Rail Heritage - Monto
TPRHMONTO

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.

Preserved Steam in Queensland
RSPSIQ

Preserved Steam in Queensland

Same great steam footage as the VHS version with an extra 60 minutes of additional video. Queensland adopted the 3ft 6ins gauge at a time when it was barely out of the experimental stage. Debate about the best gauge, and about the suitability of narrow gauge for main lines, was still raging. Whether a narrow gauge line could ascend the Dividing Range west of Brisbane and still haul useful loads was also an open question. But, short of capital, the Queensland Government saw it as a practical way to increase railway mileage cheaply. The first line opened in 1865. By 1867 it has been extended across the Little Liverpool Range and up the Main Range to Toowoomba. But the full system was not complete until the 1920s. A 'small engine' policy was dictated by light rails and a 9 ton maximum axle load. In recent times, modernisation has brought diesel and electric traction, but some steam engines remain for excursion service. The video shows PB15 class 4-6-0, C17 4-8-0, DD17 4-6..

Pichi Richi
RSPR

Pichi Richi

The Pichi Richi Railway has a dramatic past. It is all that now remains of South Australia's never-completed North-South Transcontinental railway. After completion of the 1800 mile Overland Telegraph from Adelaide to Darwin, Adelaide's politicians turned their attention to a narrow (3ft 6in) gauge line to Darwin. But the project was overambitious, underfunded, and was captured by parochial concerns. Diverted to serve newly settled marginal lands near Quorn, the line became an expensive white elephant after crops failed and cultivation was abandoned in the 1880s and 1890s. It never extended beyond Alice Springs and has now been totally bypassed by new lines. The Pichi Richi Railway Preservation Society preserves the last remnant of the old Central Australia Railway and keeps alive the memory of South Australia's northern narrow gauge lines and their connection with Commonwealth Railways. Our video shows ex-WAGR and Silverton Tramway "W" 4-8-2s, ex-SAR "T&qu..

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. ..

Join Train Pictures on a journey capturing the sights and sounds of preserved railways. A must for any true Australian Railfan, this series brings to you the best of former steam and diesel workhorses of the Queensland Railways fleet.

Maldon Gold
RSMG

Maldon Gold

Central Victoria was honeycombed with small goldmines during the last half of the nineteenth century. As the trunk lines to Ballaarat and Bendigo were completed, a network of branch line was consructed, serving the smaller centres. The line from Castlemaine to Maldon opened in 1884 and closed in 1976. It was acquired by the Castlemaine and Maldon Railway Preservation Society, and is now marketed as the Victorian Goldfields Railway. The initial 1 km run on re-opening in 1986 was gradually extended, reaching Muckleford in 1996; the final 8 km into Castlemaine opened in 2004. It is a nearperfect example of a Victorian branch line of the late twentieth century, with steam and diesel locomotives and a selection of typical VR rollingstock. All sound used in this DVD was recorded on location, using professional-quality microphones. Sound on the final production is Dolby 2.0 (AC-3). Voice-overs are confined to stills and diagrams. There is no dubbed-in music. The voice-over commentary ca..

Camden Line

Camden Line

The video opens with exterior views of some of the historical buildings of Camden and surrounds. Included is the picturesque mansion "Camelot", and two interesting gardens, before moving on to the transport scene, with a view of coal being loaded from a motor lorry into a rail wagon at Campbelltown, around 1961. This is contrasted with coal movement and loading today, with semi- trailers along Springs Road and the Glenlea coal loader, complete with a loaded coal train of 75 tonne hoppers under the loading bin. Public passenger transport is covered next, with brief views of today's buses, the bus introduced in 1961 in competition with the train, followed by a typical passenger train towards the end of the era of the Camden line, namely a 30 class 4-6-4 tank loco hauling a single, usually empty, CCA coach. The video next takes us further back in time to 1954, when 20 class 2-6-4 tank engines were the standard motive power. We see coal trains, and passenger trains inc..

3801 to Dubbo

3801 to Dubbo

In September 1991 4-6-2 No 3801 hauled its train of six cars and a van to Dubbo and beyond, for a five day tour in what was the first time a 38 had ventured into the area. The video opens with a brief look into the past, November 1983, with shiny new Clyde GM 8111, towing a dead and partly dismantled 3801 through West Ryde on its way to Newcastle, for possible restoration. The boiler rebuild did of course take place, thus making this video possible. We begin the coverage of the Dubbo trip on Thursday 19 September 1991 near the end of electrification at Lithgow, with 3801 departing for Wallerawang, where water is taken at the picturesque station and we have a brief look at some of the facilities including remains of the goods shed and hand operated crane. Strong winds and rain then ensued, so our camera resumes on a bright and sunny Sunday 22nd at Dubbo, with an early morning start showing good steam effects in the cold air as the Pacific heads for Wellington on a shuttle trip,..
