Anglia Region Suburban Memories


Anglia Region Suburban Memories

Ref: JK112D


Here we bring back memories of the Anglia Region of British Rail since the 1970's, concentrating predominently on the lines from Liverpool Street and Fenchurch Street, in the London area, out to Shenfield and Purfleet. We see Liverpool Street station before the rebuilding, carried out between 1986 and 1992, when long distance services, parcels and freight traffic, were diesel hauled by Class 31, 37, and 47 locos. Stratford has always been a busy place to observe freight workings, many of which were in the hands of Class 37 locos.


The LNER designed Class 306 'Shenfield' units are extensively covered, along with classes 302, 305, 307, 309, 312, 315, 321, and 322 EMU's amongst others. DMU workings from Camden Road to North Woolwich are featured. The sound film has captured the distinctive noises of the Shenfield units very accurately. Later scenes show the preserved green unit '017' in passenger service in 2001, alongside Great Eastern branded Class 315's. Class 86 and 90 electric locos are also featured, along with the 'Stansted Express', 'Electrostar', 'Desiro' and Class 170 turbo units.

A Mediterranean Trilogy: Athens, Instanbul, Soller (Majorca)


A Mediterranean Trilogy: Athens, Instanbul, Soller (Majorca)

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.

Austria - A Tram Enthusiast's Paradise


Austria - A Tram Enthusiast's Paradise

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


Bakerloo To Stanmore & Watford

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.

Britain's New Tram & Light Rail Systems


Britain's New Tram & Light Rail Systems

Ref: JK104D


Britain's traditional tramways, with the exception of Blackpool and the Manx Electric, had all been consigned to museums by 1962. The first system to adopt modern light-rail technology was the 'Tyne and Wear Metro', opened in 1980.

Following the success of the Tyne and Wear system, the automated 'Docklands Light Railway' was introduced to stimulate development of the former London Docks. This fully segregsted and automated system opened in 1987, using 3rd-rail current collection, and has expanded progressively since.

The first example of the return of a street-running tramway came with the opening of Manchester's 'Metrolink' in 1992. This system was based on taking over two commuter rail lines, and linking them via street track to the principal railway station. It has since extended to Eccles.

The 'South Yorkshire Supertram' opened in Sheffield in 1994, and is a 30.5 km mainly street-based system.

The next system to open was the 'Midland Metro', which opened in 1999, and lonked Birmingham with Woolverhampton, using a former railway alignment, but with street-running in Wolverhampton.

The highly successful 28km 'Croydon Tramlink' opened in 2000, and uses a combination of street-track, disused railway alignments, and new construction. It has revolutionised transport to the major suburb of New Addington.

On this DVD, we look at the operation of all these systems, and see how light-rail can provide fast, reliable, efficient, and attractive urban transit.

Central Line Past & Present


Central Line Past & Present

Ref: JK108D


We trace the history of the Central Line from its early beginnings through to the present day, using a mixture of still photographs and archive film - courtesy London's Transport Museum - and modern film. We see Central London Railway stock on the Ealing Broadway branch, the Building of Holborn Staion, and the opening of the post war extensions - with pre 1938 'Standard Stock'. Steam on the Epping to Ongar shuttle is covered by Alan Willmott's classic 1956 film.

This DVD contains many other interesting flashbacks, including ATO trials with '1960 Stock' on the Hainault to Woodford shuttle, and the building of the new booking hall at Oxford Circus, involving the temporary 'umbrella bridge' for road traffic. The 1986 prototypes for new Central Line stock are seen, operating on the Jubilee Line. There is considerable sound-film coverage of the period when the line was operated by '1962 Tube Stock', including the Epping to Ongar shuttle. '1992 Stock' is seen under construction at BREL in Derby, and being delivered to Ruislip depot.

The latter part of this DVD covers much of the present day scene, including interesting aspects of rolling stock, infrastructure, and station architecture, including the 'Waterloo & City Line' when it became part of the Central Line Business Unit.

