Last Wisps of Indian Steam
RSLWIS

Last Wisps of Indian Steam

Indian Railways’ last metre gauge steam, Udaipur to Mavli Junction and on the Bari Sadri branch in February-March 1997, and on the Wankaner-Morvi-Maliya Miyana line, April 1999. Locos seen are standard YP Pacifics and YG class 2-8-2s. By 1997 the only Indian Railways steam operations were on metre gauge, in Western Railway territory. This DVD shows steam near Udaipur, and on the former Morvi railway. By January 1997 the sole remaining diagram at Udaipur Pratapnagar shed worked 222 Marwar Passenger from Udaipur to Mavli Junction, then the Bari Sadri branch train, and a return working of 221 Passenger in the evening. The former Morvi Railway metre gauge line from Wankaner Junction to Maliya Miyana was built in the 1880s as a 2ft 6in gauge roadside tramway, and converted to MG between 1905 and the 1930's. By April 1999, BG conversion was impending north of Dahinsara. Only sparse passenger services were being worked. ..

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. ..

Eccentric Electrics
RSEE

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.

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. ..

Darjeeling Delights
RSDD

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. All-digital, filmed in 1997. ..

Clouds Rising in the Sky

Clouds Rising in the Sky is professional film-maker Ian Walker's eyewitness record of the UNESCO inspection of the Nilgiri Railway in September 2004. Conducted by Dr. Robert Lee of the University of Western Sydney, the outcome was the listing of the NMR. Clouds shares some footage with The Ooty Rack, but offers a different perspective, including more detail of the inspection, including the workshops at Mettupalaiyam and Coonoor, plus traditional Toda tribal dances at Ooty and a visit to the railway museum at Mysore. ..

Chemin de fer de LA MURE

The CF de la Mure is metre gauge, electrified at 2400 volts DC. Built in 1888 as a coal line, it switched to tourism for its main traffic when the mines closed in 1998. The line runs from St. Georges de Commiers, 20km south of Grenoble in southern France, to La Mure, in the foothills of the French Alps. The line traverses the spectacular gorge of the river Drac on ledges, viaducts, bridges and tunnels high above the water. These are seen in footage from across the gorge and on the train. Numerous sharp curves and tunnels punctuate the route. At Loulla, the line traverses two adjacent viaducts, one above the other and parallel to it. Abandoned coal mines can be seen at la Motte d’Aveillans (where there is a mining museum) and around Le Villaret. The original (and present) terminus at La Mure is situated in pleasant Alpine scenery. An unprofitable 31km extension to Corps, opened in 1932, was  closed in 1949; a further 48km extension to&nbs..

Brazilian Gem

In Brazil’s Mina Gerais (General Mines) province, a tiny 2ft 6in gauge railway still carries tourists.  Once part of a 400km system, only 13km now remain, but the 1890s Baldwin locomotives and rolling stock are still in use, a living museum of 1890s North American narrow gauge practice.  The line links a historic town with a picturesque village, through lush countryside and rolling hills. Ten minutes of bonus footage show trourist operations on the Trem da Vale, a metre gauge line between Ouro Preto and Mariana.  It uses an ex-Argentine 2-10-2 from the famous Transandine railway between Salta (Argentina) and Socompa (Chile). All Digital – All Natural Sound. This is a 100% digital production.  The footage was filmed in 2007, using 3-CCD mini-DV cameras.  All editing has been digital.  The 16-bit sound was recorded on location using professional-quality microphones and is in Dolby 2.0 format on disk. Explanatory voice-overs are confined to ..

Austria Triple

Austria Triple

Three Austrian railways feature in this production. The Achenseebahn, a metre gauge Riggenbach 'ladder' rack line, was built in 1899. It is steam worked, carrying tourists 6.5 km from Jenbach to the Achensee, some 400m higher. The ruling grade is 6.25:1, or 16%. The locos were built by Wiener Lokomotivfabriek at Floridsdorf, near Vienna, in 1889. They have tilted boilers, and drive the rail wheels through a reduction gear with a ratio of approximately 2:1. They propel short trains of 1-3 light 4-wheel carriages. Victorian artefacts such as a hand operated traverser are still in use. The rack section is emphasised, but not to the exclusion of the scenically beautiful adhesion section. Substantial on-train footage offers the sensation of a ride on this dramatic line. The 760mm gauge Steyrtalbahn, opened in 1889 is Austria's oldest narrow-gauge railway. It once ran from Steyr to Klaus, a total of 55 route km. 17km are now operated as a tourist line, using classic Austria..

Atencion Plus

This production shows electric rail transport at work in two places which are quite close together on the western Mediterranean, but worlds apart in other ways. Mallorca's Ferrocarril de Sóller is a flourishing concern operating electric train and trams in the north-west of the island. Barcelona's Tramvia Blau is a decrepit remnant of what was once a substantial urban tramway system. The 3ft gauge Ferrocarril de Sóller links Palma de Mallorca with Sóller, 27km to the north. Opened in 1912, it was electrified at 1200V DC by Siemens in 1929. The original motor cars still haul steam era carriages. The line is steeply graded at the mountainous northern end, and includes a 3km long tunnel under the Sierra de Alfabia. Heavy tourist traffic is now the dominant source of income. A 5km, 600V DC electric tramway connects Sóller to its port. The three original 1913 motor cars are still in use. Recently, new cars have been acquired from Lisbon. In Barcelon..
