Ever since we produced our first cab ride programme in 1994, our cameras have filmed around fifty subsequent journeys. For a variety of reasons not all of them have seen the light of day, but among the many hours of tape lying on the cutting room floor is some really interesting, unusual and – in most cases - historical footage. Most importantly, all the material is previously unreleased. ‘Short Cuts’ will feature six mini cab rides filmed on six different traction types, ranging from a 1961-built Class 20 and a 1984-built Class 58 to a modern high speed Virgin Pendolino. Equally, there is contrasting landscapes and routes, from rural branch lines to busy main lines.

Filmed between 2001 and 2017 the six journeys are – HOLYHEAD to BANGOR on board 57309; HOPE CEMENT WORKS to EARLES?SIDINGS with 20056; ACTON WELLS to WEMBLEY YARD on 58025; KILMARNOCK to BARRHEAD featuring Deltic 55022; EUSTON to WATFORD JUNCTION on Virgin Pendolino 390126, and finally READING to BASINGSTOKE on board 66082.

With a running time of around 1 hour 50 minutes, this programme is scheduled for release in early June 2018 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 ... ...
