Western Renaissance

Western Renaissance


Ref: GV119D


Price:19.99

Quantity:












This film is like no other Western video. It includes rare footage captured primarily in Devon and Cornwall by just a few enthusiasts chasing their favourite type of locomotive before time ran out in February 1977. This film carries almost entirely original soundtrack and features more than half of the class of Western locomotives.

Because of this we see it exactly as it was in those days. The programme contains captions and brief commentary but careful production ensures that the Westerns do the talking! As a result this video features a symphony of diesel hydraulic thrash!

As the title suggests, this is no ordinary video for after 25 years we can witness a Western once more where it belongs, with views of the return to the main line in 2002 of "Western Champion".

Included are not only impressive lineside shots but also views from right behind the engine. Travel with us into Cornwall with "Western Glory", over the Devon Banks with "Western Duke" and "Western Trooper", and onto the Paignton branch with "Western Pathfinder"
