From the 1970s to the 2000s, all Britain's best loved Intercity trains, (the ubiquitous HST High Speed Trains) were powered by Paxman Valenta diesel engines with their unique sound. Today these have been replaced by newer engines so no longer can one hear the iconic HSTs "scream" past.

Video 125 cameras happened to capture the sounds (and sights) of these iconic trains during their heyday, and this programme is a compilation of dozens of shots taken from our archive depicting various locations around the country. A series of runbys, without commentary, is not everybody's cup of tea but for those who lament the passing of these nostalgic sounds, this film will bring back happy lineside and platform memories.

Running time is 84 minutes and includes dozens of locations, all featuring HSTs from BR, GNER, Midland Mainline, Virgin Trains and First Great Western filmed between 1986 and 2006.* All soundtracks are 100% in broadcast-quality stereo.

*Some of these were included in Driver's eye view productions, but often cut short. Many of the shots have never been shown before.

The very best of preserved and working steam trains in Southern Africa filmed over a four year period by enthusiast and cameraman Jean Dulez.

Living in South Africa, Jean was uniquely able to travel throughout the African sub-continent to seek out the most spectacular locations to film preserved steam at its best. He was also able to record the amazing spectacle of some of the last pockets of working industrial steam trains in the 21st century in Botswana and Zimbabwe.

It takes an ardent enthusiast and expert photographer to compile a series of sequences of such high quality. Producer Peter Middleton was simply blown away when he first saw the spectacular sequences contained within. The scenery, the weather, the wide variety of steam action over main lines, branch lines, the so-called Cape Gauge (3ft 6ins) plus narrow gauge lines all combine to make this a steam spectacle not to be missed.

The film starts with a brief history of railways in Southern Africa followed by detailed maps and graphics throughout. This is a spectacle that you will want to watch and listen to over and over again, so we have added a commentary off button to allow you to listen to the wonderful stereo sounds of steam engines hard at work without interruption.
