NEW Sunrise Sunset UK Volume 4 - on DVD & Blu-ray
Sunrise Sunset UK spends a full day at a busy and popular location, recording a typical day of passenger and freight trains.
Situated in South Yorkshire, seven miles east of Doncaster, Hatfield and Stainforth is not exactly the best known location for railway activity but is situated on a fascinating section of four-track railway, with major junctions east and west.
Sixteen miles west of Scunthorpe, the station has a constant flow of coal, steel, oil and sand trains, serving the industrial areas of Immingham, Lindsey and Goole.
Filmed on 25th June 2014, in total 24 different freight trains are featured, hauled by class 60s and 66s from DBS, Freightliner and GBRf. As well as this a mixture of Northern and TPE DMUs pass by and the best bit of all, during the day, two trainloads of coal arrive and depart from the recently reopened Hatfield Colliery with various shunting and run round moves. 37425 and ‘Caroline’ also pass!
Includes maps and an informative and interesting commentary. Filmed in 16:9 widescreen. ...more details
Chris Tarrant: Extreme Railways - Complete Series One
This series sees TV legend Chris Tarrant embark on turbulent adventures as he travels around the world to experience some of the world's most extreme railways. Chris finds himself stuck in the heart of an African jungle, crossing the vast Australian outback and exploring the Monsoon Coast of India.
Episode One: Congo's Jungle Railway connects Brazzaville on the Congo River to the African coast. This 310 mile route remains a vital lifeline for both people and freight in a country that has few roads and dense jungle.
Episode Two: Australia's Outback Railway - The Ghan. Taking on the 2,000 mile long Adelaide to Darwin line, Chris crosses the desolation of the Outback on the Ghan line. Dating back to the 1870's the line took over 100 years to complete and today passes through deserted towns along with their abandoned railway relics.
Episode Three: India's Monsoon Railway. Exploring the infamous Konkan Railway between Mumbai and Mangalore, battling monsoons and treacherous terrain, Chris discovers why, despite 40,000 miles of track built by the British, engineers steered clear of this perilous route. ...more details
Riding the DCR Spoil Train - New Cab Ride on DVD & Blu-ray
Cab ride: Calvert to Willesden via Claydon, Bicester, Oxford and Reading.
One of the freight highlights of 2013 was the use of DCR Class 56 locomotives on spoil trains between Willesden and Calvert. From Willesden, trains were normally routed via the Chilterns, passing Princes Risborough and Aylesbury and on to the old Great Central route to Calvert itself. This journey has already been released as a cab ride (Code: TC091).
This second cab ride features a Class 56 over the less frequently used alternative route: north from Calvert, to Claydon and onto the partially closed Oxford-Bletchley line, via Bicester Town, Oxford, onto the Great Western Mainline via Didcot, Reading, Slough and Acton and then to Willesden.
Filmed on a fine sunny day in August 2013, 56091 is the train locomotive, hauling a rake of empty JNA wagons.
With the Oxford – Bicester - Bletchley section now completely closed – being upgraded as part of the new East West Rail Link - this journey can never be repeated and shows the run-round move at Claydon and the entire freight-only section to Bicester and onto Oxford.
As well as the cab ride itself, we pass a number of passenger and freight trains and there is a thrash camera located in the rear cab, recording the 56 hard at work. ...more details
Riding the DCR Coal Train - York to Butterwell
Riding the DCR Coal Train - York to Butterwell
The East Coast Mainline north from York may not be the most exciting railway, it’s mostly flat, 4-track then 2-track and there’s not a great deal to see! That image changes somewhat when you add a Class 56, hauling a heavy coal train, running at speed, passing Darlington, Durham and Newcastle and onto the single-track Butterwell branch and then further along the line to Potland Burn and the coal-loading facility.
This is a cab ride on board 56312, filmed on a fine sunny day in August 2013, featuring the entire 102 mile journey. Departing from York Holgate sidings, we take the station avoider and run alongside various Class 91s, HSTs and other freight trains to Butterwell Junction and onto the freight-only line to Potland Burn.
As well as the journey itself, the run-round move at Potland Burn is featured, plus coal loading and loco refuelling. A special thrash cam in the back cab of the 56 records the loco hard at work. Includes maps, part narration and on-screen captions. ...full details
