THE LATEST B & R DVD TO ARRIVE AT WOLVERTON RAIL WILL BE....:-)


>>>IN STOCK 7th.NOVEMBER 2022<<<<


The first of five volumes of all new, and never previously seen, high quality cine films taken by the late Brian Parnell. Compiled in the running order of the original cine film, it forms the seventh episode to cover Southern steam within our popular “Miscellany” series and includes footage across Kent, Surrey, Sussex, Hampshire and Dorset.


We begin at Oxted with the “H” Class push-pull service to Tunbridge Wells West. Other locations along this route include Hever and the junction station at Groombridge. At Upper Waringham we see passenger trains in action plus the local freight service shunting the yard followed by steam activity in and around Norward Junction engine shed. At Three Bridges, Motor Set 618 is coupled to an “H” Class tank ready for the East Grinstead auto train.


Then to the area in and around Brighton during 1962 and 1963 for plenty of steam action with a bonus of seeing the “Lancing Belle” double headed at Hove on two occasions during August 1962.


Redhill became the SR Central Division’s principle steam depot at the end of 1963. It’s allocation of locomotives included 21 Standard Class 4 2-6-4Ts. A number of visits are made to this busy station as well as around Tonbridge, Eastbourne, Polegate, Hailsham and Hellingly stations.


Next we visit the LSWR main line from London with many scenes of Waterloo, Nine Elms Shed, Clapham Junction, Wimbledon, Raynes Par, Surbiton, Woking and Basingstoke. Plus some excellent footage of the “Bournemouth Belle” including some taken from parallel running services.


A route covered in some detail is the picturesque line along the southern scarp of the North Downs from Redhill to Reigate, Betchworth, Gomshall & Shere and Guildford. Here there is a wealth of steam hauled passenger and freight trains and even a BRCW Type 3 (the later Class 33) hauling a cement train. And coverage of the Central Division’s 1964 “Visitor of the Year” surprise at Canklow: ex-LNER B1 No.61313 (allocated to Rotherham) on a passenger service at Reigate! Other locations visited are the Hayling Island branch, Brockenhurst, Bournemouth Central, Bournemouth West and Swanage.


Motive power featured includes (in no particular order) ex-SR Bulleid pacifics from the Merchant Navy, West Country and Battle of Britain classes, Schools 4-4-0s, Maunsell 2-6-0 N U & U1 moguls, USA tanks, Q, Q1, H, S15, M7, A1x “Terrier”, C, K, E4, E6, H16, W classes and even Beattie well tank 0298 along with ex-LMS Ivatt Class 2 2-6-2Ts. Plus BR Standard Classes 4 & 5 4-6-0, Class 4 2-6-0, Class 4 2-6-4T and Class 3 2-6-2T. And, of course, the ex-LNER B1!


This nostalgic look at the last years of Southern steam is mainly filmed between 1962 and 1965. It is entirely in colour and includes an informative commentary and an authentic sound track.

Penzance to Exeter St David’s


The route is set for our departure from platform 2 at Penzance station in Cornwall, the most western outpost of the GWR network.


This classic GWR main line is seen travelling from west to east for the first time. The route is renowned for its brilliant engineering with dozens of impressive viaducts, the infamous Devon banks, Brunel's iconic Royal Albert Bridge and the Dawlish sea wall, not to mention the superb scenery viewed from the cab of an Intercity Express Train. As well as the usual cab interiors, trackside and station shots, we follow our IET from a helicopter flying overhead.


The fascinating history of this former broad-gauge route, built by three separate companies, is in Rob Curling's narration (with a commentary-off option on disc).

Middlesborough to Whitby


Renowned as one of the most scenic railways in England, the single line branch from Middlesbrough runs over the North York Moors through the valley of the River Esk to the coastal town of Whitby. Filmed in the mid-summer sunshine from a class 156 DMU and from a helicopter flying overhead, we can enjoy the scenery at its finest.


The branch is controlled from the one remaining signal box at Nunthorpe, from where we plot the progress of our train. We see the single line token system from the signaler's point of view as well as the driver's. At Grosmont, the North York Moors steam railway converges for the last few miles to Whitby, the steam trains also being controlled from Nunthorpe 'box.


The history of the line is in the narration by Radio Three's Ian Skelly. The reversal of our train at Battersby is an example of how today's branch is formed from various different routes. Thankfully, it just about escaped the Beeching axe to enable us to travel over this classic branch line today.
