Fantastic video of the trans-Pennine routes, Colin. The Woodhead footage, WITH SOUND, is amazing. It's great to see, and hear, the Class 76s in action, hear a Class 123/4 pulling away, and see a Class 13 doing what it was designed to do.

Thanks for taking the time and effort to allow us to watch these online. Add my name to the list for a DVD of the HD stuff!

Some lovely stuff on that one. Seriously though, nearly 1700 feet up in February?

I’ve posted this one elsewhere, but in case you missed it.

 

I took my Dad over to the Harz Mountains earlier this month on a trip organised by Ffestiniog Travel. Due to the amount of snow, the line up the Brocken was closed, however, we got plenty of 2-10-2T action, trips on metre gauge railcars, involved in an accident which in turn resulted in steam substituting for a railcar which gave me perhaps my best ever steam shot.

Staying in Germany, the latest one shows railways around the Hamburg area in 2017.

I've finally got the next cine film converted, Diesels in Scotland 1983. I was a bit disappointed with the quality of this one, but I hope you enjoy it.

I’ve only just come across this thread and very much enjoyed yesterday’s film. It took me back to childhood holidays in Scotland and I have stood watching trains go by at many of the locations you visited. Many thanks for sharing these!

Thanks for posting your brilliant film. I did a Railrover around Scotland in August 1983 so this brought back so many memories. Great stuff!

...and the much criticized (at the time) blue-grey livery looked absolutely superb when clean - especially on the mk3s!

Here is the latest cine film I've had digitised, Rail 1983.

 

It includes, the last Harwich Boat Train at Romiley, Welsh Marches Express (with run pasts, remember them?), Strathspey Railway, Bo'ness Railway, North Yorkshire Moors Railway, Steamport Southport,Dinting Railway Centre and Rail Riders Deltic Day Out. I've upgraded my Vimeo account so its in HD. I've had a couple of people asking if they can download my video's, you should be able to although you might need to get a vimeo account first (the basic level is free).

I few weeks ago I headed south west with my camcorder to film the Westbury stone trains before the contract passed from DB to Freightliner and the class 37s on the Rhymney branch. Also captured new IETs, GWR’s ‘short’ HSTs and some Welsh pacers. Hope you enjoy it.

I’ve now digitised my very first cine film, Rail 1982 & 1983, obviously the quality has improved since then. 

 

Its 30 minutes long and includes scenes just outside Paddington, KWVR, Midland Railway Centre, various steam specials, the very last BR Deltic run and Dinting Railway Centre.

Another great film Colin.

I knew why the cl. 50s were called 'Hoovers' but that's the first time I've actually heard the sound!

I have seen many other videos of them but only after refurbishment (when they lost the air filtration system)
