NEW! Winter 2023/24 DVD Catalogue.

It's the time of year when the new releases come thick and fast and with so much coming out AND a lot more books, we've gone bigger, with a bumper 48-page catalogue!

New releases include Big Freight 29; a cab ride on a Class 97 on the Cambrian Timber train; a cab ride on a HST from Glasgow to Dundee and another on board a Class 397 EMU from Edinburgh to Carlisle.

There are some great new steam titles as well including Welsh Narrow Gauge in the 1950s and 1960s and A Decade of Steam looking at the Big Four. No.15 in the very popular British Transport film series is out in December and there's a second Blu-ray compilation.

Heading further afield we're pleased to announce that the programmes made by Belhurst over the last 20-years are going through the upscale and remaster process. We start with ten titles, covering China, South Africa, France and Germany.

Add Class 86s, HSTs, EMUs, DMUs, trams, buses and some top quality books and it's another action packed catalogue. Look out for some £9.95 DVDs and 3 for 2 offers.

Blackpool and the Trams 2024 Calendar

Our 2024 calendar is now in stock.

Our 2024 Blackpool Tram Calendar once again features 13 superb images from the years 1968 to 1985 as featured in our Blackpool Trams 1968-1985 book.

The calendar is A3 sized, spiral bound showing one month at a time. Printed on glossy paper in full colour, to the same high standard as always, it is available from this website and the Blackpool Tram Shop. Click here to order.

2024 marks the 30th anniversary of Train Crazy railway videos and DVDs. Starting out as a hobby in 1994, then a full-time job from 1998, over the last three decades, just about every type of locomotive and unit has featured, with more than 400 passenger, freight, cab ride and tram titles, released on VHS tape, DVD, Blu-ray and download.

Starting now in 2023 - to mark the occasion - a series of special low-price compilation DVDs and Blu-rays are being produced using the original film shot 30 years ago, right up to more recent times. Presented in a class-by-class format, and delving deep into the archives, some of this footage has been released before on VHS tape, some on DVD and some has never been seen at all.

Here's the good bit... In the last few years, software to restore old grainy and wobbly film has become more accessible. Previously it was expensive, slow and not very good, but in 2022 huge advances were made. The old film used on these new compilation programmes is all being reworked, improved, cleaned up and upscaled. For the first time, all of the film shot in standard-definition (720 x 576 or less) can be upscaled and presented in top-quality high-definition (1920 x 1080).

Long gone and long scrapped EMUs, DMUs, 31s, 37s, 47s, 86s and many other locos and coaches which were only ever filmed in SD, can now be appreciated in full HD! Whether on DVD or Blu-ray, the picture quality of this new series is better than anything seen before, of trains filmed in the same era.

The fourth release features Train Crazy film of the Class 86 locomotives from the period 1994 to 2021. The 86 needs little introduction and locos are featured far and wide including West Coast, Cross Country and Anglia passenger duties as well as West Coast container and mail trains. More than 50 different locos are featured wearing a rainbow of liveries - from Inter City and Virgin to the numerous Freightliner colours, RES and a few celebrities.  

Presented in a no-nonsense format of on-screen captions with unit number, location and date, sit back and enjoy some top-quality action from up to 30 years ago - with much-improved picture quality and in HD for the very first time! This is far from a complete record of these units during these years but this is what was filmed, now re-edited, re-worked and upscaled.