Disc 1 District Line - Past (50-mins)

This traces the history of the line from its opening in 1868, through to electrification in the early part of the 20th century, and up to the present day. An archive film, taken in 1930, gives us a cab ride from West Kensington to Acton Town, and beyond, at the time when extra tracks were being laid for the Piccadilly Line extension. We see early electric rolling stock in use, most with American style clerestory roofs. Later we see Q stock, R stock, and CO/CP stock in service. There is film of the short South Acton branch that closed in 1959. Other items included are the final tours with the CO/CP and R stocks, and “Steamon the District” in 1993, using pannier tank L99, backed up with electric locomotive “Sarah Siddons”.

Trams returned to Dublin in 2004, with two separate routes, known as the Red and Green lines. This DVD starts with construction scenes, and the trams being built at the Alstom factory in La Rochelle, France. This is followed by a detailed look at the operation of both lines, including visits to their respective depots.


The Red Line links Connolly and Heuston mainline stations, before heading out to Tallaght, in the south west suburbs. The Green Line terminates at St Stephen's Green, and, after traversing Harcourt Street, and Adelaide Road, climbs onto the alignment of the former Harcourt Street to Shanganagh Junction railway line, to head southwards to Sandyford. Both lines are operated by Alstom 'Citadis' trams, the Red Line using 26 x 30m long 'Type 301' cars, and the Green Line using 14 of the longer 40m 'Class 401' cars.

East Coast Main Line Memories 1975 to 2008


East Coast Main Line Memories 1975 to 2008

Ref: JK094D


Disc 1 (69-minutes)


Our visit to the East Coast Main Line starts at Kings Cross in 1975, when all trains were diesel powered. Main line services were in the hands of the iconic Deltics, and Class 47’s, with the occasional visiting Peak. Suburban services were provided by DMU’s and Class 31’s, hauling compartment stock. We see the electrification of the suburban services, including the Finsbury Park to Moorgate route, and the last Eastern Region passenger trains over the LT Widened Lines.

The extensive remodelling of the approaches to Kings Cross, in the second half of the 1970’s, is also featured.


Moving North, there is considerable coverage of the diesel era at Doncaster, York, Newcastle, and Edinburgh, and also a visit to Scarborough.


At Edinburgh we see Class 47’s operating the Glasgow ‘Push-Pull’ service.


The coming of the HST’s is followed by the progressive electrification between London, Leeds, and Edinburgh, using Class 91 locomotives.


Disc 2 (56-minutes)

Our story continues into the era of privatisation, and includes the use of Class 90 locos on Leeds services. We see the introduction of the GNER livery, plus Eurostars, and the unique Class 89 in service.

East London Line Past & Present


East London Line Past & Present

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.

Hong Kong Tramways in the 1980s

Ref: JK127D


In this volume we show Hong Kong’s iconic 3 foot 6 inch gauge tramway as it was between 1977 and 1992, when the former colony was still under British administration. In the early scenes, single deck trailers were still in operation. The double deck trams dated from the 1950’s. We take a comprehensive look at the tramway, including the now closed Sharp Street depot and workshops. Several top deck journeys are featured.


Also included are views of the Mass Transit Railway, the Kowloon Canton Railway, the Star Ferry and the lightweight cars on the Peak Tram. Inevitably British double deck buses, including many ex-London Daimler Fleetlines, feature prominently, as they ran parallel with the tramway. Open-top Routemasters are also seen on the Peak Tram shuttle.


The final part, filmed in 1992, shows the tram fleet after it had received new bodies, and also shows the new rolling stock on the Peak Tramway. A visit is also made to the Tuen Mun Light Rail system in the New Territories.

