Austria - A Tram Enthusiast's Paradise (120-mins)


Austria - A Tram Enthusiast's Paradise (120-mins)

Ref: JK107D


This DVD covers the present tramway scene in Austria, together with historical sound film dating back as far as 1974, when many 2-axle trams with trailers operated on each of the systems. Today, Austria has five urban tramways, and a number of electric 'Light Railways', some of which are operated by trams.

The capital, Vienna, has the largest tramway system in Western Europe, with around 950 trams operating on 32 routes, as well as the Stadtbahn, U-Bahn, and Wiener Lokalbahn interurban to Baden. A visit to the Vienna Tram Museum is included, and we take a ride on one of the many tram sets in its collection.

The country's smallest tramway is at Gmunden, and connects the lakeside resort with the OBB railway station at the top of a steep hill. From here, brief visits are made to the 'Stern & Hafferl' lines in upper Austria, including Gmunden-Vorchdorf, Vorchdorf-Lambach, Lambach-Haag, and the Attersee line.

Linz has three urban routes on the unusual 900mm gauge, plus the steeply graded 'Postlingbergbahn' mountain tramway. A visit is also made to the 'Saint Florian' museum line.

Next we take a run on the 'Salzburger Lokalbahn', including a ride on a restored set dating from the early part of the 20th century.

The scenic town of Innsbruck has both urban and interurban lines to offer, and this DVD includes the parade of historic cars for the centenary in 1991. Using archive soundfilm, we see the last days of 'AC' operation on the 'Stubaitalbahn', with the distinctive sounds echoing around the mountains.

Finally we visit the busy six-route system in Graz, including some scenes of its excellent tramway museum.

Bakerloo To Stanmore & Watford (66-mins)


Bakerloo To Stanmore & Watford (66-mins)

Ref: JK102D


London's Bakerloo tube line reached its maximum extent in 1939, when it took over the former Metropolitan Line branch to Stanmore. Contraction began in 1965, when services north of Queen's Park were cut back to peak hours only. A major loss occurred when the new Jubillee Line took over the entire Stanmore branch in 1979. A further major cutback occurred in 1982, when all services north of Stonebridge Park were withdrawn. However, after political pressure, services were restored as far as Harrow & Wealdstone in June 1984, and continue to this day.

On this DVD we trace the history of the line, & study both the former Stanmore & Watford branches in detail, including workings to & from Croxley depot. Most of this DVD was filmed when the 1938 tube stock, which operated on theline for 46 years, predominated. The 1959 and 1972 Mark 2 tube stocks are also featured as well as British Rail's Class 501 DC stock which shared tracks on the Watford service. Also included are special workings connected with the rebuilding of Kilburn bridge, the construction of the Jubillee Line and visits by the "Starlight Express" railtour.

East London Line Past & Present (93-mins)  (4:3 screen)


East London Line Past & Present (93-mins) (4:3 screen)

Ref: JK090D


The East London Line was part of London Underground until December 2007. It uses the Thames Tunnel designed by Sir Marc Isambard Kingdom Brunel, and completed in 1843, to pass under the river. The line was electrified in 1913 and was initially worked with Metropolitan Railway saloon stock.

It passed to London Transport in 1933 and saw a wide variety of rolling stock during its time as part of the Underground, including F stock, Q stock, CO/CP stock, 1938 tube stock, A stock in various liveries and D stock. All appear in this production as well as a tour of the line using London Transport Museum's preserved 1938 tube stock just before closure in 2007, and some last day views.

In the second part we see the line reopened as part of the London Overground network. here are scenes taken on the opening day when a limited service ran from Dalston Junction to New Cross and New Cross Gate. The line was extended northwards via Shoreditch High Street along the embankment used by the former line into Broad Street.

From May 2010 the line was further extended southwards, from New Cross Gate to West Croydon and Crystal Palace, over Network Rail's tracks, and operation on these lines is covered in detail. To work the line as part of the Overground, a fleet of new 4-car class 378 EMUs has been built and a new depot constructed at New Cross Gate. he stations have been transferred to London Overground control and given new signs. Where the ELL shares tracks, we see trains operated by Thameslink, Southern and South Eastern.

London Underground C Stock Remembered (98-mins)


London Underground C Stock Remembered (98-mins)

Ref: JK122D


The C stock was built by Metro Cammell in Washwood Heath , Birmingham, and first entered service in 1970, displacing CO/CP stock on the Circle and Hammersmith & City lines. Classified as C69 they were delivered in unpainted aluminium finish with black roofs. A further batch, classified C77, was delivered in 1977 to replace CO/CP stock on the District Line’s Edgware Road to Wimbledon service. In the early 1990’s they were all refurbished and painted in London Underground’s corporate livery. This video traces the history of this stock, and gives extensive cover of them in the final years of operation on all three lines. Also featured are the Yellow Pages and Olympic Bid liveries. It concludes with coverage of the "C Stock Explorer Tour" in April 2014, when the Metropolitan branches to Amersham, Watford and Uxbridge were visited, together with parts of the Piccadilly Line, and finally with the "C Stock Farewell Rail Tour" of 29th June 2014, covering the lines it normally ran on.

