**IN STOCK 1st.November 2019 ** THE B & R DVD THAT HAS ARRIVED AT WOLVERTON RAIL IS.... :-)


In this volume of our popular “Miscellany” series, we cover steam across the former London North Eastern (LNER) area and beyond, specializing on ex-LNER locomotives. Once again it is compiled from mostly unseen footage from a variety of different cameramen and in the order the film runs off the original cine reels.


Our journey commences at Nottingham Midland with V2 2-6-2 No.60916, a locomotive temporarily loaned to the Southern Region in 1953 to cover for the “Merchant Navy” broken axle emergency. We then visit the former GCR stations at Nottingham Victoria and Sheffield Victoria, followed by York, Beverley, Aysgarth, Barnard Castle, Staveley, Doncaster, Langwith Junction, Stainforth and Hatfield.


Next to Kings Cross station and shed, Hadley Wood, Hatfield, Welwyn (and it’s famous viaduct), Langley Junction, Hitchin, Sandy, Peterborough (and Northampton), Eye Green for Crowland (M&GN) and Stoke Bank plus an extended visit to Spalding in 1963.


Moving to the North East, visits include Darlington, Newcastle Central, Gateshead Shed, Tyne Dock Shed, Sunderland Shed, Seaton Bank (including the pinning down of brakes), Ryhope Junction and the Silsworth Colliery branch.


Scotland is well covered with steam action at Aberdeen, the shed at Ferryhill, Dundee, Perth, Dunblane, Larbert, Hawick, Edinburgh, Ayr, Girvan (goods), Muirkirk, and the branch from Lugton to Giffen.


In the late 1960s, Jim Clemens purchased a significant quantity of original 16mm offcuts and unused film from Pat Whiltehouse, all relating to the BBC “Railway Roundabout” TV programmes. Included in this source are the new engine shed at Thornaby (opened in 1958), York, two “Glens” to Fort William over the West Highland line and Inverness shed.


Most of the film was taken in the period 1959 to 1967 with an exception of the LNER Garratt hauling demonstration freight in Sheffield during March 1930. Motive power seen includes ex-LNER classes A1, A2, A3, A4 pacifics, B1, B16, K1, K2, D34, Q6, O1, O4, J11, J27, V3 and J72 plus BR standards and some WD locomotives.

The majority of the archive film is in colour and an authentic sound track has been added along with an informative commentary to complement this nostalgic look at the last years of London North Eastern steam.

**IN STOCK 3rd.October 2019 ** THE B & R DVD THAT HAS ARRIVED AT WOLVERTON RAIL IS.... :-)


The seventh volume in our popular “Miscellany” series to cover London Midland steam compiled from mostly unseen footage from a variety of different cameramen and in the order the film runs off the original cine reels. This volume mostly features the North-West of England up to the Scottish border.


Our journey starts in Carlisle with extensive coverage of the area including Kingmoor and Upperby sheds as well as near the long-closed station at Floriston, close to the Scottish border.


Next we travel south on the WCML to Shap Bank for a feast of steam action including scenes at Tebay and Oxenholme. We also cover Carnforth, Skipton, Barrow-in-Furness and Lancaster.


Then to the Fylde area, where in addition to a Clan pacific, we see the last working of a Royal Scot in the area, in 1965.


There is plenty of steam action around Preston including the town itself, Farringdon Junction, Leyland and Lostock Hall shed. Further locations also include the stations at Accrington, Wigan, Warrington, Crewe and the sheds at Edge Hill, Speke Junction, Crewe South and Bolton.


The Manchester area is covered next with locations such as Victoria station, Miles Platting Bank, Stockport Edgeley (station and shed), Heaton Mersey shed, New Mills and Chinley.


Finally we travel away from the North-West to the East Midland to visit the impressive station at Nottingham Victoria on the Great Central in 1964 along with East Leake, Mansfield, Penistone and Canklow shed plus a 9F cab ride.


The archive film is entirely in colour and the majority was taken in the last years leading up to the end of steam in 1968. Motive power includes BR standard Britannia and Clan pacifics, Standard Class 5 & 4 4-6-0s, Class 2 2-6-0s, 9F 2-10-0s and Austerity 2-8-0s, ex-LMS Black 5s, 8Fs, 4Fs, 2-6-4Ts, ex-MR dock tanks, Jinties, Class 2 & 4 Ivatts, Duchesses, Jubilees, Royal Scots and Patriots.

