Electric Current is what the title suggests - electric locos currently to be found on the national network. But, we couldn’t resist including some action from the last ten years as well . . . and three sections looking back at the late 1980s. The flashbacks aren't 'current' quality, obviously, but their content is stunning. Nostalgia quotient off the scale.
The current sections:
West Coast 1 - 86101 on tour, 90029 on an engineers train, DBS & Freightliner 90s on Virgin passenger work, triple-headed 92s . . and purely for the sake of nostalgia, an 87 leaving Euston pre-Pendolino.
Great Eastern - 90s on NatEx services, 86s on Anglia, plus Freightliner of course.
East Coast - The re-liveried 91101, 92009 in DBS red, ETS’s 86701 & 86702, 87s on mail and on tour, top & tail 90s and lots of 91s.
West Coast 2 - Double-headed DBS 90s, 87s on passenger, Stobart-liveried 92017 on the Tesco, 86637 working a liner single-handedly.
One - Class 85s in action.
Two - Class 91s' early years & 89001 on test.
Three - A day beside the West Coast Main Line. A huge variety of types, as you might expect.
73 minutes of sparkling 'sparky' action, written & narrated by David Maxey in a suitably reverential tone.
DVD features: Motion menus, scene selection, and ‘commentary off’ option.
