouth Junction Shed where an A4 is being serviced and arrive at Exeter Central for the ACE. A W tank is seen amongst the usual motive power.


Finally we traverse the steep gradient down towards Exeter St Davids to see two West Countries departing, then to Cowley Bridge for the Southern's Withered Arm with some nice shots of N class 2-6-0s at Eggesford, Halwill Jct. and Braunton plus an Ivatt tank at Instow.


All the archive film is in colour apart from a few sequences in black & white.. An authentic soundtrack has been added along with a researched commentary.
