Western! - Railway DVD
Produced by Foretrak Pictures, this programme features wonderful scenes from the early hydraulic years and includes the whole range of ‘Western’ liveries as the D1000s share space with other diesel-hydraulic types. The film also includes interviews with ex-BR staff involved in the introduction of the ‘Westerns’ and with acknowledged expert Adrian Curtis. This gives us a fascinating insight into the thoughts and motives behind the ‘Western’ project and even the choice of names for the locomotives.
