What the Press say..........

For most enthusiasts the chance to board a time machine to re-visit one of Britain's major railway centres is one invention we wished existed. However, at least we have film taken by enthusiasts back in the days when a large variety of different types of locomotive were at work on a daily basis.

The scenes in this DVD have been digitally edited and include on-screen detailed captions of the date, locomotive number and train working. There's a clear but brief commentary. The film quality is good with correct rendition of colours, whilst care has clearly been taken during the original filming of the scenes. The sound quality is excellent and really evokes the period.

Volume 8 starts at Southampton in the years 1986 to 1988 with plenty of Class 33s, 47s, 50s and 73s on both passenger and freight workings together with some EMU action.

In the next chapter there's a visit to Tinsley in 1992 with views both inside and outside the depot.

Finally, there's a look at Warrington in the period 1986-1991, with it's busy station at Bank Quay, and the extensive freight yards. Classes 20, 25, 31, 37, 45 and 47 appear on passenger and freight workings together with the full range of electric locomotives.