Hungarian Tramway Review


Hungarian Tramway Review

Ref: JK100D


There are trams running in four Hungarian cities, most with rolling stock unique to the country. By far the largest system is in Budapest, the capital city, where there are three Metro lines, each with distinctive rolling stock, light railway lines, an extensive trolley-bus network, and a rack railway. Whilst this DVD deals mainly with the trams, there is some coverage of the other modes, and in particular, the fascinating 'Foldalatti Metro', dating from 1896. A highlight of our visit is a tram tour using a restored 2-axle car, dating from 1909.


The attractive provincial city of Debrecen has a single tram line, worked by unique 'Ganz' articulated trams, dating from 1997, running alongside 'two room and a bath' articulated cars from the 1960's.


Miskolc, in the north east of the country, has replaced its older rolling stock with secondhand 'Tatra KT8' articulated cars, painted in the corporate green and yellow livery, and ex Vienna 'E Class' articulated cars and bogie trailers, still running in their former owners colours.


The fourth tramway is in Szeged, in the south of the country, where there are four tram routes. Routes 3, 3F and 4 are still worked with 'two room and a bath' articulated cars, which make evocative, traditional, tram noises. Route 1 is currently worked by 'Tatra T6' and 'KT4D' cars, in an attractive yellow and blue livery, relieved with white and a red stripe. There is also some earlier film of 2-axle museum cars operating in 1990.

Irish Rail Memories 1995 to 2013

Ref: JK124D


This volume provides an extensive nostalgic look at the Irish Rail scene since 1995, during which time there have been major changes. This video captures the days of near universal locomotive haulage and semaphore signalling, in many parts of the Republic. Since then, locomotive haulage has largely given way to railcars on most intercity routes, and commuter services. Locomotives no longer run round their trains at termini.


Locomotive classes featured are 071, 121, 141, 181, 071, and 201, along with various classes of Railcars, and EMU’s on the DART. The change of livery from orange, to green and silver is documented.


Preserved steam operation is shown on the Tralee & Dingle, and Cavan & Leitrim heritage lines, now only a memory themselves. Also featured are the Bombardier buses operated by Dublin Bus and Bus Eireann.

This fascinating production was filmed in 1974 on the occasion of the Isle of Man Steam Railway's Centenary, and during the 1983 Vintage Transport Weekend, which was run for transport enthusiasts. During the Steam Railway's Centenary, a number of locos that had not been used for years were on display at the impressive terminus in Douglas, which at that time, had two island platforms, complete with canopies. and an impressive array of semaphore signals. Crossbench cars were much in evidence on the Manx Electric Railway, which serves Laxey and Ramsey. The Douglas Southern Tramway is remembered, using film of the preserved No 1, making a rare appearance running at the Crich Tramway Museum.


During the 1983 event there was much activity, as a number of specials were run on the Manx Electric, including newly restored loco No 23, pioneer electric car 2, a number of crossbench cars, and a rarely seen saloon trailer. Specials also ran on the Steam Railway, including a train in blue livery, plus some spectacular double-headed run-pasts. The ex County Donegal Railcars are also seen in action. The Snaefell Mountain Railway is featured, as well as the Douglas Horse Tramway, when the winter saloons and some of the open cars were out on the promenade.

Jubilee Line Past & Present


Jubilee Line Past & Present

Ref: JK089D


The Jubilee Line was created using the Baker Street to Stanmore branch of the Bakerloo line, coupled to a new extension from Baker Street to Charing Cross via Bond Street and Green Park. Even earlier this section of the Bakerloo Line itself had taken over former Metropolitan line tracks in 1939. When first planned, the new line was named the Fleet Line, but in 1977 it was renamed the Jubilee Line to commemorate the Queen’s Silver Jubilee that year. However due to construction delays it did not open until 1979. The line was further extended in 1999 to reach Stratford. The section of line between Green Park and Charing Cross was abandoned and the new line routed via Westminster and Waterloo. The line was opened in time to serve the Millennium Dome in 2000.


Here we trace the line’s origins through the Metropolitan and Bakerloo lines and take a detailed look at the line today. In its short history the line has had three generations of rolling stock, namely the 1972 Mark II stock, the 1983 stock and the present 1996 stock, as well as the 1986 prototype tube stock, all seen in action.


