An Affair with CONNIE
HARSCONN

An Affair with CONNIE

This award winning documentary follows the four year restoration of Super Constellation VH-EAG from the time it was rescued from an Arizona aircraft graveyard to the time it arrived in Australia after an epic 12,000 kilometre delivery flight across the Pacific. It pays tribute to the small band of dedicated Australian men and women who, as members of the Historical Aircraft Restoration Society, overcame mountains of logistical and physical hurdles to fulfil their dream to return a Super Constellation to Australian skies for the first time in 30 years. Produced, Written & Narrated by Bob de la Lande Director of Photography David Harman. ..

Big Boy Tours the Midwest

Experience history with the “Big Boy”! For the first time since 1961, Union Pacific’s Big Boy, number 4014 ran under its own power becoming the largest operational steam locomotive in the world in 2019. Big Boy has been on display in Pomona, California since 1961, but after an extensive rebuild years in the making, the Big Boy took off from Cheyenne, Wyoming in May 2019, to Utah to take part in the celebration of the 150th Anniversary of the Golden Spike. As part of this historic event, Union Pacific took the Big Boy on a tour in July and August of 2019 in what was called “The Great Race Across the Midwest.” C. Vision Productions covers a part of this tour from Mason City, Iowa, up to the Twin Cities and Twin Ports in Minnesota, then through Wisconsin, down to Chicago and across Illinois into Iowa. 16 videographers were on hand to document this giant locomotive from both the ground and the air! As an added bonus, we also feature a chartered photo fre..

Chiltern Mainline

Drivers Eye View London Marylebone to Birmingham Moor Street. Diesel loco-hauled expresses have made a comeback… For this Driver’s eye view we travel in the cab of a class 68 hauling a rake of refurbished Mk 111 carriages marketed by Chiltern Railways as ‘Silver Trains’ Our journey starts at London’s Marylebone Station where we board the 1010 to Birmingham Moor Street. Video 125 has been here before, 30 years ago in fact, but so much has changed. Signalling, privatisation, Network Rail, Marylebone station, re-doubling of the line and even the Evergreen initiative that has seen strategic improvements to infrastructure and consequential increase in line speeds. In the last decade alone, Chiltern Railways has vastly increased the number of services over the Chiltern main line. At first, our train takes us alongside the Metropolitan and Jubilee lines and past Wembley Stadium. We then join the former Great Central/Great Western JOINT line at Northo..

Nottingham to Skegness

Drivers Eye View. Skegness is a classic seaside town on the east coast of Lincolnshire. Ever since the railway arrived in 1873 the town has been a popular holiday destination. Today’s train service is a far cry from the line’s heyday when six platforms were in use at the terminus. Just one train an hour plies the route from Nottingham these days. Filmed in the cab of a 3 car class 156/153 Sprinter combination, our limited stop train calls at Grantham for connection with the East Coast Main Line. Here the train reverses and continues via Sleaford and Boston. Most of the route is still block worked with semaphore signals controlled by manual signal boxes overseeing traditional wooden level crossing gates. The history of the line is fascinating and former Yorkshire ITV news anchor Alan Hardwick narrates. View Video Preview ..

Pendolino

Drivers Eye View Experience the thrill of riding in the cab of an iconic Pendolino tilting train, travelling over the West Coast Main Line, the UK’s busiest. We travel on  board the 1220 Virgin Trains’ London Euston to Manchester Piccadilly service running via Stoke on Trent. It’s quite amazing to see the degree of tilt from the driver’s viewpoint and how easily the class 390 takes the curves at speeds of up to 125 mph! At 2 hours and 6 minutes, our journey is shown virtually in real time. As well as the usual cab cameras, we see the eleven coach train at dozens of locations, including Milton Keynes, Stoke on Trent and Stockport stations. We even take a brief look inside the Rugby ROC (Rail Operations Centre). Narration is by BBC Radio 3’s Ian Skelly. He recalls the fascinating history of the ‘London and Birmingham’,  Britain’s first long distance intercity railway, engineered by Robert Stephenson and opened in sections from 1837. Our train then travels over the T..

Return of the Big Boy

Return of the Big Boy

In May of 2019, Union Pacific made history. Big Boy 4014, the largest steam locomotive on earth took to the main line under its own power for the first time in nearly 60 years! The restoration was just in time for the 150th anniversary of the driving of the Golden Spike at Promontory, Utah, commemorating the completion of the first transcontinental railroad in 1869. Paired with UP 844, the only steam locomotive to never be taken out of active service on a major railroad, the 4014 made its first excursion run between Cheyenne, Wyoming and Ogden, Utah in what was billed as “The Great Race to Ogden.” 7idea Productions takes you trackside for this historic event from Cheyenne to Ogden and return. Catch the 4014 climbing Sherman Hill, gliding across the Wyoming plains, and tackling the Wasatch grade. In Ogden, Utah, Union Pacific’s Spike 150 Celebration had the feeling of a rock concert as thousands of people came out to see the Big Boy for the first time...

