Our brand new Spring 2014 Catalogue is available now as a free PDF download or for if you would prefer a free printed copy, just contact us with your address and we'll put one in the post.
With (hopefully) the worst of the winter weather behind us and fine spring days on the horizon, 2014 looks like being a fascinating year for Britain’s railways. With the new Class 68s being delivered, more Class 70s on the way, plus the return to the mainline of more Class 20s, 37s, 47s, 56s and 60s, the diesel scene is booming right now. Add to this the best of mainline and preserved steam, anniversaries, railtours and galas and we’re looking pretty good!
Before spring and summer arrive, we also have two of the best Model Railway exhibitions of the year, the massive 3-day Glasgow event at the end of February and the big London festival at the end of March. Videoscene will be at both!
The resurgence in Britain’s railways has not been missed by the filmmakers and within the 32 pages of our new catalogue we have a great selection of new railway and transport DVDs for your viewing pleasure. Look out for some great new cab rides, various 2013 steam and diesel reviews, the 12th volume in the British Transport films series, No.35 in the best-selling Marsden Rail series and two great 2014 guide-books.
...and remember, any DVD, anywhere in the UK - post free - guaranteed!

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

Cab ride: Daventry to Wentloog - via Nuneaton, Bromsgrove, Gloucester and Newport.
This is a cab ride on 66433, filmed on a fine sunny day in September 2013, featuring the entire 141 mile journey. With 1100 tonnes and 29 of the ‘Less CO2’ and ‘StobartRail’ branded curtain-side containers in tow, the journey starts at the Daventry International Railfreight terminal near to Rugby and runs to the Wentloog container facility, situated between Newport and Cardiff in South Wales.

Taking a few freight-only curves and branches, the train avoids the centre of Birmingham, heading for Kings Norton and on to Bromsgrove. Running down the Lickey incline we continue on to Cheltenham, then Gloucester, along the banks of the River Severn to Severn Tunnel Junction, into Wales and then Newport and finally into Wentloog.
As well as the cab ride itself, we pass a staggering number and variety of passenger and freight trains as well as many major junctions and well-known locations, particularly in the Midlands.

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.

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