Other features included are the 1938 tube stock when it was part of the Bakerloo Line, the Stanmore Open Day, which also saw 1960 stock operating between Stanmore and Neasden and a variety of other Underground rolling stock on display, and a visit to Stratford depot. In 2009 the London Transport Museum’s preserved 1938 stock toured the Jubilee Line between Stratford and West Hampstead and this is covered in some detail. The final section takes a detailed look at the line and its interchanges with all the other Underground lines, the DLR and National Rail services.

Lisbon's Trams Past & Present


Lisbon's Trams Past & Present

Ref: JK096D


The exciting city of Lisbon has five tram routes today, one of which is mainly operated by modern, articulated cars. The other routes are mainly operated by a fleet of 45 remodelled 'Standard' cars. The city is built on seven hills, and there are three interesting street funiculars, and a vertical lift, which offers good views accross the city. The tram operator 'CARRIS', also provides tourist trams, which offer tours of the more interesting parts of the city, including the hilly 'Graca' district, with its narrow, winding streets.


In this production, after reviewing the present scene, we take the viewer back to see many of the routes that have passed into history, including 'Poco do Bispo', 'Cruz Quebrada', 'Arco do Cego', 'Alcantara', 'Largo do Rato', and 'Carmo'. We see and hear the American built cross-bench and semi-convertible bogie cars, lightweight cars, and trailers in operation. The tramway system reached its peak in 1958, and has been much reduced as the Metro has expanded, and road traffic has vastly increased.


There are scenes of British-built AEC and Daimler buses, and the 'Estoril' railway. We see the remodelling of the present fleet taking place in Santo Amaro works in 1995. Finally we visit the tram museum, where a representative collection of historical trams and buses is displayed.

At the same time TfL took over the Liverpool Street to Shenfield service. They inherited existing fleets of class 315 and 317 emus from the previous franchise holders. All were overhauled and outshopped in either London Overground or TfL liveries. Signage was brought in line with their corporate images, and stations were manned during operating hours.


Here we show all the lines in detail during the period following the change over, and before the existing rolling stock was replaced by new class 345 and 710 Aventra emus. The Shenfield line was destined to become part of the new Elizabeth line, running through tunnels under central London to Reading and Heathrow in the west. Work to upgrade stations along the line are seen in this production.


Seven-car Aventra Class 345s, which first entered service on the Shenfield line in 2017, are shown in operation. These were scheduled to be increased to nine-car formations for the Elizabeth line by the time the first section opened.

London Underground C Stock Remembered


London Underground C Stock Remembered

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.


Here we trace the history of this stock, and give 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.

Marylebone Steam in the 1980s


Marylebone Steam in the 1980s

Ref: JK115D


In the 1980’s, Marylebone had become a sleepy commuter terminus, with little to interest railway enthusiasts. There was great excitement in 1985, when A4 Pacific “Sir Nigel Gresley” began a series of steam runs from Marylebone to Stratford-upon-Avon. Over the remainder of the decade, many other famous steam locomotives headed “The Shakespeare Limited” dining train, as well as a number of Rail Tours and Santa Specials.


Here we feature many of the runs, as well as a journey to Stratford behind “Clan Line”. Other locomotives seen include, “Duchess of Hamilton”, “Flying Scotsman”, Standard Class 4MT 75069, “Sir Lamiel”, “Mallard”, “Green Arrow”, “City of Wells”, “Clun Castle”, “Princess Elizabeth”, “Taw Valley”, and “Duke of Gloucester”.


Also included are steam runs to Stratford-upon-Avon from Didcot, hauled by “Drysllwyn Castle”, and from Tyseley by “King Edward I” and Castle Class “Defiant”.


The entire programme was filmed with sound, including the A4’s chime whistles, which were sounded frequently.

Merseyrail Classes 502 & 503 Remembered


Merseyrail Classes 502 & 503 Remembered

Ref: JK119D


This volumesprovides 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.

