**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. BR standards are represented by Britannia pacifics, Standard class 4 and 5 4-6-0s plus 9F 2-10-0s (including ex-Crosti boilered). There is even the odd ex-LMS interloper and an ex-LNER J39 0-6-0!


The archive film is mostly in colour An authentic sound track has been added along with a commentary to complement this further nostalgic look at the last years of Great Western steam.

**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.

The fourth part of in our “Steam Still at Work” series of films which feature the steam scene both at home and overseas after the end of main line steam on British Railways in 1968. The series continues until the “Return to Steam” tours on BR in October 1971.


We begin by visiting Woodham's vast scrap yard of over 200 locomotives at Barry Docks in South Wales, followed by lineside at Blea Moor on 11th.August 1968 to witness the passing of the last BR steam train, “The Fifteen Guinea Special”. Then to the solemn lines of dead and withdrawn locomotives at the former BR steam depot at Carnforth. All was not lost here as a lease had been obtained lighting a preservation era spark which would transform the site into “Steamtown Carnforth” in subsequent years.


Next we visit the Keighley & Worth Valley and the Severn Valley lines in their very early preservation days. Quite a contrast to today!


Pockets of industrial steam still existed and we find “The Lady Armaghdale” and “Isabel” working for ICI near Manchester before preservation. The NCB was the largest user of steam locomotives nationally after 1968 and we travel to Widdrington Colliery where the one-time 'J94' No. 68078 is seen at work.


Flying Scotsman” made a final trip along the East Coast Main Line, complete with its two tenders, in August 1969 before heading to Liverpool for shipping to the USA. BR’s only remaining steam, the narrow gauge “Vale of Rheidol” line is visited followed by a trip around the Manchester Ship Canal system in September 1969. Steam was still active in Northern Ireland and operations are seen in 1969 including the famous spoil trains from Magheramore quarry to Belfast Lough.


We cross the Channel to France to enjoy the ruggedly handsome North American-built 141Rs at Boulogne. Plenty of steam could also be found in West Germany with the 012 4-6-2s on express passenger services (including a footplate run), heavy freight work with the class 044 2-10-0s and classes 023, 038, 050, 064, 065, and 078 on a variety of workings. A cornucopia of steam! Portugal was another favoured haunt, even including narrow-gauge 2-4-4-0 compound mallets.


Back to Blighty for a visit to Tyseley’s open day in September 1969, the LCGB 'takeover' of Bowaters paper mill system in October 1969, the Bluebell Railway, and finally to Didcot and the GWS, where ex-Wantage Tramway “Shannon” is seen in steam for the first time since 1942.


Filmed entirely in colour, a commentary plus sound track complement this nostalgic look at working steam after August 1968

The fourth in our popular electric and diesel miscellany series. Although the “classic traction” seen in this series is “modern” compared to “steam traction” it should be remembered that much of the footage is 50 years or more older having been taken during the period from the 1960s to the 1980s. Most of the scenes selected have not been previously seen. As before with these films, we have simply compiled them in no particular order and thus a few surprises will be in store as you enjoy the video.


A vast area of the country is covered from HSTs and Class 50s in the West Country, to the Midlands at Wichnor sidings, Bescot and then across to Norwich, with numerous other locations in between including Cosford and the Madeley route.


We watch high speed operations on both the East Coast Main Line (ECML) and West Coast Main Line (WCML) before moving southwards to Stonehouse Junction on the Birmingham to Bristol main line for scenes including glimpses in the signal box and a Class 14 on the nearby Nailsworth branch (closed in 1966).


A couple of rail incidents are covered at Catholme Level Crossing and near Lichfield, followed by a visit to Derby Works during the 1968 Open day.


More action is seen on the Great Western Main Line at Reading, Taplow and Acton. In London, we visit King's Cross, St Pancras and Waterloo.


Northwards again for footage around Shrewsbury which includes a couple of Crewe test trains. The reopening of Barmouth Bridge is also touched on, plus a few scenes from around the long demolished Buxton Lime Works. Manchester Victoria is also visited.


Classes covered include Brush Type 4s in both two-tone green and corporate blue liveries, English Electric Type 4s, again in green and blue plus we cover their last days in service in 1984. Blue Pullmans are seen as well as their HST successors. AC Electrics are in in action as well as Deltics at King's Cross and at speed on the main line.


Passenger and freight trains pass by, including a number of car­carriers. We see Classes 03, 08, 14, 20, 31, 33, 35, 37, 40, 44, 45, 47, 50, 52, 55, 73, 74 and virtually all the AC electric types. A couple of steam shots are added for further interest. One or two DMU/EMU scenes are included and a finally a couple of shots include the rarely seen Brake Tenders.


All the archive film is in colour and an informative commentary and authentic soundtrack has been added.
