The First DVD “British Steam in the 50’s & 60’s concentrates on the last two decades of Steam Operation on Britain’s Railways and features loads of fascinating footage taken by keen amateurs recording the end of an era in Britain’s history.

The Third DVD “The Very Best of Steam Today” concentrates on the efforts of some of today’s many heritage steam railway lines, without whose efforts many impressive machines would not still exist., and the opportunity to savour the nostalgic atmosphere of a steam railway and run through some very scenic countryside would have been lost ages ago. This DVD features action from some of the most popular and picturesque steam heritage lines including The Bluebell Line, The West Somerset Railway, The North Yorkshire Moors Railway, The East Lancashire Railway, The Keighley & Worth Valley Railway, The Llangollen Railway, The Great Central Railway, The Severn Valley Railway & The Ffestiniog Narrow Gauge Railway