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)

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.

In this production, we trace the story of the Northern Line, from the opening of the 'City and South London Railway' in 1890. Using stills and archive film, kindly supplied by London's Transport Museum, we see the CS&L Railway's distinctive rolling stock being pulled by diminutive electric locomotives. The massive task of enlarging the original tunnels, to take standard size tube rolling stock, is featured. The story covers 'The Hampstead Tube', and the various extensions and links that were built to create today's line. The isolated 'Great Northern & City Railway', between Moorgate and Finsbury Park, became part of the Northern Line in 1939, and is seen in operation in its latter days.


The wide variety of rolling stock that has operated on the line is seen, together with 1995 stock under construction at the Alstom factory in Birmingham. The remainder of the programme gives detailed coverage of the present day scene, including interesting aspects of infrastructure and station architecture.

Oporto's Trams Past & Present


Oporto's Trams Past & Present

Ref: JK116D


In this volume, we trace the history of Oporto’s first generation tramway, up until its closure in 1996, using extensive archive sound film shot in the 1980’s and 1990’s. Some of the earlier tram routes went over to trolleybuses from 1959, including some

double deckers, and these are also featured.


Disc 1

The centenary of electric trams was celebrated in 1995 when crowds turned out to see former mule tram number 22 re-enact the original run from Carmo to Massarelos. During the celebrations a number of restored museum trams gave free rides between Carmo and Boavista which are seen in action. A number of Oporto trams came to Britain. Bogie car 273 is seen in operation at the National tramway Museum, Crich, and 2-axle car 196 at the Beamish Museum.


Disc 2 - Duration 47 minutes

In part 2 we see trams operating on the three heritage routes, as well as the short lived Tourist route T. We also visit the impressive tram museum at Massarelos, where there are examples of many of the different types that graced the city’s streets.

Creation of the heritage routes involved laying new tracks in parts of the city that had not seen trams for many years, and relocating tracks along the historic waterfront onto a reservation.


We also visit the impressive Light Rail network, which has grown to 67 km with 80 stations. Branded as Metro do Porto, it currently has six lines, all of which intersect at Trindade. The most impressive feature is where it crosses the river Douro on the

upper deck of the Dom Luis II bridge.

Steam Returns to the Underground

Ref: JK121D


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

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.

This volume evokes memories of British Rail Southern Region in the 1970's and 80's, prior to the creation of Network Southeast. The opening scenes, near Wimbledon, capture the change from green to blue livery, when some of the old Southern Railway stock was still in service. The ubiquitous slam-door suburban 4 sub and 4 EPB EMU's feature prominently, along with the 2 HAP's at such locations as Victoria, Clapham Junction, Vauxhall, Waterloo and London Bridge, as well as further into the London suburbs. Victoria, Cannon Street and Charing Cross stations are seen as they appeared before they were rafted over for property development. There is also a brief look at the former Holborn Viaduct terminus.


This programme also shows scenes of the narrow profile 'Hastings' diesels, and class 73 electro diesels. Outer suburban rolling stock is covered, including scenes at Bournemouth, before the line to Weymouth was electrified, when class 33 diesel locos took over for the last part of the journey. Push-pull operation to Olympia with class 33 locos is covered, as well as glimpses of Dover Marine and the Folkstone Harbour branch.


Finally, the green preserved 4 sub and 2 BIL units are seen in operation during the Cannon Street open day in 1986.

Filmed in high-definition in 2007, we take a look at four railways in the South East which ARE 'Still Steaming'.


We visit the 'Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway' during the week prior to its 80th birthday. Four steam locos and a diesel are seen in operation over various parts of the line, and we see an unusual non-stop special, which operated daily that week as part of the celebrations.


