London Euston to Manchester Piccadilly.

Video 125's first ever TILTING Driver’s eye view.

Experience the thrill of riding in the cab of an iconic Pendolino tilting train, travelling over the West Coast Main Line, the UK’s busiest. We travel on board the 1220 Virgin Trains’ London Euston to Manchester Piccadilly service running via Stoke on Trent. It’s quite amazing to see the degree of tilt from the driver’s viewpoint and how easily the class 390 takes the curves at speeds of up to 125 mph!

At 2 hours and 6 minutes, our journey is shown virtually in real time. As well as the usual cab cameras, we see the eleven coach train at dozens of locations, including Milton Keynes, Stoke on Trent and Stockport stations. We even take a brief look inside the Rugby ROC (Rail Operations Centre).

Narration is by BBC Radio 3’s Ian Skelly. He recalls the fascinating history of the ‘London and Birmingham’, Britain’s first long distance intercity railway, engineered by Robert Stephenson and opened in sections from 1837.

Our train then travels over the Trent Valley line before diverging at Colwich Junction onto the “Notty”, the North Staffordshire Railway, a company that remained independent for 75 years right up until the railway grouping.

**IN STOCK NOW! 5th,December 2018 ** THE B & R DVD THAT HAS ARRIVED AT WOLVERTON RAIL IS.... :-)


The fifth volume in our miscellany series to cover the former Great Western empire and beyond, Once again it is compiled from mostly previously unseen footage including some rare scenes.


We begin at Oxford before moving to Basingstoke, followed by a treat for branch line enthusiasts - a journey in July 1961 in the brake van on the daily freight train from Kidderminster to Bewdley, Cleobury Mortimer, Tenbury Wells, and Woofferton Junction.


Next to Bristol for scenes at St Anne's Park, Dr Day's Junction, Temple Meads, Kingswood Junction, the Docks, Narroways Hill Junction, Ashley Hill, Stapleton Road, Pilning, and Filton Junction.


The area around Gloucester is well covered including the 14xx-hauled push-pull services together with Lydney, Bullo Pill, Grange Court and Sharpness. Then to Banbury with 'Halls' on the through service between York and Bournemouth (the last regular express work for the GW 4-6-0s) and 0-6-2Ts going about their business.


Another treat for GW fans is a footplate trip on the 'Cathedrals Express' from Worcester to Paddington in the summer of 1963 behind the now preserved 7027 “Thornbury Castle”. This includes double-heading up Chipping Campden Bank with a 0-6-0 '2251' coupled inside and seeing the water gauge rise when passing over Charlbury Troughs.


Worcester is another location with plenty of footage including the 'Vinegar Branch (featuring a 16xx fitted with an unusually shaped spark-arresting chimney), the famous bridge over the Worcester & Birmingham Canal, Shrub Hill station and it’s environs, Norton Junction and Worcester's first station at Spetchley (closed in 1855!).


There is also coverage at Didcot, the Lickey Bank, Barnstaple Junction, Wellington Shed plus a journey along the line to Stafford. Also to Much Wenlock via Ketley, Horsehay & Dawley, Lightmoor Hall and Buildwas on the last day of the passenger service in 1962.


The time period for the majority of the film is between 1961 and 1965. Motive power includes virtually all the ex-GWR classes including: King, County, Castle, Hall, Modified Hall, Grange, Manor, 14xx, 16xx, 2251, 28xx, 41xx, 43xx, 45xx, 56xx, 57xx, 72xx and 94xx.

**IN STOCK NOW! 26th.October 2018 ** THE B & R DVD THAT HAS ARRIVED AT WOLVERTON RAIL IS.... :-)


The sixth volume in our popular “Miscellany” series to cover London Midland steam compiled from mostly unseen footage and in the order the film runs off the original cine reels. Not only do we cover London Midland engines operating in their home region but also elsewhere.


In fact, we start with a few shots of them working on the Southern Region in 1965, before visiting the Gloucester and Bristol areas for a variety of steam action, including some rare footage of ex-MR dock tank No.41537 going about it’s business, and then on to North Wales for scenes at Bangor, Menai Bridge and Bodfari.


Next we visit Rugby in January 1962 and amongst all the action, the unique Class 8 Pacific No.71000 “Duke of Gloucester” passes by. Two visits are then made to Staveley Ironworks to see the Victorian ex-MR 1F “half-cabs” at work followed by visits to Boroughbridge, Shap, Carlisle (including Canal Shed), Oxford, Hereford and Bletchley.


The “East Devon” rail tour is seen in 1965 on the Lyme Regis branch and near Exmouth, followed by the “Farewell to the Stratford-on-Avon and Midland Junction Railway” tour of April 1965, and a few months later by the “Northamptonshire Branches” brake van tour with 2-6-0 No.78028. Other tours covered in 1965 are the Warwickshire Railway Society’s “Midlander” plus the SLS’s “Midland Locomotive Requiem”.


Travelling south once again, we visit the S&DJR at Shepton Mallet, Evercreech Junction and Templecombe. Then to Stonehouse (Bristol Road), the Nailsworth branch and Coaley Junction plus the west bank of the Severn Estuary including Aylburton, Bullo Pill, Lydney and Undy.


There is extensive coverage at Banbury with steam on passenger and freight workings including the short time when Britannias were allocated there. Super “D”s are seen in the West Midlands and other places such as Crewe, Wakefield, Wrexham, Chester and Birkenhead Woodside.


Finally we visit the North-West for steam action at locations such as Farrington Junction, Preston, Carnforth, Rose Grove, Bolton and Manchester.


The archive film is almost entirely in colour and was taken in the six years leading up the end of steam in 1968. Motive power includes ex-LMS Black 5s, 8Fs, 4Fs, 2-6-4Ts, ex-MR dock tanks, Jinties, Class 2 & 4 Ivatts, Duchesses, Jubilees, Royal Scots, Patriots, Super “D”s and BR standard Britannias, 72xxx, 73xxx, 75xxx, 84xxx and 9F 2-10-0s. 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.
