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
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.
DVD PRICE REVIEW
From mid-January we have reduced
the prices of some of our older DVDs down to £14.95. The individual

our website. Also, some of the older Traction programmes – all those

£9.95. Postage & packing is still free
THE BLUEBELL CONNECTION
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

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 ... ...
