Steam Loco Safari Tours Drakensberg Explorer II 2006

This three-disc set covers the 18-day steam tour to South Africa from the 21st May to 7th June 2006. The tour group lead by David Rodgers has operated enthusiasts' rail tours to the country since the mid 1990s. This year, as the name implies, a sequel to the highly successful 2005 tour was organised. Although some routes and locomotive classes were identical to those featured in 2005, there were some notable differences; in all, 11 classes of steam locomotives saw service. Krugersdorp - Magaliesburg: 12AR & 15F 4-8-2s Springs - Bethal: 12AR & 15F 4-8-2s Springs - Bethlehem - Ficksburg: 15F 4-8-2 & 25NC 4-8-4 Pietermaritzburg - Thornville: GF 4-6-2 + 2-6-4 Pietermaritzburg - Donnybrook - Creighton - Riverside: GF 4-6-2 + 2-6-4 & 19D 4-8-2 Ixopo: NGG11 2-6-0 + 0-6-2 George - Knysna line: 7A 4-8-0, 19B 4-8-2 & 24 2-8-4 George - Outeniqua: GEA 4-8-2 + 2-8-4 Camfer - Oupad: GMA 4-8-2 + 2-8-4 Snyberg - Toorwater: 19D 4-6-2 This programme covers the tour..

Song of the Rails

Sandstone Narrow Gauge Railway is South Africa newest and boldest steam preservation project, you will be amazed! Over the past five years, narrow gauge railway preservation in South Africa has been gaining new ground: fourteen kilometres of two-foot gauge track on one of the country’s biggest and most aesthetic commercial farms – Sandstone Estates. With the Great Maluti Mountains presiding, and their rugged foothills giving narrow gauge engineering the topography it likes best, the Sandstone Narrow Gauge Railway is Africa’s newest and boldest steam preservation project. In this video, we explore the history of the railway and its stable of locomotives: we join the Sandstone drive to locate and give sanctuary to precious railway relics; and we witness the transformation from scrap metal into gleaming, fully restored engines hauling payloads on a working commercial farm. With its combination of spectacular mountain backdrop, pristine rural environment and b..

Reefsteamers Great Trek
TPD1041

Reefsteamers Great Trek

When steam traction made way for other means of transportation, the parting was sweet sorrow for those who remember its finest moments. The steam locomotive was too grand a machine to disappear into oblivion. A wave of steam enthusiasm swept the world and South Africa was not an exception. Reefsteamers are a group of amateur volunteers that are dedicated steam preservationists. A team of enginemen reports on duty to light up the engines and make sure that the right pressure has been generated before the departure. The locomotive has been oiled, greased and polished. With the tender filled by coal and water, the locomotive is ready for the right away signal. A steam whistle breaks the silence. The train starts to move and veritable billows of smoke shoot rhythmically from the chimneys high into the sky. The golden fields speed by, bridges whip overhead and railway crossings sing their warning songs. The train is leaving Johannesburg for the wide-open spaces of Africa.  All ab..

Railway Panorama Number 4

Featuring ALCo's at work. The first main line diesel electric locomotives used in New South Wales, Australia, were designed by the American Locomotive Co., built by the Montreal Locomotive Works of Canada and powered by Alco diesel engines. These entered service from 1951 as the 40 class, and began the demise of steam locos in NSW. All later classes were built in Australia, and of the subsequent loco classes 40 to 49, the following were Alco powered:- 40, 43, 44, 45 & 48. Subsequent Alco powered classes were:- 442, and 80. This video looks at all the Alco powered locos, generally in the order in which they were introduced, however, as the majority of the locos remain in service (at the time of filming), with only the 40 and 43 classes being totally withdrawn, later scenes show all remaining classes at work. There are nostalgic scenes of the midday Newcastle Flyer with a 40 class, a pair of 44s on the Spirit Of Progress, a 48 on end-platform wooden suburban cars, a good..

Rail Victoria - The Changing 80s
TPSER022D

Rail Victoria - The Changing 80s

The 1980s brought many changes to the rail system of Victoria. In conjunction with the name change of 1983, there was a change in corporate colours for locomotives and passenger rolling stock. Through running of locomotives from South Australia and New South Wales was implemented. The removal of the Guards Van from freight trains brought about a reduction in Train Crew manning from three to two. This practice was later extended to include all passenger services. The 1980s saw changes to the rail industry of Victoria which could never be envisaged by the forefathers of years past. This 2 disc set covers only part of those turbulent years. Locomotives in the ‘Blue & Gold’ mix with colour schemes of V/Line, South Australia and New South Wales, it is all here! Truly a trip down memory lane. Digitally remastered and re-edited for DVD-R 2005. Originally sourced from VIDEO 8 and mastered to Betacam SP. (Includes a bonus disc – No narration or graphics). Highlights inc..

Rail Heritage - Monto

In 2008 the Australian Railway Historical Society - Queensland Division operated a long distance SIX-DAY steam tour from Brisbane to Monto traveling the full length of the 'Monto Loop'. Monto is unusual in that rail access is by two separate railway lines, one to the north near Gladstone and south from Mungar. The tour ran via the North Coast Line to Gladstone before heading for Monto. We follow the train on its journey up the North Coast Line as far as Gympie, where the train spends the evening at Old Gympie Station home to the Mary Valley Heritage Railway. We pick up the train again at Many Peaks and follow it the rest of the way around the loop and back to Brisbane. As with all Rail Heritage DVDs there is no narration only natural train sounds.

On The Footplate
TPD1040

On The Footplate

Before the planned departure, the fireman shovels coal into the firebox and checks the steam pressure. The driver tests the brakes for the whole of the train and also checks the motion parts.  He stares out of the window waiting for the ‘right away’ signal. He pulls the regulator handle towards him. As soon as the steam force of the engine kicks in and the train begins to move, he gently releases the handle for a slow, smooth acceleration. The engine gracefully leaves the station through the maze of points and crossings. At days end, the driver sends the whistle signal and moves the train over the ash pit for the fireman to clean the fire, take on water and a load of coal. The driver oils and greases the loco and makes sure that the train is properly serviced. On the footplate the driver is the boss, and the fireman is under his supervision. This is the closest you will ever get to driving, firing and servicing a real steam locomotive. ..

Filmed during the summer of 2006 the locations covered include Grandchester, Laidley, Helidon, Murphys Creek and Spring Bluff. The Westlander operation is the sole remaining passenger service from Brisbane to Charleville. Occasionally the train runs as a mixed passenger and freight service.The eastbound service is seen here as this is the only time you can film the service during daylight hours on this stretch of line. We follow the service over several consecutive days. Freight operations observed include coal, grain, molasses, livestock and containers. The opportunity was taken to fully utilize the surrounding scenery these trains run through, being as they are the bread and butter of QR's services to the Darling Downs and beyond.
