A Video looking at variety of Hungarian narrow gauge railways, a state operated former agriculture line, some ex-forestry lines, and some industrial narrow gauge railways.

At Balatonfenyves the former Agricultural Railway was still operating over 3 branches when this DVD was filmed in 2002. An industrial railway transporting kaolin at Felsöpetény is seen in operation including both a C50 and a battery loco in operation. A brief visit is made to the forestry railways at Gemenc and at Mesztegnyö where passenger trains now for the bulk of the traffic. A large brickworks at Törökszentmiklós has a network of 500mm gauge lines, and small loco is seen moving bricks from the drying sheds to the kilns. The Budapest Children's Railway at the Hüvösvölgy terminus is visited, and also the short railway at Gyönygös, operated by the MK48 locos. Finally a further look at the timber traffic on the Csömödér Forestry Railway reprises the main feature on the first Hungary DVD. Other locations are seen during the course of the DVD.

All footage was taken in May 2002

Narrow gauge railways were used extensively in the mining and quarrying industry in this country. This video explores some of those locations in England that were using narrow gauge railways until the end of the 1990s, and in some cases are still in use.

The last regularly worked coal mine in the Forest of Dean opens the video. Hayners Bailey mine uses cable haulage to pull loaded tubs to the surface. A Simplex loco is used to haul large stone blocks underground for cutting at Rare Stone in Chilmark. The mines of Clarghyll Drift and Ayle Colliery are within a half-mile of each other, one using main and tail cable haulage, the other using Clayton Battery locos. Until the mid 1990s three mines produced fluorspar at Frazers Grove Complex and the drifts are seen in operation. Honister Slate Mine uses a single battery loco high in the mountains of the Lake District. The Battery loco of the Florence Iron Ore Mine is seen working underground. Finally the stockyard of the Berwick Drift Coal Mine owned by RJB Mining uses a couple of battery locos to move materials underground. Several other locations are also seen during the course of the video.

Even in 2003 the Polish sugar beet industry still used narrow gauge railways to transport beet, supplies for the sugar factories, and also the by-products of sugar beet processing. This DVD takes a close look at some of the railways associated with several of these sugar factories mostly of 750mm gauge.

There is comprhensive footage of the factories and rail systems at Kruszwica, Dobre, and Brzesc, filmed in October 2000. From the mid 1990s, there is brief non-digital footage of Tuczno and Znin factories, plus other locations are seen in passing. All three main classes of industrial Polish diesels are seen in action, the Lxd2 (BoBo), LYd2 (0-6-0DH), and the WLS150(Lyd1) (0-4-0DM).

By popular request, a video looking at the typical English narrow gauge systems of a few years ago. The first half of the video consists of previously unseen footage of Far Ings Tileries, Syslvasprings Watercress, Soda Crystal Works at Brunner Mond, and Cherry Orchard Lane at Butterley Building Materials.

The second half of the video incoprporates footage that had been featured on videos now not available such as the water works at Stoke Bardolf, Dukinfield, and North Bierley, and other industries such as Biwater Pipes and UES Ltd.

In August 2005 this title was re-released as a DVD, and now includes additional footage from surface systems at Bentley and Gascoine Wood collieries, and further footage on peat railways.

The Murtalbahn must be one of the more scenic but less visited of the Austrian narrow gauge systems. Maybe the only line that still typifies the 'common carrier' lines of yesteryear, still transporting freight in narrow gauge wagons.

The large BoBo diesels purchased in the 1960s take on daily freight duties comprising mostly of timber but the video captures the Krauss U11 steam loco also on freight services after a diesel failure.

Passenger services are captured using the railcars and also with the twice weekly tourist trains using steam power. The 11km preserved section of the Murtalbahn, the Taurachbahn is also captured to complete the picture of this 76km line. The video was taken in 2003.

For the first time various narrow gauge railways are recorded across the country. As the title suggests the historical standard for Russian narrow gauge was 750mm, and most of the systems reflect this. The footage was taken in May 2005.

There are still up to 14 peat railways still active in the country, and this DVD visits several of the locations. The only surviving state narrow gauge system at Panevezys is slowly being reborn as a preserved/tourist line and most of this system is seen. Also, an unusual railway serving a prison is filmed near Kaunas using an ESU type loco. During the film various other locations are seen including several broad gauge industrial locations.

Narrow Gauge at Work:- This is one of a range of quality, digitally filmed productions. The series documents the disappearing world of Europe's working narrow gauge railways.

Welsh Industrial Archive

This production includes material that had featured on now discontinued videos, as well as newer footage not seen previously, using video taken from 1992 to 2005.

Operations at numerous small coal mines, including Pentwyn No.3, Nanthir No.2, Narit-y-Cafn, Parc Level, and others, have been captured using diesel, cable, horse, and hand haulage. Activities at the last two rail worked slate mills of Maenofferen, and Abertlefenni have been filmed using battery Iocos to haul slate.

Until recent years there were two 2' 6" gauge railways at Shotton Steelworks, and both systems are seen operating with Hunslet and Hudswell Badger locos.

At Solva, a small battery loco is seen, still providing transport through a tunnel to access a sewage works on a daily basis.

Finally several visits are made to some small gold mines in mid Wales where in two instances gold ore is transported using battery locos.

In many cases 2 or even 3 visits have been made to the sites to give an insight into how the railways changed over the years.

Surpisingly few of the narrow gauge railways in Austria are actually operated by the ÖBB. This production visits the line centred at Gmünd in its last few weeks before it was closed down. Although regular excursions still continue on this railway, there is now no timetabled traffic. Both passenger and freight traffic is captured on the line at Zell am See, and the two lines radiating from StPolten; to Mariazell, and to Gresten, are seen. It includes footage of the Gresten line before it was truncated to its current length a few years ago. On each line steam power is also captured, focusing on the 399 class locos, No.399.01, No.399.06(Mh6), and No.399.04.
