The Berks & Hants

Drivers Eye View We join a brand new class 802 IET (Intercity Express Train) upon arrival at Exeter St David's station en route from Plymouth to London. Our train is formed of 10 coaches and calls at Tiverton Parkway and Taunton before branching off onto the so-called Berks and Hants route, a series of disparate lines connected together to form a shorter and more direct route from the South West to the Capital.Our train runs non-stop for over 100 miles from Taunton to Reading, only then do we join the original GWR main line into London, having switched from diesel to electric power and travelling at speeds of up to 125 miles per hour.This cross-country scenic line was filmed during the summer of 2019. There's a great deal of interesting history to the route, only opened as a through line in 1906 with the completion of the last section of new track from Cogload Junction to Castle Cary.Now is your chance to see this sinuous line as the driver does. ..

Underground Tracks

Long before the invention of YouTube and smartphones, Video 125 cameras were out and about filming the London Underground for our Driver’s eye view videos. Although mainly filmed in standard definition, the sound was a different matter. 100% of the time we were using full broadcast television standard microphones and recording equipment. This means that long-since scrapped 1959, 1962 and 1967 tube stock on the Central, Northern and Victoria lines can still be heard in full stereo sound. The long-since scrapped A, C and D sub-surface stock on the Hammersmith & City, Circle, District and Metropolitan, lines also heavily feature in this unique video production filmed between 1988 and 2014. Not only can you relive the nostalgic sounds but you will also see the video footage too! Unpainted aluminium and mid-life refurbished stock as well as trains still in service in 2020. There are even a couple of surprises, such as the 1938 tube stock filmed on the Isle of Wight. Many sho..

Griffith Indiana

Griffith Indiana

Griffith, Indiana is a town 6 miles east of the Illinois state line and is where the Canadian National’s South Bend, Matteson, and Elsdon Subdivisions all come together. Griffith used to be one of the largest interlockings in the world.At one time 5 railroads crossed through town with the EJE having 2 lines. CN acquired the EJE in January of 2009, which ended the two railroads crossing and becoming one. The Elsdon Sub is controlled by the CSX from Chicago to Munster even though it is still owned by CN. Up until 2018, CSX was running their daily Y123 from CSX Barr Yard to Kirk Yard via Griffith until a new connection was completed from the CSX to the CN up near Kirk Yard. An average of 45 trains run daily through Griffith keeping this area busy with great railroad action!During our time of production from 2014 to 2019, the CN ran some of their rare power on local jobs in the area as Kirk Yard is good place for older units on the railroad.Anything from EJE, CN, IC, GT, and ..

Electric Trains to Manchester - Volume 1 & 2 Combo

Electric Trains to Manchester - Volume 1 & 2 Combo

Volume 1 In 1990, Altrincham celebrated 700 years of its Royal Charter. The achievements and developments of this Cheshire town were marked by both events and publications that recorded its rise to importance in the South Manchester conurbation. That growth was largely due to the coming of the railway to the town in 1849 under the control of the Manchester South Junction & Altrincham Railway Company. This programme, with archive film and historical material follows that development and, in particular, features the 1,500 volts DC pioneering electric railway system introduced in 1931. The memories of those who remember the unique features of the 'old leccies' are aired, together with tales of their introduction and demise. Engineers and enthusiasts alike recount both the first day of electric train working in May 1931, and the dramatic scenes at Altrincham some 40 years later when, as the oldest stock of its type then in use on BR tracks rattled away into the night ador..

Return of the Big Boy

In May of 2019, Union Pacific made history. Big Boy 4014, the largest steam locomotive on earth took to the main line under its own power for the first time in nearly 60 years! The restoration was just in time for the 150th anniversary of the driving of the Golden Spike at Promontory, Utah, commemorating the completion of the first transcontinental railroad in 1869. Paired with UP 844, the only steam locomotive to never be taken out of active service on a major railroad, the 4014 made its first excursion run between Cheyenne, Wyoming and Ogden, Utah in what was billed as “The Great Race to Ogden.” 7idea Productions takes you trackside for this historic event from Cheyenne to Ogden and return. Catch the 4014 climbing Sherman Hill, gliding across the Wyoming plains, and tackling the Wasatch grade. In Ogden, Utah, Union Pacific’s Spike 150 Celebration had the feeling of a rock concert as thousands of people came out to see the Big Boy for the first time...

EMDs in Minnesota's Iron Ore Country

In this show, we will cover CN's former DM&IR ore lines in northeastern Minnesota, along with a sampling of Northshore Mining and BNSF operations in the area. What draws fans to Minnesota's north woods and the shores of Lake Superior isn't just the beautiful country or the interesting iron ore operations, it's the motive power used to pull trains through this unique region. EMD is king here, and we document these fine machines as they thunder across CN's Missabe, Minntac, Iron Range, and Two Harbors Subdivisions. We also follow Northshore Mining's mainline between Silver Bay and Babbitt, Minnesota, exploring some remote areas of Minnesota's Arrowhead. You'll see NSM's older SD40-3s, as well as leased SD90MACs hauling raw taconite ore and tailings trains across the railroad. BNSF's Kelly Lake and Grand Rapids locals are also briefly covered, powered by pairs of SD40-2s With GE power slowly being equipped with straight air for ore service..

