GWR Steam Railmotor

GWR Steam Railmotor at Bodmin & Looe 2012 and Western National Buses

The DVD begins with the visit to the Bodmin & Wenford Railway, including Bodmin Parkway and Boscarne Junction. There are scenes of firing, lineside and on train photography. The Liskeard-Looe line is covered in depth. Thames Valley and Great Western Omnibus Trust preserved Western National buses, compete with the Steam Railmotor in true Titfield Thunderbolt style. On reaching Looe there is a short tour of the town, banjo pier and a trip across to West Looe on the ferry. The return journey is equally impressive with a race through Sandplace before completing the journey in the dark at Liskeard. The sound is crystal clear and the night shots of the service train leaving the Looe branch earlier in the film are equally atmospheric. It should be noted that there is no commentary as this is a purely photographic record with natural recorded sound. A comprehensive coverage of this historic occasion.

Available price 12 (UK post and packing 2. Overseas 3)

DVD-R running time approximately 30 minutes.

Order from R. Jordan GWS Bristol Group secretary, 21 High Street, Wick, BRISTOL BS30 5QJ. Please make cheques payable to R. Jordan.
