French Steam Survivors

French Steam Survivors

This DVD visits three French preserved lines, all operated by steam power. The smallest, the 60cm gauge Pithiviers-Toury line was France's first preserved railway dating back to 1966. Next we will visit the standard-gauge CF Touristique de la Vallee de la Doller in Alasace, originally an SNCF branch line it has operated as a tourist line since 1976. The third and largest is the famous Vivarais line in the Rhone valley of southern France. Preserved since 1968 it uses Mallet articulated locomotives and picturesque Billard autorails on daily services in summer. Each line is seen as an oridinary visitor would: no galah events, no touristy gimmicks and no "enthusiast specials".Included is the full content of Veterans of the Vivarais, previously available on VHS. ..

Ffestiniog and Conwy

Drivers Eye View Porthmadog - Blaenau Ffestiniog (Narrow Gauge) Blaenau Ffestiniog - Llandudno (Standard Gauge) The 13.5 mile line was of course built to carry slate and for many years worked by gravity. We travel aboard one of the famous double Fairlie steam locos - “Merddin Emrys”. The ride is typically rocky in places, as you might expect. The terrain changes from the wide open “Cob” at Porthmadog, to the fertile wooded valley in the vale of Ffestiniog, to the slate capital itself. The BR line, originally LNWR, was built in order to capitalise on the slate traffic as well. Within the first mile, on board a class 101 DMU, we pass the old mine and quarry workings and enter the 2¼ mile long Ffestiniog tunnel, Britain’s longest single mainline railway tunnel. At the end of the tunnel is the wild & remote Lledr Valley. At Betws y Coed we stop briefly to explore the Conwy Valley Railway Museum. The line then levels out an..

Enterprise - Dublin to Belfast

Enterprise - Dublin to Belfast

Drivers Eye View The Dublin to Belfast route is 113½ miles long. Our journey begins at Dublin’s Connolly Station. For the first few miles we proceed through the rapidly re-generating suburbs under the wires of the Dublin Area Rapid Transit. At Malahide we leave the wires behind us as our train runs over a magnificent causeway and alongside the sea at Skerries. Drogheda is the first stop. Back in 1845 trains could go no further until the wide River Boyne was bridged by a large viaduct completed a whole ten years later. Now you can see the box girder viaduct from the cab. The next stop is Dundalk, following which we face a similar long drag to that on the Settle and Carlisle line in England. Now we cross the border into Northern Ireland calling first at Newry. Immediately beyond the utilitarian station we cross Craigmore viaduct - Ireland’s highest. The scenery is no less spectacular as the line climbs up and through Poyntzpass. The fin..

Eccentric Electrics

Eccentric Electrics

Two most unusual electric railways survive in France’s far south. One is the 62km (39 mile) metre gauge Train Jaune, Yellow Train, or "metro of the Pyrenees". This 850V third-rail electric line runs east to west, just north of the Spanish border. Much of its tortuous route traverses rugged country, with steep grades, many tunnels and two spectacular viaducts. It terminates at a  rare triple gauge station. The second is a 4.2km rack railway to the peak of a mountain called La Rhune, right on the Spanish border in France’s Basque country. Metre gauge, equipped with Strub rack on its 1 in 4 (25%) grades, it is a rare three-phase AC survivor, with typical two-wire overhead and bow collectors. The original 1912 stock is still in use. ..

East London and District

East London and District

Drivers Eye View The East London Line is one of the smallest autonomous operations on the Underground, with its own depot at New Cross. Services alternate between the two southern termini of New Cross and New Cross Gate. Our journey on board an ‘A’ stock train begins at the former and takes us through the very oldest part of civil engineering on the underground network, Marc Brunel’s 1843 tunnel under the Thames. Peak services continue to Shoreditch which is where our journey ends. Our second journey starts at Richmond where we board a ‘D’ stock train running along the District Line’s main artery from Earl’s Court along the bottom half of the Circle line to Tower Hill, beyond which the line joins up with the Hammersmith and City line to Barking. We then continue all the way to Upminster. This most intensive route sees trains running with intervals of only two to three minutes. The journey time from Richmond to Upminster is approximately 9..

