**TO BE RELEASED late September 2019 ** THE NEXT B & R DVD THAT WILL ARRIVE 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.


An authentic sound track has been added along with an informative commentary to complement this nostalgic look at the last years of London Midland steam.

We join the driver at Swansea on board a new ‘Intercity Express Trains’ 802 class with the 14.29 Swansea to London Paddington Great Western Railway service, in June 2019.

The journey takes us from Swansea, past the steel works at Port Talbot and through Bridgend before arriving at the Capital of Wales Cardiff. At Cardiff the scene is changing with the electrification of this route to London. We head through Newport before passing through the Severn Tunnel and stopping at Bristol Parkway.

At Bristol Parkway the Pantograph is raised and we speed to London through Swindon, Didcot, Reading, before arriving at London Paddington.

As usual in this series there is no distracting commentary, but all-important locations are captioned. With thanks to Great Western Railway.
