We are pleased to announce that the long-established and best-selling BIG FREIGHT series is going twice yearly!
Due to customer feedback and quite simply, due to the sheer amount of freight flows in the UK right now and other factors such as the rebirth of the class 56 and 60 locomotives, one DVD per year (every November) was just not enough!
Starting right now, BIG FREIGHT will be twice yearly – every May and November and if you’ve been following this series, you’ll know you are going to get TWO hours crammed full of superb freight action from all over the country – and it’s also available on Blu-ray!
This programme includes:
37419 and its epic trip to Mallaig with a ballast train in stunning West Highland winter weather of snow capped peaks and brilliant sunshine.
Part three of our look at the Fiddlers Ferry to Liverpool coal circuit with Class 60s on the freight-only Bootle branch to the docks.
Snow freight: Footage from Peak Forest and various locations in Scotland with heavy freight battling the worst of the snowy weather.
Action from a number of Freightmaster hotspots including a summer and winter visit to Colton Junction, Basford Hall (Crewe), Float Viaduct (Carstairs), the Great Eastern main line and how many container trains run on the Felixstowe branch?
Plus a number of unusual workings including engineers trains, Network rail measurement trains and the day 37610 and 37605 worked the 4S44 Daventry to Coatbridge intermodal.
All sections are introduced with full commentary and maps. Filmed in 16:9 widescreen. So much more than just train after train running past the camera!
Please note: The footage on Big Freight 9 is not the leftovers from No.8! This is all brand new footage, filmed in the summer, autumn and winter of 2012 and into spring 2013. It has never been used before and is not available anywhere else – GUARANTEED!
The DVD is £19.95, or if you prefer you can select the Blu-ray format at £22.95. Please note you will need a Blu-ray player or PlayStation 3 to play a Blu-ray disc.
