Vol.29 - Steam Around the Midland (60-mins)


Vol.29 - Steam Around the Midland (60-mins)

Ref: BR029D


Film from Brian Lockey of Luton who recorded so many of the events around the Midland Main Line from 1958 onwards with the accent on Luton Midland and Bute Street, from Napsbury to Sharnbrook before steam finished on this busy route into the capital. Early railtours over closed branches and secondary lines are included with sometimes quite unusual motive power such as both tours with J52 No.1247 in the early sixties to Hertford and over the Hatfield to Luton Line. A journey around Midland and London & North-Western lines centred on Luton is the main theme of this video with all the usual LMS types associated with the area included such as Jubilee, Royal Scot, 4F, 2P, Fowler and Stanier tanks, 9F, Black 5, Super D, 8F and Standards, Northampton-Olney-Bedford locals, Wellingborough and excursion traffic at Luton (just look at those headboards). The Hemel Hempstead and Higham Ferrers branches preclude a visit to Derby Works and the "Farewell to Midland" steam tour of June 1968 with "Oliver Cromwell" to Manchester brings to an end another fascinating insight into a long vanished scene.

Three main railways ran through the East Midlands. The Midland itself, the LNWR and the last to arrive was the Great Central. This video looks at these lines and their connections and branches from 1959 to 1967. The GC is followed from Marylebone to Nottingham, with views from 1964 with B1, Hall, Jubilee and 9F, plus the last workings of Stanier’s Black 5’s when things did not always go to plan; a failure of 44936 at Brackley is a gem! The Newport Pagnell branch is covered before a long look at the Leighton Buzzard to Luton secondary line. Luton is featured before a journey along the original Midland route to London, from Hitchin to Bedford, when 3F’s still worked the freight. Northampton to Peterborough East follows before viewing the Seaton to Stamford push-pulls from the lineside, on the footplate and on train. Ironstone was once the big industry in the East Midlands and n in depth look at the systems and BR’s role in taking it away is featured. Derby Works and shed are visited as well as the Wirksworth branch. Motive power seen is predominately LMS, 0F, 2F, 3F, 4F, Black 5, Jubilee, Super D, Scot and Duchess. Seven Bl’s appear, even an Al pacific, GW Hall and Castle, and Merchant Navy 35030. Along with Standard types this shows that the East Midlands certainly had variety. Early liveried diesels also appear, including DP2 and the Blue Pullman.

Again, the success of our Volumes 29 and 42 have led to this production centred on the Midland main line through Wellingborough and Kettering. However, views at Leicester, Nuneaton, Nottingham and Staveley set the scene to begin at Marylebone for the GC and St.Pancras to Luton. Remember when Class 27's in their original livery worked suburban stock and the Wheathampstead to Dunstable branch was still with us? This time it is with diesel and early DMU as steam was covered in Volume 29. Next the steam scene north of Irchester Junction to Wellingborough and Kettering. In the early 1960's freight dominated the railway here; 9F, WD and 8F engines pulled loaded and empty trains along the four track main line. Wellingborough shed and station saw Fowler and Jinty tanks and the 84000 Standard tanks on the locals to Northampton. We traverse the route to Northampton Bridge Street with a 78000 Class mogul. The main traffic from the area was ironstone; visit Irchester, Finedon, Cranford and Kettering Furnaces industrial systems. There was a line to Butlins, Butlins Sidings that is! Engines working hard and fast, slow and branch line work, a feast of steam in an area now mostly devoid of the traffic you see in this video.

Jim Clemens Collection No.25. JIM CLEMENS filmed the railways of Britain around the system from Scotland to Cornwall. The area covered in this volume just about finishes his travels for it is in an area to the east of the West Coast mainline from NUNEATON to BLETCHLEY. The previous time we were in this area was when he covered the Great Central route and its branches.

In this volume we begin at Nottingham Victoria and work south to LEICESTER. The DESFORD line is seen with a 2F 0-6-0. A steam tour in 1963 covers the route east from NOTTINGHAM on the Great Northern Grantham route to Bottesford and then to Melton Mowbray and Leicester. East again to Seaton, Luffenham and Ashwell.

South to Rugby and onto NORTHAMPTON. The area east of here towards WELLINGBOROUGH and Peterborough was full of industrial stone quarries. The narrow gauge Wellingborough and Kettering systems are covered along with NASSINGTON, EXTON PARK, STOREFIELD, IRCHESTER, SCALDWELL and CORBY.

Returning to Northampton we cover the line south via OLNEY to BEDFORD and HITCHIN. Then BEDFORD to BLETCHLEY. Before returning north to NUNEATON, the LEIGHTON BUZZARD to DUNSTABLE and WOLVERTON to NEWPORT PAGNELL branches are visited. A call once more at RUGBY for Princess Coronations and even the “Duke of Gloucester” passing through a station now heavily rebuilt with so many yards and sidings removed.

There are 22 different classes of steam engine in this volume from Jinty to Pacifics. Eastern steam and even a Western Hall appear. With Industrial engines included, it all adds up to 80-minutes of enjoyable video!

The film has been mastered with an authentic sound-track and researched in detail to give an informative commentary.
