About this deal

This film takes a look at clash between the Bradley Manor and the Earl Bathurst engines for the Torbay Express route between Bristol and Kingswear.

Way back in the 1960s, when steam was on the way out, a group of kids decided they simply weren’t prepared to let the Merchant Navy class die – so they bought one straight out of BR ownership! You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Although he does not understand a lot of the narrative, the DVD contains some excellent footage of the Scotsman as it travels around the country, which he is transfixed by.With dozens of lineside locations and aerial sequences, it's one of the most complete records of an engine ever captured on film. Travel in our authentic 1960s vintage Pullman restaurant cars, First or Tourist classes all with large picture windows to enjoy the views. Officialdom decreed that examples should be preserved for posterity thus creating a fantastic legacy of locomotives big and small for future generations to relish. These are the locomotives that not only shaped global transport history but steered the evolution of the modern world, shrinking continents and making rapid transit between one-time faraway places an everyday occurrence affordable to all. Choosing and captioning this superb selection of top-quality images from their collection, the majority never before published, has enabled Neil to recapture the pleasure and variety of that now distant era.

The film takes a look at the engine’s performance on that trip including detailed footplate and lineside coverage as the crew worked to get the most out of the mixed-traffic engine. We join the footplate crew for live action commentary of the engine at work and go behind the scenes with the men who care for the West Country Bulleid. The titles are: 'Flying Scotsman', 'City of Truro', 'Duchess of Sutherland', 'Princess Margaret Rose' and 'Super Power British Pacifics'. TTamer-Collection is based in a seaside town in North Wales and was founded in January 2017 so is a fairly new business which is always looking for ways to improve from the heart of its business. Certain items can take longer to source than the estimated week, particularly during busy trading periods and may take longer to arrive at our warehouse.

Today, from the Sprinter speeding through the West Riding to Manchester Airport, we get only hints of that world, buried beneath the greenery — or the industrial estates — which have grown up over the old goods yards. We are able to send untracked parcels to bona fide PO Box addresses, friends and family members and to work addresses.
