The Darjeeling Himalayan Railway - Tindharia to Darjeeling
V125DEVD090

The Darjeeling Himalayan Railway - Tindharia to Darjeeling

Drivers Eye View Tindharia to Darjeeling. For the first time ever, a Driver's eye view of the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway.  This famous Indian 2 foot gauge line runs for 55 miles from New Jalpaiguri in West Bengal up to Darjeeling in the foothills of the Himalayas. We ride aboard a steam charter train into its second day, starting roughly half way up the line at Tindharia. The sunny weather, coupled with state of the art cameras, provide a spectacular view of this unique hill railway. Our iconic B class steam engine climbs relentlessly through the magnificent scenery over gradients as steep as 1 in 18! Following the Hill Cart Road most of the way, we cross it dozens of times to ease the gradient or lessen a curve. We run on the very edge of the mountains, squeeze through the narrowest of ledges and pass through towns and villages to the summit of the line at 7,407 feet above sea level at Ghum. The railway is so unique and precious that it has become a UNESCO World..

DMU Tracks

100% stereo sound with pictures! TRACKS is a play on words - stereo soundtracks coupled with railway tracks. From the 1980s onwards, Video 125’s cameras have roamed the country filming our renowned Driver’s eye views. Although filmed in standard definition, the sound has always been recorded in high definition. Throughout that time we were using full broadcast quality microphones and recording equipment, giving us a unique opportunity to reproduce the sounds of first generation diesel multiple units (DMUs) going about their workaday business. As well as first generation DMUs such as the ubiquitous class 101, we see single units, 2, 3 and 4 car trains of various combinations, many hotchpotches lashed together to make up serviceable trains with a dearth of new rolling stock towards the end of BR. There are units on main lines and branch lines mainly in blue and grey and Network SouthEast livery. We’ve also included a few preserved units in green. There’s ..

French Tram Archive
V125AD357

French Tram Archive

Unique film capturing the end of an era… Just like the UK, tram systems in France reached a peak between the wars. However, only 24 systems out of a grand total of 130 were still running in the 1950s. This motivated a number of amateur cine cameramen to travel the length and breadth of the country to record them for posterity before they closed. What they filmed are remarkable in many ways and very different to those in Great Britain. For example, many routes ran far out of town, often on single track serving small outlying villages. All vehicles were single deck often pulling trailers. Some were interurban such as from Marseille to Aix-en-Provence. The archive was compiled by French video company Les Editions du Cabri and first released in France on DVD. It includes cine film taken from the 1930s to the 1970s complete with soundtrack. The video also features a number of fascinating old postcards. Systems featured include Marseille, Lyon, Toulouse, Dijon, Lille, Font..

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. Ma..

Electric Trains to Manchester - Volume 1 & 2 Combo
TRRFETTM

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. We’ll take you..

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..

Drivers 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.

The Old Gotthard Tunnel Route
V125DEVD085

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..

Behind the Scenes with Tasrail

In this special DVD programme, we feature 3 segments with a difference as go behind the scenes to see another side of Tasrail's operations. We first visit the new wheel lathe facility in Burnie to see it in full operation, and also the recently constructed battery powered locomotive which performs a demonstration run in the shed at Burnie. In early 2018 we travel to the Fingal Valley to follow the procedure of loading the coal train which provides a look at a very rarely seen part of railway operations. For the third and final chapter we head back to the Fingal Valley and finish with a cab ride onboard TR05 as we travel from Avoca to Fingal and return. On this trip we pass scenic locations such as Rostrevor, Ormley and Tullochgorum. This is a programme that you don't want to miss! ..

Railwaymen of the TGR

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 locomotive d..

The period between December 2017 and September 2018 saw much action from around Tasmania, with quad DQ class working on the Melba Line, and track machines on maintenance duties on the Western and South Line. 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. Throughout March and April 2018 we followed it on trains 36 and 34, plus the coal train on the Fingal Line. DQ 2001 makes a rare appearance at the..
