The first in a series featuring steam in normal everyday service on British Railways prior to 1968. This volume features the work of Ray Hammond who travelled the length and breadth of Britain recording on cine film the final years of BR steam in the 1960s. Here we depict steam on five of the six regions then operating showing the considerable variety of classes that could be seen.


We see ex-GWR locomotives with number and nameplates still intact, and an endless flow of Bulleid Pacifics passing to and from the west at Salisbury.


At Shrewsbury there are ex-LMS and ex-GWR types together and in the North-East we see East Coast Pacifics plus other classes.


In Scotland we see a fine array of steam power ranging from ex-LMS "Crabs" and Class 5s to the J36s, V2s, B1s and A2s of the former LNER as well as BR Standard classes.


The archive film is sourced from 8mm colour cine film and mastered on professional equipment. An authentic soundtrack has been added along with an informative commentary.

The third in our series featuring steam in normal everyday service on British Railways prior to 1968. This volume features the work of Ray Hammond who visited a variety of locations during the 1960s.


This volume depicts steam on four of the six regions then operating. Even at such a late date for steam, a considerable variety of classes could still be seen.


The Western Region is represented by the last day at Bath Green Park whilst on the Southern, Bulleid Pacifics still abound amongst the turmoil of electrification works.


An amazing intensity of steam working is seen on the Wirral and we see ex-LMS and BR classes at points such as Warrington and Wigan on the West Coast Main Line .


We conclude with a visit to the North-East where elderly pre-grouping classes were still hard a work around Blyth and Tyne Dock.

The fourth in our series featuring steam in normal everyday service on British Railways prior to the end of steam in 1968. Ray Hammond travelled Britain recording these final years of BR steam on cine film. In this volume he records the last full year of steam traction in 1967.


On the Southern, steam finished in July 1967. By then the majority of engines were unkempt but not unloved by their drivers, with many tales of Bulleid Pacifics thundering on at over 100mph! Throughout that summer we see a variety of scenes of Pacifics, BR Standards, Ivatts and USA dock tanks all leading up to that finale with well polished Bulleid Pacifics battling it out on the last day.


Over on the London Midland there are some splendid scenes on Shap where a seemingly endless procession of freight, parcels and even express passenger trains were still handled by steam power.


1967 was also the final year of steam working on the North Eastern Region. Here we have some evocative views around Ryhope, on the Silksworth branch and some scenes at Leeds Central during the last days of steam traction.

The fifth in our series featuring steam in normal everyday service on British Railways proir to the end of steam in 1968.

Beginning at Beattock in 1962-64, steam was still well in evidence on all except the most importatnt workings and most trains were banked by the local stud of 2-6-4Ts.


Following a brief visit to Killin to view the peculiar run-round procedure, we head south to Tebay and Shap were types seen include "Royal Scots", 9Fs, "Princess Coronations" and various Class 5s.


A comprehensive visit to Bromsgrove and the Lickey Incline towards the end of the days of steam banking is followed by sequences at various locations in the Midlands and the programme concludes with scenes of intense activity at Basingstoke.

The established author and photographer Hugh Ballantyne is well know for his still photographs of the railway scene but what is less well known is that in the 1960s, he and his wife Toni, also took a considerable quantity of cine film. This programme covers a variety of locations on the Western Region and Southern Region of British Railways between 1962 and 1966 when steam power still featured on many services, including express passenger workings.


Opening on their home territory of the time, the first scenes are on the Somerset and Dorset at Bath Green Park in 1962 when 9F 2-10-0s could be seen on trains such as the "Pines Express". Views along the Somerset & Dorset follow, right up to the closure in 1966.


Other routes covered include Barnstaple to Taunton, the Hemyock branch, the Cheddar Valley line, Worcester to Oxford, the Kingham area, the Fairford Branch, Bere Alston to Callington, Reading to Redhill and the Severn Valley Railway at Bridgnorth in 1963.

Large scale railway preservation has now existed in Britain for longer than the Big Four groups and much longer than steam ran under British Railways.

Here we look at the earlier years of the preservation scene with some views stretching back into the 1960s. At certain points, recent views of familiar places are shown for comparison.

We begin on the Ffestiniog Railway in the late 1960s with the stock still in green and cream or brown. Other Welsh narrow gauge lines visited include the Talyllyn and the Welshpool & Llanfair.

Moving into England and working from South to North, we see the Bluebell Railway in its small engine era, an 0-4-2T on the Cholsey to Wallingford branch and such vanished locations as the Dowty site at Ashchurch and Dinting Railway Centre. In all around twenty venues are visited across the country.

For the first time, one of Hugh Ballantyne's famous slide shows given at venues up and down the country is being offered on DVD. The images are mostly in colour, going back to 1961, supplemented by a small selection of b & w images going back to 1950, over 175 images in all. These are presented in a magnificent slide show of optically-scanned and enhanced pictures with a full informative commentary. The show begins with an overview of all the classes that were to be encompassed in the proposed 1946 LMS locomotive standardisation scheme along with views of many other former LMS and constituent types that continued to work for much of the BR steam era. The next section contains overall views of a number of ex-LMS steam depots and then we take a journey down the West Coast Main Line with superb lineside views at many locations between Euston and the Clyde Valley. This is followed by scenes taken on various other lines that had belonged to the LMS. The DVD concludes with scenes of ex-LMS locos working over "foreign" metals in the UK plus a small number of views depicting LMS-designed 8F 2-8-0s overseas.

PLEASE NOTE that the images in this volume are of SLIDES and NOT moving video.