London Underground R Stock Remembered


London Underground R Stock Remembered

Ref: JK123D


The R stock first entered service on the District line of the Underground in 1950. In profile it resembled the pre-war O and P stocks, but was technically very different. Initial deliveries had steel bodies and were painted red similar to all trains at that time. Later batches were delivered in unpainted aluminium and the red cars were later painted light grey to

match. They were the first trains on the Underground to be fitted with fluorescent lighting.

In this nostalgic production we see the R stock in service on many parts of the District Line, filmed with original sound including the distinctive whine from the invertors.

The last train of R stock was withdrawn from service on the 4th March 1983. The final tour, which ran in May that year, is also covered by this video.

Merseyrail Classes 502 & 503 Remembered (4:3 screen)

Ref: JK119D


This DVD provides an extensive nostalgic look at the final years of operation of these unique LMS designed EMU's which operated around Liverpool from 1938 until the early 1980's. Using film shot with original sound we see them in operation on many parts of the Merseyrail system. Much has changed in the intervening years, including the disappearance of the semaphore signalling, still much in evidence in this production.

The class 502's were used on the Northern Line services from Liverpool Exchange to Southport and Ormskirk, and after the opening of the underground sections in 1977, to Liverpool Central, Kirkby and Garston. The class 503's were used on services on the Wirral Lines, running to Rock Ferry, West Kirby, and New Brighton. Towards the end of their life some 503 units were used on Northern Line services as well. Narrated by Martin Jenkins

Ref: JK118D


Metropolitan Line From A to S

In 2012 the A stock was finally withdrawn from the Metropolitan Line of London Underground after over 50 years service. Between 2010 and 2012 it was progressively replaced by new 8-car trains of S stock. In this video we see it in action alongside the new trains during its last year of operation, and see the special train that ran on the last day of public service carrying a commemorative headboard. (Duration 46-mins)

MET 150 "Underground Pioneer" Steam Specials

London Underground celebrated the 150th anniversary of the opening of the world's first underground railway between Paddington and Farringdon in 1863. Steam hauled specials ran on Sundays the 13th and 20th January 2013. These consisted of Metropolitan Railway steam locomotive number 1, built at Neasden in 1898, hauling a train comprising 4 teak livered carriages built in 1898/1900 and known as Chesham stock, restored Metropolitan Railway "Jubilee" coach 353 of 1892 and milk van 3 of 1896. At the other end of the train was former Metropolitan Railway electric locomotive number 12, "Sarah Siddons", built in 1923. The train started from Lillie Bridge depot and then ran a series of shuttles between Moorgate and Edgware Road. The first run was made in the morning of the 13th January for invited guests including the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson. Two S stock trains were also specially decorated for the occasion. Large crowds turned out to witness the event. This video covers both days' runs and captures some of the atmosphere of the event. Also featured is locomotive number 1 in action at Quainton Road 4 weeks later, hauling preserved "Dreadnought" Coach number 465. (Duration 26-mins)

Metropolitan Line Past & Present including Steam on the Met (166-mins) (2*DVD)

Ref: JK099D



Disk 1: Metropolitan Line Past (85-mins)

The title 'Metropolitan Line' was adopted by the newly formed London Passenger Transport Board for the lines it inherited from the former Metropolitan Railway in 1933. This DVD traces the history of today's line, and includes a cab ride from Baker Street to Uxbridge, filmed in 1910, as well as film of steam on the Chesham branch, including its centenary in 1989. 'Steam on the Met' became a regular feature in the 1990's, with a variety of visiting locomotives. Most of these are featured, along with tours headed by Metropolitan electric loco no. 12, 'Sarah Siddons'. We see work on the installation of the new bridge over the A40 trunk road at Hillingdon, and refurbishment of the 'A Stock' at Derby. Also included are scenes of a preserved DMU 'Bubble Car', and the C69 'Yellow Pages' unit - both on the Chesham shuttle.


Disk 2: Metropolitan Line Present.

In part 2, we take a detailed look at today's Metropolitan line, which operates at higher speeds than the other underground lines, with some non-stop services. Starting at Aldgate, the line is covered through Baker Street, and out to Chesham and Amersham, and then onto the Uxbridge branch. Interesting aspects of the infrastructure and station architecture are seen. The disc concludes with a look at some of the surviving rolling stock and relics of the Metropolitan Railway.

Mediterranean Trilogy: Athens, Instanbul, Soller (Majorca)  (60-mins)


Mediterranean Trilogy: Athens, Instanbul, Soller (Majorca) (60-mins)

Ref: JK109D


Athens goes Underground. In this programme, we will be seeing how the city's electric transport system has changed since 1984. We start with the 'Athens-Piraeus Railway', when much of the original wooden-bodied stock, dating from 1904, was still in service. For years, Athens has suffered severe traffic congestion and air pollution. To cater for the 2004 Olympics, two new Metro lines were built, with European funding, and we see these in operation, together with modern stock on the Piraeus line. In addition we see how the trolleybus fleet is bing renewed.