We visit the 'Leighton Buzzard Narrow Gauge Railway' on 'Father's Day' 2007. We explore the line, courtesy of steam loco number 740, built in 1907 for the Matheran Light Railway in India, and diesel-hydraulic loco 'Beaudesert', built specially for the railway in 1999, using parts from a former 900mm gauge Simplex loco, which was used during the construction of the Channel Tunnel. Vertical-boilered loco 'Chaloner' is also seen in steam.


The 'Sittingbourne and Kemsley Light Railway' is almost unique amongst preserved railways, in that it operates using original rolling stock, hauled by original locos, over part of its original track. We see manoevres at both ends of the line, as well as on-route.*


Finally, we pay a visit to the 'Mid Hants Railway' during the 30th Anniversary celebrations of its re-opening between Alresford and Ropley. Two locos were in steam, Merchant Navy Class number 35005 'Canadian Pacific', and Standard Class Five number 73096. We see them both in operation on this busy spring Saturday in 2007.

Waterloo & City Line and Island Line Past & Present


Waterloo & City Line and Island Line Past & Present

Ref: JK120D


Waterloo & City Line

The Waterloo & City Line was the second deep level underground line to open in London, opening in 1898. During its life, it has had three generations of rolling stock. In 1940, the Southern Railway replaced the original American built trains with unique tube trains that ran until 1993. It operated as part of the Southern Region of British Rail, until the formation of Network South East in 1986. In 1994, the line was taken over by London Underground, and today forms part of its network, although physically isolated from the other lines. This production has extensive cover of the 1940 built trains in service, and also the present 1992 stock in both Network South East and London Underground liveries. Also featured, are the signal box and workshops at Waterloo, and the refurbished trains in their London Underground red, being lowered into the tunnels.


Duration 33 minutes


Island Line

The Island Line on the Isle of Wight runs from Ryde Pier Head to Shanklin. It was electrified in 1967 by British Railways, and has been worked with former London Underground tube trains since, initially using pre-1938 standard stock, and, since 1991, 1938 stock. This production has extensive footage, with original sound, taken in the 1970's, when 7-car trains of standard stock were the norm. It goes on to feature the 1938 stock in Network South Eats, Dinosaur, and London Transport red liveries over the succeeding years.

West Coast Main Line Memories 1974-2007


West Coast Main Line Memories 1974-2007

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.

Western Region Memories - London & the Home Counties


Western Region Memories - London & the Home Counties

Ref: JK098D


This volume covers services from Paddington since 1975, when loco haulage was the norm. There are scenes of the last days of operation of the 'Western' class diesel hydraulics, and a proliferation of class 31's, 47's and 50's. Suburban class 117 and 122 DMU's are also much in evidence, as well as class 128 and loco hauled parcels trains. The change to HST's on principal services is covered. Services along the main lines as far as Newbury and Didcot are featured, as well as services to Birmingham via High Wycombe. The Greenford, Windsor and Marlow branches are seen, as well as the 'Royalty and Railways Exhibition' at Windsor.


The 'Paddington 125' celebrations included a steam run to Didcot behind 'King George V'. There are two visits to the Southall Railway Centre, when industrial steam was in operation, and a run along the Brentford branch on the 'Brentford Coupler', comprising a pair of class 122 'Bubble Cars'.


The class 210 DEMU prototype is seen on a number of occasions. Steam specials with 'King Edward I' are included, as well as the 'Mince Pie' steam specials via the Greenford loop in December 1994, hauled by British Rail tank loco 80079 and class 2MT 46521.


A special visit to the Foster Yeoman quarry at Merehead behind 47500 'Great Western', also shows their American-built switcher shunting aggregate wagons.


Construction work in connection with the 'Heathrow Express' is shown, together with trains using the temporary 'Heathrow Junction' station, as well as first-day scenes at Paddington and the Airport Terminals.


Steam is seen at the Didcot Railway Centre during the Millenium celebrations, and at the Old Oak Common open day of the same year, together with a variety of preserved diesels associated with the Western Region.


Bringing the story up to date, we see various livery changes resulting from privatisation, and class 180 'Adalente's'.
