About this deal

It is about time there was another made with higher resolution equipment but still a fantastic insight into the working of Clan Line with interviews from engine men who worked on her and other rebuilt merchant navy class locomotives before they were retired. Look beyond the number on the locomotive’s cabside and see something of that lost world: a world in which many thousands of dedicated men and women worked in difficult conditions to keep the freight and passenger trains moving and to keep Yorkshire at work; a world which affected the landscape of every town, village and workplace. As luck would have it, the only survivor of the V2 class, “Green Arrow”, had just come back from major surgery and she came to the rescue in spectacular fashion.

The result is a unique film, ‘A Day in the Life’ and ‘A Year in the Life’ - the star is “Flying Scotsman”. Wearing “The Bristolian” headboard, the King’s progress was followed by cameras at the lineside, on the footplate as well as from the air to capture the sights and sounds of a bygone era.What the railways have gained in efficiency as people carriers - which is, after all, what they are there for — they have lost in diversity. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. See how Castle class locomotive 5051 “Earl Bathurst” copes with a 75-mile an hour dash to the seaside as she stands in for 7802 “Bradley Manor” on the first of a series of Torbay Express excursions between Bristol and Kingswear. In 2005 a series of railway films were released on VHS (and later on DVD) under the combined title of Classic Steam Train Collection. What makes this film distinctive is that the engine is festooned with numerous cameras, including footplate coverage and footage from the air, with driver Colin KerswiU providing expert guidance of the engine at work.

It shows the preparation of the locomotive at Didcot the preceding day and also the preparation at Old Oak Common on the day of the trip.These are the locomotives that not only shaped global transport history but steered the evolution of the modern world, shrinking continents and making rapid transit between one-time faraway places an everyday occurrence affordable to all. Classic Steam Engines: Complete Collection Collection of documentaries celebrating classic steam engines.

A Superb Collection of Pictures: Specially Selected from the Archives of the Yorkshire Post Increase quantity for Classic Steam. 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 had ever envisaged. Thanks to the new formula, these paints can be applied with a brush to produce a smooth and uniform surface with very little effort. Legendary steam railway locomotives such as Flying Scotsman, Mallard, Stephenson’s Rocket and City of Truro have been household names for generations and are now owned by the public. City of Truro The 2000th locomotive to be built at the famous Swindon Works of the Great Western Railway was always going to be something a bit special.If there is going to be a significant delay (more than 10 working days), we will contact you and, where possible, give you an estimated dispatch time. VAT Relief for the disabled is a government scheme that allows the zero-rating of goods if certain conditions are met. Super Power British Pacifics One of the few positives to come out of the gloom of the inter-war years in Britain was the new breed of powerful steam locomotives. But change came fast in the 1960s, transforming the railway to a network of core passenger and freight services, operating — compared to the standards of the steam age — with a ruthless efficiency. Tells the story of classic steam locomotives including King Edward I, Green Arrow, Taw Valley, Flying Scotsman, Clan Line, and the Black Five, Castle and Manor classes, beautifully capturing the sights and sounds of a bygone era.
