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


>>>IN STOCK 17th.JANUARY 2023<<<<


The second instalment of all new, and never previously seen, high quality cine films largely taken by the late Brian Parnell. In this volume we mostly feature the North-East of England and Scotland. Once again it is complied in the running order of the original cine film.


We begin in the North-East at Tyne Dock, a location where it was possible to see the vivid contrast between 1950s built 9F 2-10-0s and pre-grouping designed classes of locomotives. At Newcastle Central we see the classic panorama of what once was said to be the largest railway crossing in the entire world even including some 3rd rail electric action.


Further to the north time is spent at Blyth, then the largest coal exporting port in the whole of Europe, before visiting South Blyth shed, Bedlington, Bedlington' A' colliery, and Manors.


South of the Tyne, we visit Pelaw, Horden, Crimdon Dene Viaduct, Hart, and West Hartlepool (with footage of an English Electric 'Type 3' with a brake tender) before moving further south to Darlington.


Travelling back north again and into Scotland, we visit Carstairs, Dunfermline shed, Dunfermline Lower, Edinburgh Waverley, Edinburgh Princes Street, Dairy Road Shed and Cowdenbeath. Then off to Glasgow for 'Blue Train' EMUs and steam action in and around Glasgow Central.


Next, a few minutes are spent at Stirling, including the bridge over the Forth, along with a glimpse of one of the experimental 'Black 5s'. Then there is the picturesque coverage of crossing the Allan Water at Dunblane with the Cathedral in the background. Perth is well covered and includes the West Coast Postal in the hands of an A4 and numerous steam-hauled freight and passenger services.


A number of the 'Scottish Rambler' rail tours were filmed by Brian such as a 'Crab'-hauled trip around collieries in Ayrshire, A DMU journey is made between Ladybank and Dundee with good coverage of the Tay Bridge and a visit to Dundee Tay Bridge depot with film of the terminus at Dundee West just before closure. Further north we see Montrose, Kinnaber Junction, and Bridge of Dun, even joining an A4-hauled express to take us back to Perth via Forfar.


Other locations Brian visited include footage of LNER locomotives at Nine Elms, Reigate, Coulsdon North, Banbury, Lutterworth, Rugby Central, Nottingham Victoria, and Chesterfield Central.


Motive power featured includes (in no particular order) ex-LNER AI, A2, A3, A4 Pacifics, V2, B1, Q6, J27, J26, J37, J39, L1 classes, ex-LMS Crabs, Fairburn 2-6-4Ts, Ivatt 4MT 2-6-0s and Stanier Black 5s. Also BR Standard Class Britannia Pacifics, Class 5 4-6-0s, Class 4 2-6-4Ts, Class 2 2-6-0 78000s, WD 2-8-0s and 9F 2-10-0s. Plus the odd 'Deltic, Clayton Type 1, EE Type 3 and BRCW Type 2 diesels. Even Glasgow 'Blue Train' electrics and a Tyne 3rd rail EMU put in an appearance!


This nostalgic look at the last years of steam in these areas was mainly filmed between 1963 and 1966. It is entirely in colour and includes an informative commentary and an authentic sound track.
