Fresh from the Unseen Steam archive, our fifth feature-length DVD presents rare, vintage footage of the golden age of steam. Carefully curated, take a step back in time and watch these forgotten films of Britain's railways brought to life in beautiful detail and expert narration. With added option to watch with or without music!
This release will include :
The Talyllyn Railway
Our first excursion is to the famous Talyllyn Railway during its Centenary year in 1965, featuring some off-railway parades as we as the "Centenarian" trains. Engine nos 1,2,4 and 6 are featured in beautiful detail.
Southern Steam in the 1950s and 1960s
Our visit to the Southern Region in the 1950s and 60s includes some very rare glimpses of such joys as a Urie H16, SECR L class 4-4-0s and the unique "Tunnel Railway" in Ramsgate. "Gate Stock" takes us to Turnchapel behind (and in the cab of) an LSWR 02.
Branches & Byways Eastern & North Eastern
In the Eat some of the well-remembered lines in East Anglia and Northumberland are visited with such engines as C12s, B12s, G5s and J21s in action; locations include Stamford East, Spalding Town, North Walsham, Little Weighton, Barnard Castle, Stainmore and Tebay.
BR Standard Locomotive classes
Our nearly comprehensive review of BR Standard classes even includes a Crosti (but not "The Duke", sadly!). Examples of all the others are shown across the Regions on passenger and freight workings - and some of the variations in tender types used are also seen
Also featuring : The Western in the 60s and Cambrian lines under the LMS
