Waterloo & City Line

The Waterloo & City Line was the second deep level underground line to open in London, opening in 1898. During its life, it has had three generations of rolling stock. In 1940, the Southern Railway replaced the original American built trains with unique tube trains that ran until 1993. It operated as part of the Southern Region of British Rail, until the formation of Network South East in 1986. In 1994, the line was taken over by London Underground, and today forms part of its network, although physically isolated from the other lines. This production has extensive cover of the 1940 built trains in service, and also the present 1992 stock in both Network South East and London Underground liveries. Also featured, are the signal box and workshops at Waterloo, and the refurbished trains in their London Underground red, being lowered into the tunnels.


Duration 33 minutes


Island Line

The Island Line on the Isle of Wight runs from Ryde Pier Head to Shanklin. It was electrified in 1967 by British Railways, and has been worked with former London Underground tube trains since, initially using pre-1938 standard stock, and, since 1991, 1938 stock. This production has extensive footage, with original sound, taken in the 1970's, when 7-car trains of standard stock were the norm. It goes on to feature the 1938 stock in Network South Eats, Dinosaur, and London Transport red liveries over the succeeding years.

Ref: JK091D


Price:19.99

Quantity:












This double album covers railway activity on the West Coast Main Line, and some of its connecting services over a period of more than 30 years.


Disk1 (67-mins): - This disc features the 1970’s and 80’s. Much of it was filmed at principal stations, and covers a wide variety of trains. Whilst electric locomotive haulage is much in evidence, many classes of diesel locos, DMU’s, EMU’s, and freight are covered, and even tube trains on the Bakerloo Line that paralleled the main line between Queen’s Park and Watford, using the DC tracks.


Apart from stations on the main route, between Euston and Glasgow,such as Crewe, Preston, and Carlysle, visits are made to Birmingham New Street, Wolverhampton, Chester, Liverpool, and Manchester Piccadilly. A major feature shows intense activity at Glasgow Central in 1988, including several classes of EMU and DMU in

Strathclyde orange livery. We also see glimpses of the APT prototypes in action.


Disk 2 (52-mins): - The story continues further into the era of sectorisation and privatisation of British Rail during the 1990’s, including the Virgin and Silverlink franchises. The highlights of a cab ride from Euston to Stafford are included. Finally, bringing the story up to date, we see the entry into service of the first of the class 334 EMU’s in the Glasgow area, and the initial introduction of Pendolino’s and Desiro’s to the West Coast Route.

The bulk of this volume was filmed between the 1970s and 1990’s, the period when the regions gave way to sectorisation. The programme starts in South Wales, when coal provided massive business for the area’s railways, mainly hauled by class 37s.


DMUs provided passenger services in the Valleys. A cab ride in a DMU from Swansea to Carmarthen is included. A brief visit to Abergavenny is followed by a visit to Bristol Temple Meads, featuring a variety of loco types, including class 33s and 45s.


A journey past Severn Tunnel Junction brings us to Newport, with a wide variety of freight and passenger trains. At Cardiff, the Valley Lines were still worked by DMUs, bearing Welsh Dragon logos. Another cab ride on one of these takes us to Pontypridd.


Our scene then jumps to Bristol in 1989. Bath Road shed is also featured. Newport and Cardiff are revisited in 1996, including a brief visit to Barry Island. To bring things more up to date, we see Cardiff in April 2016, when Pacers and class 150s were operating many local services.