Railfanning Cajon and Tehachapi 1970-1990

Look back at a grand era that featured three class one independent roads with first and second generation power. This big time mountain style of railroading will never be seen again-but this feature brings it back for your enjoyment. Don't miss the years of the UP, Santa Fe and Southern Pacific, as they all developed the need for more locomotive power to combat the longer trains, faster schedules and heavy grades. See "E-Units" and "Centennials" when they were working in real freight and passenger service. Big Tunnel Motors and EMD SD-40 and SD-45s smoking it up on Tank Trains and giant manifests! This 1 HR and 38 Minute film has generous helpings of clean views of older freight cars and vintage trailers, after the power goes by and is a goldmine for railfans and modelers who want to see "how it was". Many trains also have multiple manned helpers and cabooses, in an era with no graffiti. Learn the story of Union Pacific's monumental que..

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.

The Old Gotthard Tunnel Route

The Old Gotthard Tunnel Route

Drivers Eye View The original Gotthard railway tunnel through the Swiss Alps, took ten years to build and cost 147 lives. It was a mammoth undertaking and required the construction of long ramps on either side totalling 85 miles. Dozens of tunnels, viaducts and bridges were necessary. The ruling gradient of 1 in 37 was deemed to be just about the maximum that the original steam locomotives could handle, even then, trains were usually double-headed and even had banking engines attached at the rear! In order even to keep to this severe gradient, the engineers had to construct a number of additional spiral tunnels to gain height, hewn out of solid rock. Our film begins at the Swiss town of Lugano, where we see the funicular that runs from the picturesque historic lakeside town up to the main line railway station. There we take a front seat in the cab of a modern Regional Express EMU for a spectacular journey. As soon as we depart, our train has to climb up and through the Monte Cene..

Railwaymen of the TGR
RMPRTGR

Railwaymen of the TGR

The history of railways in Tasmania is very comprehensive and since the first train operated in the state during the 1870's it has seen many different locomotive types constructed by a variety of builders, mostly in the United Kingdom. Working for the railways during the days of steam was not easy, with long hours and a busy schedule, crews would often be physically exhausted at the end of their shifts. In this production we follow in the footsteps of 2 locomotive enginemen who began their careers with the TGR during the 1950's. We first talk to Lance Carroll who started in 1951 and finished in the mid 1960's before moving onto Arthur Causley who began in 1955 on steam and finally retired in 1992. Many stories are told including the Tunnel near Lilydale, the North East Line with its steep gradients and sharp curves, coal trains on the Fingal, accidents and derailments throughout the state, the procedure of a fireman and eventually progressing through to becoming a ..

In this production, we begin at Ross on a cold morning as 2 TR's running in "Elephant Style" work train 35 south to Brighton. 2 days later, we located on the Western Line as DQ's step in work freight trains between Devonport and Railton, and also to Western Junction. Moving into 2018, track machines TT7 and BR3 work around the regular cement train roster as track work continues ahead. We pay a visit to Herrick to see what is left of the former terminus of the North East Line from Launceston. TasRail recently commissioned a track geometry testing wagon which would be coupled to a number of services around state.

Just Electric Trains NSW - Retro

Just Electric Trains in NSW from 1972 to 2017. This title was in response to requests, by those who wanted to relive a passenger’s eye view, of NSW electric trains. There are two discs with over two hours entertainment. Most of disc one comprises dubbed cine film from the 1970s and 1980s, then analogue video, from 1991-1993. Some early video taken in train open doorways, is initially shaky, but is retained for the impact of the noise created by the older trains. Rides include Central-Strathfield- North Sydney; Stanmore-City Circle; Lidcombe-Flemington and Clyde-Carlingford. We stop along the way to film at certain stations and Flemington Car Sidings, with still shots in 1973. The train rides, at times, cut to still pictures, giving an outline of the rolling stock history, from wooden trailers to Waratah sets and electric locomotives. The train noise is retained in the background. There is no narration. Disc Two, is filmed on video-8, Hi-8, digital, DV-Cam and compress..

The DQ class locomotives were still a regular site across Tasmania in 2017 and 2018, particular on the Melba Line with its sharp curves and steep gradients. Since their introduction to service in Tasmania during the late 1990's, they have put on quite a show with their loud exhausts and well-proportioned design. In this production, we chase the locomotives across the state, beginning at Coal Mine Bend as we watch locos 2006 and 2010 hauling a ballast train to the Brighton Transport Hub. The very next day, 2011 made an appearance on a combined paper and empty log train, and we follow it to locations such as Danby, Lowdina, Campania and Rekuna bank. 3 shots are also included of 2 locos working on the Bell Bay line with a container train, as well as another few scenes of 2011 heading around to the Boyer newsprint mill in late June 2018. But the major highlights of this production are included on the Melba Line, as we travel 4 times to see quad DQ class working the ore t..