East Coastway & Marshlink

Drivers Eye View The hourly Southern service to Ashford (Kent) nowadays starts at Brighton, running fast to Eastbourne stopping only at Lewes and Polegate. At Eastbourne the 2-car class 171 diesel multiple unit reverses to continue along the coast to Hastings calling at Bexhill and St Leonards Warrior Square. Our train continues beneath the semaphore signals towards Ore where the third rail runs out. From here we run fast along the single line to the ancient town of Rye. Now we run across Romney Marsh, the flat landscape giving the line its name. After the unstaffed halt at Appledore, situated roughly one mile from the village, our train calls at one of the staggered platforms of Ham Street Station followed by the terminus at Ashford International. We then jump back to Lewes and join the driver in the cab of a 3-car class 377 electric multiple unit for the short trip down the scenic branch line to Seaford. Calling at Newhaven Town and Harbour the line becomes single and continues..

Dublin to Cork

Drivers Eye View Now you can see the route for yourself, travelling aboard a General Motors’ class 201 diesel locomotive heading the 10.00 Heuston to Cork. The train is scheduled to cover the 165 miles between the Capital and Ireland’s second city in 2 hours 50 minutes, running at speeds of up to 100 miles an hour and calling at just three intermediate stations en route, Thurles being the first, a distance of 86 miles. At the rear of our train is a streamlined driving trailer - literally the sharp end of investment in new Intercity rolling stock. Ireland’s premier line was built by the Great Southern and Western Railway in stages from 1846 and is double tracked throughout. Dubliner Henry Kelly delivers the historical and contemporary narration. Multiple cameras follow the progress of our train from within the cab, trackside, stations and even the CTC Central Traffic Control Centre at Connolly. ..

Downs West

Downs West

This DVD video production shows trains at work on the western Darling Downs in southern Queensland, between Miles and Quilpie. Brisbane was connected with Toowoomba in 1867. To the west, the rails reached Miles 1878, Roma in 1880, and Charleville in 1888. A line to Cunnamulla, serving the grazing country to the southwest, opened in 1898. From Charleville west, a line to Eromanga was projected, to join the impractical, never-constructed “Great Western Railway” from Tobermory to Camooweal. Construction stalled at Quilpie in 1917. The Quilpie line is a typical QR country branch, laid in 42lb rail and subject to speed and weight restrictions. We see the Westlander Miles-Charleville, freight workings, and a steam excursion with AC16 221A between Charleville and Quilpie. ..

Volume 1: This production features modern traction from the early years (1930s to the early 1970s). Wallow in the nostalgia of Deltics, Warships, Westerns, 25s, 40s, 45s, and the Blue Pullmans. Plus AC Electrics, 20s, 47s, & DMU’s in their early liveries. Also featured are 1st generation EMU’s going back to the 1930s. As is the case with “Steam on 35mm, The 30s, 40s & 50s” all the footage in this production originates from 35mm film shot for TV programs and feature films.

Darjeeling Delights

The DHR was the first narrow-gauge mountain railway of substantial length. It opened in 1881. It traverses the foothills of the Himalayas and is still one of the world's most exciting and scenic train rides. Height is gained by loops and zig-zags on 1 in 18 grades. The line was granted World Heritage Status in December 1999, but the condition of rollingstock and locomotives is parlous, and operation nowadays is a far cry from the smart 5hr 15min timings of the Mail during the 1940s. This footage was filmed in February 1997. At that time, it was still possible to catch many dramatic action shots. Footage includes the Batasia, Chunbati and Agony Point loops, zig-zags Nos. 1, 2 & 4, Sukhna, Rangtong, Gayabari, Mahanadi, Kurseong, Tung, Sonada, Ghumm and Darjeeling stations, plus Tindharia and Giddapahar sidings, Kurseong Bazaar, numerous other photogenic locations, and a loco in trouble.
