The Diesel & Electric Diaries Volume 3 - Railway DVD
This series of programmes will take us to classic stations, depots and other railway locations around Britain, where the locomotives, liveries and rolling stock are from an era that is now long gone.
Loco-hauled passenger and freight trains are in abundance, but we will see shunters and multiple units as well.
Volume 3 in the series of programmes takes us to three famous railway locations.
Chapter 1: Stockport station 1986-1991
Although the main route from Crewe to Manchester was electrified as long ago as 1960, Stockport has witnessed a great variety of traction over the years.
Hauled passenger trains are in the hands of Class 31s, 47s and even a Class 45, plus the AC electric fleet, while the freight turns produce 25s, 37s & 47s - oh and an 08 shunter!
On the unit front, there is an appearance by a Royal Mail liveried Derby dmu set and the good old Class 304 emus are still in service.
Chapter 2: Comprises a visit to Eastfiled diesel depot and Springburn Works in 1991, featuring Class 08, 20, 26, 27, 37, 47 & 90.
To Reading in the years 1987 & 1988, when Network South East ruled the roost on the local and outlying commuter services.
Cross country services were mostly, but not always, in the hands of 47s, and the freights produce 33s, 37s, 56s, 59s, and even 47901.