Istanbul's Heritage Tramway. This section captures the unique atmosphere of this city that links Europe with Asia. A heritage tourist tramway was opened in 1990, using original metre-gauge trams that had been in storage since 1966, when the former tramways closed. This line provides a useful link between 'Taksim Square' and the 'Tunel Funicular', along the pedestrianised 'Istiklal Caddesi' shopping street. We ride the Tunnel Funicular to see the modern tramway on the other side of the 'Golden Horn', across the 'Galata Bridge', and also see the busy ferries plying the 'Bosphorus'.

The Soller Railway and Tramway. On the attractive holiday island of Majorca, the 'Soller Electric Railway' connects Palma with the mountain town of Soller. The railway still operates with the original wooden-bodied motor cars, dating from electrification in 1929. At Soller, the train connects with the delightful tramway that makes the scenic journey to 'Puerto Soller'. This still uses original motor-trams dating from 1913, pulling 'Toastrack' trailers dating from 1895.

Steam Returns to the Underground

After many years, Steam Specials returned to the London Underground in 2013, when the 150th anniversary of the opening of the world’s first underground railway between Paddington and Farringdon was celebrated. Special trains ran on two Sundays in January. These were hauled by Metropolitan Railway steam locomotive number 1, at one end, and former Metropolitan Railway electric locomotive number 12, "Sarah Siddons" at the other.

Met 1, in light steam, was also featured at the April 2013 Acton Depot Open Days with the Festiniog Railway’s locomotive "Prince" in action.

In May, steam specials ran between Harrow-on-the-Hill and Amersham, this time the motive power consisted of Met 1, Pannier Tank 9466, and Prairie L150 plus no less than three class 20 diesels.

To conclude the 2013 events, steam ran between Harrow-on-the-Hill and Uxbridge on the 8th of December, to celebrate the opening of the present Uxbridge terminus in 1938. Prairie locomotive L150 provided the motive power on this occasion.

In 2014 two steam events were staged. On two Saturdays in August, the Centenary of the Hammersmith & City Line was celebrated with a series of steam hauled shuttles between Moorgate and Hammersmith using locomotive Met 1. Later in August, Met 1 and Prairie L150 ran between Rickmansworth and Chesham, to commemorate 125 years since the opening of the branch.

This production features all these events filmed in a wide variety of locations

Scotrail Memories 1988


Scotrail Memories 1988

Ref: JK117D


The footage used in this DVD was filmed in 1988 during a visit to the Scottish Highlands, when most passenger trains were in the hands of class 37 locomotives.

It starts with scenes of activity at Glasgow Central, before moving to Glasgow Queen Street, terminus for trains on the West Highland line. An interesting variety of locomotives is seen, including some Class 26’s. Next we follow the West Highland line, initially visiting Dumbarton Central and Helensburgh Central, before following the line to a number of other locations, including Garelochhead, Arrochar & Tarbet and Crianlarich. Visits are made to Oban and Fort William. Steam between Fort William and Mallaig is extensively featured, hauled by locomotive 2005. A class 20 is seen shunting at Fort William, as well as the Royal Scotsman excursion train and the overnight sleeper.

The scene then moves to Kyle of Lochalsh and then on to Dingwall. A journey is made from there to Thurso and back behind a class 37, including scenes of the train splitting at Georgemas Junction. The story continues with busy scenes at Inverness - including freight movements - the Strathspey Railway, and then along the Highland line to view movements at Perth.

From Perth the scene moves south to the Bo’ness & Kinnneil Railway, where an ex-Caledonian tank loco was in action. Next the Forth Bridge and finally activity at Edinburgh Waverley, including push pull operation on the Glasgow shuttle. These trains comprised class 47’s in conjunction with Mark 3 coaches and driving van trailers.

West Coast Main Line Memories 1974-2007 (119-mins) (2xDVD-R)

Ref: JK091D


This double album covers railway activity on the West Coast Main Line, and some of its connecting services over a period of more than 30 years.

Disk1 (67-mins): - This disc features the 1970’s and 80’s. Much of it was filmed at principal stations, and covers a wide variety of trains. Whilst electric locomotive haulage is much in evidence, many classes of diesel locos, DMU’s, EMU’s, and freight are covered, and even tube trains on the Bakerloo Line that paralleled the main line between Queen’s Park and Watford, using the DC tracks.

Apart from stations on the main route, between Euston and Glasgow,such as Crewe, Preston, and Carlysle, visits are made to Birmingham New Street, Wolverhampton, Chester, Liverpool, and Manchester Piccadilly. A major feature shows intense activity at Glasgow Central in 1988, including several classes of EMU and DMU in

Strathclyde orange livery. We also see glimpses of the APT prototypes in action.

Disk 2 (52-mins): - The story continues further into the era of sectorisation and privatisation of British Rail during the 1990’s, including the Virgin and Silverlink franchises. The highlights of a cab ride from Euston to Stafford are included. Finally, bringing the story up to date, we see the entry into service of the first of the class 334 EMU’s in the Glasgow area, and the initial introduction of Pendolino’s and Desiro’s to the West Coast Route.