The Ivo Peters Collection Vol. 6 - Ironstone Lines

The Ivo Peters Collection Vol. 6 - Ironstone Lines

17.50

**IN STOCK 12th.December 2019 **


Ironstone Lines of the East Midlands - Ivo Peters' love of railways was widespread. Not only did he cover the famous main lines and well-know minor railways in his 16mm colour cine film collection, but he also delved into the realms of industrial steam where fascinating small and no-so-small engines performed the vital tasks of British industry.


Probably one of the least known areas was that of the Ironstone districts (such as Northamptonshire) where some of the most delightful and attractive industrial railways of the whole country ran along the edges of fields, through small woods and the heart of the countryside to the connecting lines with Brritish Railways.


This is the first visit to the Iron Lines in the Ivo Peters Collection covering an area from Oxfordshire in the west to Lincolnshire in the east. They had a charm of their own, known only a to a few. Here we see a great variety from the narrow gauge at Kettering to the standard gauge at Wroxton (sometimes known simply as "O.I") which also boasted double track, signals and signal boxes.


Lines covered from 1961 to 1969 are:

Originally released in 1988, this volume has been totally remastered i.e. the pictorial material has now been prepared from the original 1" tape, transferred to digital betacam and then remastered. Some minor picture and sound editing has taken place to enhance this very popular volume in our series.

**IN STOCK 9th.December 2019 ** THE B & R DVD THAT HAS ARRIVED AT WOLVERTON RAIL IS.... :-)


As well as satisfying their passion for steam in the British Isles, enthusiasts sought it out in other ways with many making their way into Europe in search of steam.


In the summer of 1962, the late Brian Lockey visited Sweden and Finland on the Railway Correspondence & Travel Society (RCTS) rail tour of Scandinavia. Then in the autumn of 1970 Brian visited Denmark, this time with the Railway Enthusiasts Club (REC). Brian's films make up the majority of this volume of Scandinavian Railway Memories.


The Swedish visit includes wooden-bodied jackshaft electric D Class 1C1 locomotives, a giant 0-10-0 originally from the Kiruna far north iron ore line, the Tomteboda Railway Museum plus Sweden's largest railway exhibition of 1962. Visits are also made to Falun, Hagalund shed, Ludvika, and Kristianstad shed. Sweden's largest private railway is seen at Eskilstuna, the TJOJ iron-ore line, where the Traffic Manager and Chief Engineer took the party around. The last steamship built in Scandinavia (and now-preserved SS “Bore”) takes the tour from Stockholm onwards to Turku.


There is excellent coverage of Finnish steam, but starts with an Hr12 (now Dr12) Co-Co diesel. Helsinki shed was visited and on the adjacent main line, there is continuous steam activity coming up the hill out of the City. Steam abounds including 0-6-0T, 0-6-2T, 4-6-0, 4-6-2, 2-8-0, 2-8-2, 2-8-2T, 0-10-0T and 2-10-0 classes. The Tr1 2-8-2s and Hrl1 4-6-2s built up to 1957 are real beauties and include bar frames plus interchangeable boilers. Wood-burners are also seen, complete with spark-arresting chimneys.


The visit to Denmark includes one of the 'P' class Atlantics, single and double chimney 'E' class Pacifics, a visit to Fredericia shed, a trip on the World's oldest steam paddle steamer, and haulage of standard-gauge stock by a narrow-gauge locomotive. Modem traction includes 'Lyntog’ inter-city units and East German 175s on the Berlin service.


Trams and trolleybuses are not forgotten. Some Scandinavian steam locomotives found a later home in the UK and visits are made to see them, including filming for the James Bond film 'Octopussy'. Finally there are some 'Railway Roundabout-type' 16mm offcuts and unused film of Finnish steam purchased from Pat Whitehouse by Jim Clemens.

The Berks & Hants Line

The Berks & Hants Line

Exeter St David’s to London Paddington.

We join a brand new class 802 IET (Intercity Express Train) upon arrival at Exeter St David's station en route from Plymouth to London. Our train is formed of 10 coaches and calls at Tiverton Parkway and Taunton before branching off onto the so-called Berks and Hants route, a series of disparate lines connected together to form a shorter and more direct route from the South West to the Capital.


Our train runs non-stop for over 100 miles from Taunton to Reading, only then do we join the original GWR main line into London, having switched from diesel to electric power and travelling at speeds of up to 125 miles per hour.


This cross-country scenic line was filmed during the summer of 2019. There's a great deal of interesting history to the route, only opened as a through line in 1906 with the completion of the last section of new track from Cogload Junction to Castle Cary.


Now is your chance to see this sinuous line as the driver does.
