**UPDATE 08/01/2015**


Our first title of 2014 is a look back at some of the highlights of 2014 that took place on the Mainline. Click Here to see what we captured in 'Mainline Diary 2014'

The first of our new series, 'Steam Driver's Eye View' features 34046 'Braunton' running on the fast line between Waterloo & Worting Junction, and is available to buy now. Click Here for more details.
We hope to make more of these unique videos as soon as we get the chance!

We are very please to annouce we have a new title in the form of the unique Steam Driver's Eye View. Having already featured the jouurney from Plymouth-Exeter with '5029 Nunney Castle' (see Z48 - a weekend to remember), we are pleased to feature a new route; 34046 'Braunton' running along the London & South Western Mainline out of Waterloo on the down fast line.

We have completed production of the West Somerset Railway Autumn Steam Gala 2014 commemorating the 50th anniversary of the closure of Taunton shed. CLICK HERE for more details on the program.

We were out covering the Dawlish Airshow with many highlights during the day. None more so that the appearance of a pair of Avro Lancaster Bombers. The WWII Duo performed a memorable flypast and display, along with their Spitfire & Hurricane escorts from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight. See Video Below:

We are pleased to announce that we will be doing producing a film on the commemorative runs of Z48, the 'GREAT WESTERN HIGH SPEED SPECIAL TRAIN', that took place on the weekend of May 9th & 10th 2014, (exactly 50 years to the day).
We feature full coverage of GWR Castles, Nos. 5029 'Nunney Castle' & 5043 'Earl of Mount Edgcumbe' on their respective tours, with some sensational running from both engines, including a record breaking run for the latter.

This film will include:
- A brief look back at Archive footage from the original run on 9th May 1964.
- Interviews with the loco crews of both commemorative runs.
- Interviews with passengers & the last surviving fireman from the original run.
- A detailed on-train journey along the original route, including the climb to Whiteball, the sea wall section at Dawlish and
  Teignmouth, and over the Devon Banks to Plymouth.
- 5029 and 5043 passing each other on the Mainline.
- A rich mixture of lineside, on-train and footplate scenes combined with dramatic soundtracks and high speed running.

This will almost certainly be one film you will not want to miss out on!


09/05/2014 & 10/05/2014

What a fantastic weekend with Two Castles over the Devon Banks, commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Ian Allan Great Western High Speed Railtour on May 9th 1964. After such a fantastic event all we can simply say is a big thank you to everyone.
Keep watching this space for further details, as we hope to have a film out of these fantastic runs very soon!


60007 Sir Nigel Gresley became the first steam hauled train to along the Sea Wall since it's repair from the battering at the start of the year. We decided, in keeping up with 'Bittern - The Need for Speed', to do a high speed pacing sequence of No.7. The full sequence available in our 2014 Mainline Diary review. In the mean time, enjoy some extracts from the pacing sequence, the original recording lasted 9 minutes!


Spring Gala 2014 now available on DVD and Blu-Ray! Order your copy now!


The West Somerset Railway's Spring Steam Gala 2014 will have a distinctive Southern Railway feel, remembering the 'Withered Arm' and 'Atlantic Coast Express'. We will bring you full coverage from all 4 days including plenty of bonus material on DVD & Blu-ray.

After a troublesome summer with many trains cancelled due to fire risk, the Mainline Steam scene staggered on despite many problems. We saw locomotives, 34046 'Braunton' finally making back to the Mainline for the firs time since 1965. 5029 'Nunney Castle' on the Torbay Express' and the return of 70000 'Britannia' following it's accident in Norfolk. The highlight of 2013 was the high speed runs of 4464 'Bittern' and we feature the final two runs between York and Newcastle, and finally, York to Kings Cross. Many other highlights are included along the way, including our first look at 45699 'Galetea' working over Shap and southbound on the Settle & Carlisle.

Dear All.

We are pleased to announce that we have completed our filming of the 4464 'Bittern's 90mph runs and are working very hard in the editing department to get the documentary 'BITTERN: THE NEED FOR SPEED, ready for you in time for Christmas. If we’re not able to make this deadline, then you will most certainly have it in time for the New Year.

The events of the last 6 months with the cancellations and postponements have been well documented elsewhere and have resulted in the delay of us getting this film to you.

Once again we are very sorry for the delays and inconveniences this may have caused, but unfortunately these were all due to circumstances outside our control so thank you once again for bearing with us for all this time.

Kind Regards
Oldham Video Productions