The Old Gotthard Tunnel Route BLU-RAY
V125DEVH085

The Old Gotthard Tunnel Route BLU-RAY

Drivers Eye View The original Gotthard railway tunnel through the Swiss Alps, took ten years to build and cost 147 lives. It was a mammoth undertaking and required the construction of long ramps on either side totalling 85 miles. Dozens of tunnels, viaducts and bridges were necessary. The ruling gradient of 1 in 37 was deemed to be just about the maximum that the original steam locomotives could handle, even then, trains were usually double-headed and even had banking engines attached at the rear! In order even to keep to this severe gradient, the engineers had to construct a number of additional spiral tunnels to gain height, hewn out of solid rock. Our film begins at the Swiss town of Lugano, where we see the funicular that runs from the picturesque historic lakeside town up to the main line railway station. There we take a front seat in the cab of a modern Regional Express EMU for a spectacular journey. As soon as we depart, our train has to climb up and through the Monte Cene..

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,..

Aberdeen to Inverness
V125DEVD047

Aberdeen to Inverness

Drivers Eye View The railway between Aberdeen and Inverness was built by the Great North of Scotland Railway, the Inverness and Aberdeen Junction and the Inverness and Nairn, the former two companies meeting end on at Keith. Of the 50 stations that have come and gone over the years, ten remain open. In little over a hundred miles we encounter 16 existing, or former, rail junctions – on average one every seven miles - a remarkable testament to the commercial rivalry and duplicity of lines between the Highland and GNSR companies in the latter half of the 19th Century. Today the route is operated by First Scotrail and plied by class 158 ‘Express Sprinters’. The route is mostly of single line and features tokenless block and electric key token sections controlled from manual signal boxes with semaphore signals. This scenic route was filmed in sunny or good weather from the cab, from the trackside and from the air. Much of the fascinating history is to..

Diesel and Electric on 35mm - Volume 1 and 2

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. Most of the material was never used and was confined to the film vaults until we discovered it. One of the most remarkable shots features a class 16 in action, a class rarely photographed let alone filmed! You will also find footage of the prototype Deltic and LMS 10000 & 10001. This production gives a valuable insight into Britain’s Railways during the transition from steam to diesel / electric and will bring pleasant memories of the classes that have since been superseded, ..

Exeter to Basingstoke

Drivers Eye View The West of England line was the Southern Railway's arterial route to the West Country and as such was at one time very busy with express trains to Salisbury, Exeter and Plymouth. It was also the route of the ACE, the Atlantic Coast Express which ran from Waterloo all the way to Padstow on the North Cornish coast. Run down and rationalised in the 1960s, the West of England line became a mere shadow of its former self. Today, with privatisation, train services and passenger numbers are on the up and we can see the line from the cab of a class 159 DMU, in its recently resignalled form along with recent redoubled sections of line to improve capacity and flexibility. As well as the ride in the cab, we also see inside the signal boxes. Filmed in the summer of 2014 in association with the South West Trains, Network Rail alliance. ..

This limited-stop service shows us the whole Airport Branch, the Stockport-avoiding line built as recently as 1909 and the approach and through platforms at Manchester Piccadilly followed by the elevated section through Oxford Road. We then join the very original route surveyed and built by none other than George Stephenson. The stone block permanent way has long since gone but the history is still there to be told by former Calendar anchor Alan Hardwick. Chat Moss has gone down in railway folklore as one of George Stephenson’s greatest feats, laying a railway line across a seemingly impenetrable bog. See how little it has changed today from the cab and from a helicopter flying overhead!

Newington Navy Armament Depot
ROWNNADD

Newington Navy Armament Depot

Unknown to the great majority of the population, Since 1909 there has been a very interesting 610mm (2 ft) gauge railway quietly operating on most days at the Royal Australian Navy Armament Depot "Newington" (now named Newington Armoury) a mere 16 km West of Sydney, right next to the Olympic site, but well hidden from public view. Until recently, access by the public was virtually impossible, and it was not until 1997 that our cameras were allowed in to record the final period of the railway in use under Navy security control. The first building on the site, a powder magazine built in 1897 for the Royal Marine Garrison, is still there and in good order.  Federation came in 1901 and the site came under the control of the Commonwealth Naval Forces, followed in 1921 by the Royal Australian Navy.  We are very fortunate indeed that the Navy had strict control, keeping the base largely historically intact. Around 1996, the R.A.N. began a slow but certain move out of the d..
