Some of our older DVDs are now priced at £14.95. The individual programme pages with the revised prices have been updated accordingly on our website.

From 4th-6th October 2018, the Severn Valley Railway staged an ambitious and hugely successful diesel gala to celebrate fifty years of the English Electric Class 50. The SVR is now the spiritual home of the Fifties and at sixteen miles long it was the perfect location to stage this landmark event. This 110-minute DVD not only includes lineside footage of all ten locos in action, but also features the sold-out evening of talks covering the history of these iconic locos, from their introduction on the London Midland Region in 1967 to the current preservation era. The talks were given by three noted Class 50 experts - David Clough, Geoff Hudson and Jonathan Dunster.

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…
