About this deal

A professional TV documentary crew intensively filmed the engine in action during her first year back on the mainline. BBFC: Release Date: 01/08/2005 Run Time: 69 minutes Languages: English Subtitles: None DVD Regions: Region 2 Formats: Pal Aspect Ratio: Full Screen 1. By the 1950s, the railway was in decline as the added flexibility of motor transport became attractive.

Wearing “The Bristolian” headboard, the King’s progress was followed by cameras at the lineside, on the footplate as well as from the air to capture the sights and sounds of a bygone era. Filmed from the locomotive cab, from over bridges and distant panoramic shots plus some remarkable shots from a close flying helicopter, it is a fascinating view of steam at work even if it is infrequent today. If the service that you require is not shown, please get in touch with us and we can quote for your desired service. Clive one of the most experienced enginemen in the country demonstrates how to fire four very different steam locomotives from lighting up in the morning and oiling the machine right through to the disposal of the engine at night. Filmed by steam enthusiasts from ITV and the BBC, using high-definition broadcast equipment to make movie-length portraits of British steam locos at work.

This DVD is the most vivid and detailed account of Clan Line ever made with highlights including a rare double-header, two identity changes and a long 1 -in-64. See how Castle class locomotive 5051 “Earl Bathurst” copes with a 75-mile an hour dash to the seaside as she stands in for 7802 “Bradley Manor” on the first of a series of Torbay Express excursions between Bristol and Kingswear. She was saved by a single minded Yorkshireman with a romantic streak who rescued it from the scrapyard in 1980 as a birthday gift for his wife. With dozens of lineside locations and aerial sequences, it's one of the most complete records of an engine ever captured on film.

The Bulleid Merchant Navy Pacific 35028 "Clan Line" wasn't their first choice, but has since proved a brilliant flagship of the surviving Southerns. Legendary steam railway locomotives such as Flying Scotsman, Mallard, Stephenson’s Rocket and City of Truro have been household names for generations and are now owned by the public. What makes this film distinctive is that the engine is festooned with numerous cameras, including footplate coverage and footage from the air, with driver Colin KerswiU providing expert guidance of the engine at work. Great dvds following the progress, mostly from the footplate but also using good lineside run - bys, mostly of a particular railtour event or events. The collection of colourful posters, postcards and other replicas is great for invoking memories in the older generation or for bringing history to life for a new audience.

Look beyond the number on the locomotive’s cabside and see something of that lost world: a world in which many thousands of dedicated men and women worked in difficult conditions to keep the freight and passenger trains moving and to keep Yorkshire at work; a world which affected the landscape of every town, village and workplace. We had a lovely day on a beautiful steam train by vintage trains all the staff were friendly and helpful from start to finish we dined in a Pullman car it is very recommended.

Their day out on the mainline included the long drag north from Warwick up Hatton Bank where they had the rare opportunity of working a preserved steam engine flat out.

In the Summer I took my family, husband myself, and one of our children who is in a wheelchair, the staff were AMAZING to us, they were so considerate, helpful. The 'Flying Scotsman' is the ultimate pictorial records of how the world's most famous express locomotive steamed triumphantly into the Millennium. Vintage Trains, the 21st century’s only charitably-controlled Train Operating Company, is back where it belongs for 2023 — at speed, on the main line.As luck would have it, the only survivor of the V2 class, “Green Arrow”, had just come back from major surgery and she came to the rescue in spectacular fashion. During the last 20 or so years of the Steam Age, Neil Davenport and his father, the late Arthur Davenport, visited many parts of the country observing and photographing the railway scene. First built by Sir Nigel Gresley, these 4-6-2 Pacific’s represented the very pinnacle of express passenger locomotives. The titles are: 'Flying Scotsman', 'City of Truro', 'Duchess of Sutherland', 'Princess Margaret Rose' and 'Super Power British Pacifics'.

In what is believed to be the most intensive coverage of a single steam railtour, a team of professional TV cameramen follow “Green Arrow” to the West Country. What the railways have gained in efficiency as people carriers - which is, after all, what they are there for — they have lost in diversity. Old and new communities alike thrived on the new accessibility and soon the railways were the arteries carrying the very life blood of the county. If there is going to be a significant delay (more than 10 working days), we will contact you and, where possible, give you an estimated dispatch time. These are the locomotives that not only shaped global transport history but steered the evolution of the modern world, shrinking continents and making rapid transit between one-time faraway places an everyday occurrence affordable to all.
