Traction 2018 Part 1

The early indications are that this looks like being another cracking programme, proving the old adage – ‘never say never on the privatised railway’. Among the many eye-popping workings you can expect to see will be – the first Crompton to work on the Windermere branch (and service trains at that!), the first Class 50-hauled passenger train round the Cumbrian coast, 70814 on biomass trials with GB Railfreight, classmate 70811 working the ‘Scarborough Spa Express’, 47501 & 47805 return to the main line with Crewe-based Locomotive Services, 37521 is back on the main line after an absence of fourteen years, DRS’ 37716 on Peak Forest shunting duties, GBRf’s 66789 emerges from Eastleigh Works in Large Logo livery while 66783 is out-shopped in striking Biffa livery, 57316 hauling a track machine from Dundee to Guide Bridge, former GWR HST power cars transfer to Scotrail, 66304 rescuing a failed Freightliner on Beattock, ROG Class 47s hauling new Trans Pennine coaching stock to Longsight, 47580 hauling a ballast regulator from Guide Bridge to Dollands Moor, BR blue Class 20s leaving London Victoria and then arriving at Kings Cross on a wedding special, Swanage-based 33012 working over London Underground’s Metropolitan Line, 50008 hauling a rake of box wagons from Eastleigh to Wembley, ROG’s 37608 rescuing a DB cargo stone train at Clapham Junction, Northern Belle-liveried 57305+57312 on the Barrow-Sellafield flasks, 47813 hauling a rake of covered steel carriers, 70807 deputising for a failed Class 37 on a Colas test train, 55009 working the ‘Albert Gilmour Memorial’ charter from Newcastle to Kings Cross, the brief return of Corfe Castle-Wareham main line shuttles with 20007, 33012, 50049 & 66783, the long-awaited return to traffic of 40012 at the East Lancs Railway’s Class 40 gala…and DRS Class 37s and Colas Class 56s on winter snowplough duties.
Naturally, plenty more fascinating workings, traction developments, freight traffic changes and preservation highlights will complete a riveting 100 minutes of unrivalled modern traction coverage from the first six months of this year. We hope to have Traction 2018 Part 1 available for release in mid-August, priced at £19.95.


From mid-January we have reduced the prices of some of our older DVDs down to £14.95. The individual programme pages with the revised prices have been updated accordingly on our website. Also, some of the older Traction programmes – all those from T2003 Part 1 to T2010 Part 2 – have seen a price reduction down to £9.95. Postage & packing is still free


In March 2013, we filmed and produced a cab ride for the Bluebell Railway on board the first through train from London Victoria to Sheffield Park since 1963. This was made possible by the re-opening of the line between East Grinstead and Kingscote. It was filmed from the cab of GB Railfreight’s 66739 and is narrated by David Maxey. The 110-minute DVD of this historic journey from London can be purchased directly from the Bluebell Railway by clicking the link below…


This is the fourth programme that Locomaster have produced exclusively for The Fifty Fund to help raise money for the group. This 110-minute DVD covers the progress of 50031 Hood, 50035 Ark Royal, 50044 Exeter and 50049 Defiance over the seven year period from 2006 to 2012. Far from being confined to preserved railways, most of the footage covers the locos in action on the main line. And there’s no shortage of Class 50 thrash either! It is available now, so why not help contribute to a worthy cause (Class 50 repairs don’t come cheap!) by purchasing a copy of this DVD? We can even give you the link to the Fifty Fund website ... ...
