Commuter Trains of the 21st Century #1 - Class 67s

The first title in a brand new four-part series looking at commuter trains across the UK features the Class 67 hauled trains.

Originally built to haul mail trains, latterly found working charter and sleeper trains, the class 67 locomotive has had a chequered history but in the last few years, thanks to DMU shortages, the locos have taken on a new role - hauling commuter trains. Operated by three different train companies, in three very different parts of the country and wearing (at least) three different liveries, the class 67 now has daily booked passenger work, primarily taking commuters to and from work. Working out of Marylebone (Chiltern), Holyhead (Arriva Wales) and Edinburgh (Scotrail) this programme takes a detailed look at the current operations of the class 67 hauled passenger trains.

A Day at Carlisle

The third title in the Sunrise Sunset UK series is filmed at the border city of Carlisle on Saturday 15th September 2012. This was no ordinary day as in addition to the regular flow of locos and units, passenger and freight passing through this popular West Coast Main line hotspot, engineering work on the East Coast Main line meant that all East Coast passenger and freight trains which would normally run north of Newcastle were diverted via the Tyne Valley line and through Carlisle station. From the very familiar Pendolinos and Voyagers, came the less familiar East Coast HSTs and Class 91-hauled sets plus a whole host of other freight trains too.
