Freight 2 - The Privatisation Years


Freight 2 - The Privatisation Years

Ref: VS140D


This is the second of a two-volume set tracing the development of rail-borne freight from the British Rail era

of the early 1970s to the present day. Part One covered the nationalised operation up to the creation of the

Trainload companies; Part 2 focusses on the privatised era from 1995.

Freight operation since privatisation has certainly been colourful, with each new operator creating its own liveries. The face of British rail freight has changed drastically with the introduction of North American-built locomotives. But, in recent years. some newer companies have turned to veteran British built locos to bolster fleets. It has certainly been a fascinating period.

Some of the numerous highlights: The early EWS years when the existing loco classes had their swansong; the first moves by 66001 and its test run; the ghost locos; Freightliner’s Class 47s; 87101 on the Ford train; the introduction of Class 57/0s; a very rare shot of Freightliner’s short-lived 66521; DRS 47s on intermodal; GBRf enters the fray; Fastline 56s and a 66 on coal; Advenza scrap trains with a 47 and 57, plus a 66 on the flyash; Colas’s steady growth, from 47s to the reintroduction of Class 56; a Virgin 57/3 on the logs; 37218 on the Sellafied to Drigg working; DB Schenker’s takeover of EWS and the reintroduction of Class 60s; DCR 31s and 56s; GBRf 20s and DRS 57s on intermodal . . . and lots more. On the loco front, some 20 different diesel and electric classes appear.

Leyton garage in East London is a fascinating location. Not only is it an operating garage, the building also doubles as a mini-works for refurbishing Stagecoach London’s buses. We were allowed unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to film the work in progress. Along the way we picked up a huge amount of detail, much of which has been incorporated in the programme's informative script. Needless to say, the pictures are revealing too, and will provide you with a complete understanding of how this unique facility functions.

The programme sections:

~ General operation of the garage

~ Painting buses in the purpose-built spray booth

~ Upholstery repairs and seat replacement

~ MOT preparation, including a new upper deck windscreen for one of the Scanias

~ Body repairs

~ The Centenary Open Day 2012, with multiple ’Number Ones’ from RT1 to LT1

~ The a ‘cab ride’ on Leyton’s route 55, running from the garage to Oxford Circus in the heart of London. We paste together the really interesting sections of the route and mix them with roadside shots and cut-aways. Needless to say, we pass numerous buses on the way

~ Leyton's routes - A roadside view of all seven of the garage’s double-deck services

This DVD is a ground-breaking insight into one of the London bus scene’s most interesting locations . . . which you must not miss!

Features: Motion menus, scene selection, a "commentary off’ option
