Riding the DCR Spoil Train - New Cab Ride on DVD & Blu-ray
The use of DCR Class 56 locomotives on the Willesden to Calvert spoil trains may well have been the freight highlight of 2013.
This is a cab ride on 56091, filmed on a fine sunny day in August, featuring the entire journey. With just short of 1700 tonnes in tow, the journey starts in the busy west London freight area, finishing in the scenic Buckinghamshire countryside and the 56 has to work hard tackling the gradients of the Chiltern route.
Upon departure from Willesden and a run-round move at Mitre Bridge Junction, we run forward to Acton and the Great Western mainline before taking the Greenford branch at West Ealing. Joining the Chiltern mainline at South Ruislip we continue to Princes Risborough and take the single line to Aylesbury, then forward onto the old Great Central mainline, now a freight only single line to the landfill site at Calvert. ...full details

UK Light Rail and Tram Museum Guide 2013
LAST CHANCE TO GET YOUR COPY. LIMITED STOCKS AVAILABLE!
A new concept in the Light Rail and Tramway publishing world is a brand-new 128-page guidebook, available for the first time this year. Excluding systems such as Docklands and Tyne and Wear Metro – which are already covered in railway guide books – this book concentrates on the systems that operate with what are essentially trams.
From the rebirth of the British tram system in Manchester in 1992, today there are six modern light rail systems: Sheffield, Birmingham, Croydon and Nottingham plus the newly upgraded Blackpool tramway. Although the Dublin-Luas system and the Manx Electric Railway do not fall into the UK demographic, they are geographically within the landmass known as the British Isles and are included for the sake of completeness. Scotland’s first modern tramway, due to open in Edinburgh in 2014, is also featured.
In addition to the modern networks, eight operational museum lines are included, at: Beamish, Crich, Manchester (Heaton Park), Birkenhead, Lowestoft, Seaton, Coatbridge (Summerlee) and Dudley (Black Country Museum). ...full details
