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..

Tasmanian Railways - Volume 7

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..

DQ Power Statewide BLU-RAY

The DQ class locomotives were still a regular site across Tasmania in 2017 and 2018, particular on the Melba Line with its sharp curves and steep gradients. Since their introduction to service in Tasmania during the late 1990's, they have put on quite a show with their loud exhausts and well-proportioned design. In this production, we chase the locomotives across the state, beginning at Coal Mine Bend as we watch locos 2006 and 2010 hauling a ballast train to the Brighton Transport Hub. The very next day, 2011 made an appearance on a combined paper and empty log train, and we follow it to locations such as Danby, Lowdina, Campania and Rekuna bank. 3 shots are also included of 2 locos working on the Bell Bay line with a container train, as well as another few scenes of 2011 heading around to the Boyer newsprint mill in late June 2018. But the major highlights of this production are included on the Melba Line, as we travel 4 times to see quad DQ class working the ore t..

Power of the DQ's - Part 2

Part 2 of Power of the DQ's continues the story of these veterans as they work on the mainlines in Tasmania, and also on the South Island in New Zealand as they spend there last days banking trains before withdrawal and purchase by a railway company in South Africa. As well as this, we also join the cab of loco 2011 as we travel on the southbound paper train between Powranna and the Rhyndaston tunnel in Tasmania's southern midlands during a beautiful 2006 day. In 2017 at least 3 DQ"s were put to work hauling ballast trains on the South Line and we cover them at a variety of locations including Andover, Parattah, Rhyndaston, Coal Mine Bend and much more. If this wasn't enough, we also see locos 2001 and 2002 hauling coal trains on the Fingal Line, and take a trip back to the early 2000's to see a number of lash ups which are now part of history.

Winter on Tasmanian Railways 2017

The winter of 2017 provided much action from both the mainline and the preserved network. We begin with the return of steam locomotive M4 to service at the Don River Railway following its 2 yearly boiler inspection. We present a variety of scenes taken in glorious winter conditions on both the first and second Sundays of the locos re-entry into traffic. Although the weather was beautiful for most of the time, a downpour on the second weekend made for atmospheric conditions as the loco backed off the shed. Sister M class Pacific number 5 worked shuttle trips at the Tasmanian Transport Museum for the annual Model Train Show in August. We watch M5 being prepared for traffic outside the roundhouse and follow the loco throughout the morning. We also see the museums other operational steam loco C22 working in the month of June with 2 restored mainline carriages.

Tasmanian Railways - May 2017

May 2017 saw more trips made to several parts of Tasmania to record rail operations on the Tasrail network. We begin with what would turn out to be one of the highlights of the year so far as D class number 2020 was lifted onto a low loader at East Tamar and trucked to Bendigo in Victoria where overhauling and repainting would take place. We present scenes of this fascinating procedure as well as the bogies being transferred to a separate low loader. Moving onto the mainline we cover 5 trains operating on the same day starting off with a late running 33 in the early morning light, 35 with triple headed locos in the Colebrook area, 31 on the Western Line, 3 DQ's on the empty ore train heading south and finally DQ 2009 working the cement train with TR03.

Tasmanian Railways - Volume 4

In Volume 4 of this continuing series we look mainly at the DQ's on the Tasrail network with extensive coverage of them at work on the Fingal Line in eastern Tasmania where a shortage of TR class meant that the older locos needed to step in to keep the traffic moving to both Boyer and Railton. The newly restored Fingal Railway station is also covered around the DQ action which provided great sound climbing the steep grades in the valley. Steam loco M4 retired from service for its 2 yearly boiler inspection, and we also chase 2002 on the Derwent Valley line, and assisting a TR on train 34 which made for lovely sound and vision.

Tasmanian Railways - Volume 3

Since the release of Tasmanian Railways Volumes 1 and 2 back in 2011, so much has changed on the mainline. Most of the older classes of loco have been retired, and a brand new type known as the TR class have taken over most of the freight traffic around the state. At the time of this programme being released in February 2017, 7 of the 12 DQ class still remained in service and could be found in regular use on the Melba Line, and on works trains in other parts of the state. In Volume 3 of this continuing series we look at TR's and DQ's on the Tasrail network with double and triple headers, plus a variety of traffic which is now carried by rail.

The Heritage Steam Collection

Ever since the first steam railway in Australia opened between Melbourne and Sandridge in 1854, a huge variety of different classes operate across the country on 3 notable track gauges. Western Australia, Northern Territory, Queensland and Tasmania used 3 foot 6 or narrow gauge. New South Wales had standard gauge or 4 foot 8 and a half inches, and Victoria and South Australia shared the Irish Broad Gauge of 5 foot 3 inches. Interestingly, South Australia also used narrow gauge, and a number of locations such as Gladstone and Peterborough had triple gauge rail yards. Revenue earning steam on the mainlines finished in the 1970's, however steam still remained in industrial service with the Richmond Vale Railway at Hexham in New South Wales, which used the 2-8-2 10 class tank engines which had previously operated on the South Maitland Railways from new.
