RELEASES. . . .
years ago we released our ‘Vac Attack’ cab ride programme, which
featured the West Coast Main Line from Glasgow to Crewe. Thanks to the
generous assistance of GB Railfreight, we have finally been able to
complete the remaining 158 miles of this fascinating route. As was the
case with ‘Vac Attack’ (which featured Class 50s) this programme also
features authentic heritage WCML traction which regularly worked the
route in BR days – a Class 86 AC electric. The locomotive is 86101,
which is owned by the AC Locomotive Group and is on long term hire to
GBRf. The loco was having a rare break from its Caledonian sleeper empty
stock duties, working the Crewe to Euston leg of GB Railfreight’s
‘Absent Shunter’ charity train on 13th August of this year.
The route south from Crewe is via
Stafford and the Trent Valley (Tamworth and Nuneaton) to Rugby. From
there the train travels through Long Buckby to Northampton before
re-joining the main line at Hanslope Junction. The journey south
continues through Milton Keynes, Leighton Buzzard and Tring before
entering the London suburbs where it passes Watford Junction, Wembley
yard and Willesden TMD before reaching its destination at London Euston.
This programme is due for release in
mid-October priced at £19.95.
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 ... ...
