Description

Relive the adorable Terriers, the splendour of a Bulleid Pacific, a rare GWR Mogul and the charm of a GWR Branch Line. 

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A TERRIER
Kicked off the London commuter trains, Stroudley’s immortal A1Xs found sanctuary in half-forgotten corners of the southern network. This documentary is a fitting tribute to the Terriers, some of the most adorable yet eccentric engines ever built.

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A BULLEID PACIFIC
Follow the unrebuilt Pacific 34067 “Tangmere” as she heads a mainline railtour on the Torbay Express service to Kingswear. Despite testing conditions, the crew remained quietly confident that their 7P machine would equal the output of any Class 8 engine. Watch thrilling footage of one of the busiest steam engines working in Britain.

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A GWR MOGUL
Moguls were the most numerous of the GWR tender classes and arguably the most useful. A go-anywhere machine, they were found on everything from heavy freights to emergency express work. This film follows a day in the life of a surviving Mogul, 5322, from oiling up to disposal at Didcot.

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A GWR BRANCH LINE
This is a dawn-to-dusk account of South Devon Railway’s 40th anniversary celebrations. The old single-track branch line had never been busier with everything from double-headed freight workings to distinctive GWR autotrains.
