September and two great releases in our vast library - Our freight is an interesting journey from Peterborough to Barnby Dun - where is Barnby Dun yes ask - well its a freight line that runs from Kirk Sandall on the line across to Scunthorpe and Goole from Sheffield & Rotherham. GBRf140 is a double dvd running time 144 mins.
September's passenger is recent footage as a return journey from Liverpool Lime Street to Stafford taking in of course all those tunnels on departure from Lime Street and through Runcorn. After Runcorn there is Halton Jn where of course we filmed the Saturday only service to Chester (our NR76) - Liverpool Lime Street Diversionary & Parliamentary Trains !! Travelling in the cab of a Pendolino Class 390 is an interesting experience as the dvd footage will show ! VT05 is a single dvd running time of 100 minutes @ £21.99.
Our passenger release in August was the penultimate in the Welsh journeys. Milford Haven (end of the line) to Carmarthen, then reversing Llanelli and terminating at Swansea is a delightful trip - ATW23 @ £21.99. Aboard a Class 175 (2 car unit) it was interesting in west Wales that there are so many single tracks beyond Clarbeston Road and Whitland. Whitland Jn is the turning for Pembroke Dock - the track is dualed to Clarbeston Road but here the track divides turning left for the Milford Haven 'Single' or ahead for the Fishguard 'Single'. On this journey from Milford Haven we have a passing loop at Haverfordwest and of course once into Carmarthen we change ends for Llanelli and Swansea. With a running time of 96 mins, the final piece in the Welsh routes jigsaw !!
The August freight is our GBRf139 - Purley to Luton footage aboard a Class 66 loco. An interesting route via South Croyden and Crystal Palace through Tulse Hill and Brixton and Longhedge Jns via Clapham then out to New Kew and Acton Wells before the midland lines at St Albans and Harpenden. The freight service was for Wellingborough.
