Edinburgh & Glasgow

Edinburgh & Glasgow

Drivers Eye View Glasgow Queen Street to Edinburgh Waverley via Falkirk High. Edinburgh Waverley to Glasgow Central via Shotts. Following the electrification and introduction of brand new class 385 electric trains on the core intercity route between Scotland’s two main cities, Video 125’s cameras filmed on board one of the ScotRail Express services running from Queen Street to Waverley via Falkirk High. One of the other five routes between the two cities runs via Shotts. We take another class 385 this time from east to west finishing at Glasgow Central. As well as the view itself,  there are plenty of runbys, shots of the driver, aerial views and even the viewpoint of the signallers in the Waverley Signalling Centre.  Paul Coia expertly narrates the detailed history of the myriad of lines in the central belt. On the disc version, you can even de-select the narration if you so wish and just listen to the stereo soundtrack. ..

Nottingham to Skegness
V125DEVD082

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..

3801 to Dubbo
TPR38D

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..

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..
