Description

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.

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 fifth release features Train Crazy film of the Class 141 to 158 DMUs, filmed between 1994 and 2002. The Pacer and The Sprinter were the names given to the first batch of second generation DMUs, first introduced in the 1980s. Filmed countrywide we see the early liveries carried by these units with the short-lived 141s working around Leeds. Classes 141, 142, 143, 144, 150, 153, 155, 156 and 158 are included.

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 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.
