FLYING SCOTSMAN

This is the ultimate pictorial record of how the world s most famous express locomotive steamed triumphantly into the Millennium, reborn with far greater power than Sir Nigel Gresley could ever have imagined.

KING EDWARD I

Witness the most comprehensive coverage of a steam Railtour ever made as cameras at more than 50 locations followed the beautifully restored 6024 King Edward I from London to Bristol and back to Didcot.

CLAN LINE

Way back in the 1960s, when steam was on the way out, a group of young men decided they simply weren t prepared to let the Merchant Navy class die, so they bought Bulleid Merchant Navy Pacific 35028 Clan Line and she has since proved to be a brilliant flagship of the surviving Southerns.

BLACK FIVE

When a Black Five answered an SOS from the Mid-Hants Railway to work a Daylight Railtour outing from Alton to Bridgnorth, Stanier class 5MT 45407 presented the ex-Southern railway men with a fantastic opportunity to get to grips with what was considered the best mixed traffic engine built in Britain.

CASTLE & MANOR

When Manor-class locomotive 7802 Bradley Manor failed on the first of a series of Torbay Express excursions between Bristol and Kingswear, the race was on to prepare Castle class locomotive 5051 Earl Bathurst to take over.

DRIVING & FIRING THE WESTERN ENGINES

Believed to be the most comprehensive survey of Western steam power ever attempted, this stunning programme starts on the footplate of Rocket, before moving forward one hundred years to the GWR Pannier Tanks.

DRIVING & FIRING THE SOUTHERN ENGINES

From the diminutive Tank engines including the Terriers to the large, distinctive Bulleid express machines, follow a detailed examination of the many types of Southern locomotives demonstrated by the enginemen who worked them.

DRIVING & FIRING THE STANDARD ENGINES

When Britain s railways were nationalised in 1948, a decision was taken to standardise the design of all new locomotives in the hope that they would be cheaper to run and service in the age of post-war austerity. This DVD provides a detailed study of many of these engines at work.
