project that has been eighteen months in the making is at long last
available. TRACTION DECADE features the very best of the first 10 years of
the TRACTION series which started back in 1995. Because of the volume of
footage, this programme has a running time of three-and-a-half hours.
Hence it is a double-disc DVD set. We shan’t even begin to attempt to
list what’s on it, but if you’ve been collecting the series over the
years you’ll have a good idea of what to expect. If you’ve yet to
sample any of these highly-acclaimed programmes, it’s a great way of
having the first 10 years all in one DVD box. Suffice to say, given the
changes that have happened to the modern traction fleet over the past ten
years, the content is, quite simply, staggering! In it you will see 10
years of…Rescues, Passenger substitutes, Freight substitutes, Off the
beaten tracks, Arrivals, Farewells & departures, Liveries…and
features no fewer than 30 classes of diesel and electrics at work on the
national network the length and breadth of Britain, from the humble 03
through classes 08, 09, 20, 31, 33, 37, 40, 43, 45, 46, 47, 50, 52, 55,
56, 57, 58, 59, 60, 66, 67, 71, 73, 86, 87, 89, 90, 92 to the French Class
22000’s. As if that’s not enough, if also features a staggering 70
different locomotive liveries!
Although this is a
‘best of’, it is in fact a brand new programme as we have not only
sourced all the original footage and digitally enhanced it, but it comes
with a new and lively script which has been written and narrated by David
Maxey. The programme also contains previously unseen footage as well as a
few surprises in the running order!
DVD set is available priced at £19.95 (post free).
