The Colin White Collection No.1

Colin White has been intensively filming steam from the mid 1960s throughout the UK capturing not only BR steam from most regions, but many early special workings and preserved lines. Fascinating material from the industrial scene as well as a wealth of footage of European and former Eastern Block countries. Originated on Standard 8mm film and transferred to Umatic low band video, expertly sound-tracked, this 1 hour full colour film illustrates the fascination of his work.

Section 1:- (10-mins) - Shap 1967 with steam desperately hanging on, Standard Class 4s being prepared at Tebay as bankers, Stanier 5s and Britannias, all in action including 70033 picking up water at Dillicar troughs, and 46485 with the divisional managers special at Scout Green.

Section 2:- (12-mins) - The Southern in 1966, loco preparation at Nine Elms, turning & coaling. Activity at Waterloo. ECS workings behind 2-6-4 Standard tanks and Bulleids roaring through. Clapham, Raynes Park and New Malden. Several unrebuilds feature and 35014 draws the elegant “Bournemouth Belle” on to its destination.

Section 3:- (20-mins) - A fascinating section of Special Tours mostly on the Southern with 60024 Waterloo-Weymouth, 3442 being prepared at Nine Elms for her stint on SR metals, double-headers include 31639/31411, 31639/33006!, 34057/34102 (both unrebuilt) , 30069/30064. Also 60532 on SR * LMR with 9610/9630 double heading near Wrexham as well as a few others.

Section 4:- (7-mins) - Didcot in 1969 a delightful few minutes watching GWR 0-4-2T 1466 scurrying around the yard even up to the coaling stage. 6106 stretches her legs amongst the now common Class 47’s.

Section 5:- (10-mins) - Corby steam. A glimpse of the hard worked tanks at this now long gone works in Northamptonshire. APCM at Swanscombe follows with tanks 2 & 3 trying hard to stay on the tracks as they transport lime to the kilns. The CEGB Rye House Power Station concludes the section with RSH 0-6-0T doing the shunting.
