"Exeter is an important railway crossroads, marking the junction of the two traditionally rival West of England lines from Waterloo and Paddington. Today, at the beginning of a new era of competition on the railways, Exeter is once again served by rival companies. We see the Western route towards Taunton and down to Torbay, and the Southern line to Honiton, as well as the Exmouth and Barnstaple branches, and the freight line to Meldon. At the centre of it is Exeter St Davids station, where you can see trains for London leaving in opposite directions! Many aspects of the working of the railways in the Exeter area are covered in this programme, including memories of recent steam specials, and the last days of the well-loved Class 50 diesels." A fascinating insight for Train enthusiasts t...

Today we are in Karlsruhe in south-west Germany not far from France. Karlsruhe is a midsize city with approximately 300,000 people; it is the second-largest city (after Stuttgart) in the federal state of Baden-Württemberg. In Germany it is known for its excellent technical university, its Baroque palace as well as hosting Germany’s two highest courts: the Federal Constitutional Court and the German Supreme Court. It is also known for its expansive tram and light rail system, which achieved international recognition and gets copied around the world as the “Karlsruhe Model”. The city has 71 km of tram lines, which serve the city proper. This tram system is shared with a light rail system called “Stadtbahn Karlsruhe”, which has a system length of 262 km and reaches far beyond Karlsruhe itse...

One of York’s most anonymous buildings houses the railway’s engineering memory - an archive of around nine million records dating back to the 17th century, but still expanding to take in documents from the 13,000 or so live projects currently being pushed forward by Network Rail. All the great engineers are represented - Stephenson (both George and Robert), Locke, Barlow, Brunel - and a number of structures that helped to sharpen the cutting edge, such as the tubular girder bridges on the North Wales coast line. Also here are the title deeds for all the land and properly ever owned by the railway. But it would be wrong to regard Network Rail’s National Records Centre simply as a historical repository. Understanding how a structure was built and its subsequent evolution can help to explai...
Visitors to Peterborough have a treat in store at the Steamtown Heritage Rail Centre -- a Museum with an absolute difference. Peterborough was founded on the rail but times have moved on and now the Indian Pacific runs through the town but only stops on request. However, the history of the town during a guided tour of the Museum or after dark at South Australia's first and only Sound and Light Show. This magic light and sound spectacle tells the story of Steamtown, railways and the creation of Peterborough -- right thought to General McArthur's 1942 claim that he 'would return' while standing on the duckboard of a train about to pull out of Terowie -- and all while visitors are seated in an historic Transcontinental rail carriage.
May 11, 2017: We see QLine LRV 287 departing the carhouse to be stage along the line for the Official opening of Detroit QLine opening to the Public after 61 years after the last streetcar was removed.

The car is battery power as well having pantograph, but will run 60% of the line on Battery.

On Saturday 28 October Tornado ran at Didcot for a one-day event. The railmotor was also running and I am very thankful to the fireman for letting me have a cab ride for two round trips something that I will probably never get to do again. Also, I have included other bits of footage I took during the day. https://youtu.be/He4RCu5T4wk
