(HD) Classic West Coast Electrics at work
Now available in 1080p HD! Since electrification was completed in part in 1960 and fully in 1974, the West Coast Mainline from London Euston to Glasgow Central has featured some of the greatest diversity in Electric Locomotives in the world. Since the Class 81 locomotives rolled out of British Thomson-Houston's in Birmingham in 1959, the line has seen the following classes operate routinely along the route: - Class 81 (AL1): Designed by British Thomson-Houston, 25 examples, 100mph mixed use AC electric locomotive, in service 1959-1991 - Class 82 (AL2): Designed by Metropolitan-Vickers, 10 examples, 100mph mixed use later ECS AC electric locomotive, in service 1960 - 1987 - Class 83 (AL3): Designed by English Electric, 15 examples, 100mph mixed use later ECS AC electric locomotive, in service 1960 - 1989 - Class 84 (AL4): Designed by North British Locomotive Company, 10 examples, 100mph mixed use later ECS AC electric locomotive, in service 1960 - 1980 - Class 85 (AL5): Designed by British Railways' Doncaster Works, 40 examples, 100mph mixed use later freight only AC electric locomotive, in service 1961 - 1992 - Class 86 (AL6): Designed by English Electric, built at Doncaster and Vulcan Foundry, 100 examples, 110mph mixed use now freight AC electric locomotive, in service 1965 (- 2004 Passenger) - present (Freight) - Class 87: Designed by BREL Crewe Works, 36 examples, 110mph mixed use later passenger AC electric locomotive, in service 1973 - 2005 (see further use in Bulgaria) - Class 90: Designed by BREL Crewe Works, 50 examples, 110mph mixed use AC electric locomotive, in service 1987 - 2003 (West Coast Passenger services), 1987 - present (West Coast freight and other operations) Today the locomotive hauled days of the West Coast Mainline are now a memory as the mass introduction of the Class 390 tilting Pendolino units and the Class 221 Super Voyager units saw an end to many of these are working classes of locomotives. Thankfully, due to the hard work of enthusiast groups, many of these locomotives continued to be a frequent sight on the WCML on tours and preservation runs, reawakening the former glory days of these magnificent machines: - Class 81 - 85: Currently there are no operational examples in preservation although the AC locomotive group plans to return these locomotives to working order with a hope of seeing these return to the mainline. - Class 86: Freight operator Freightliner currently has 14 operational locomotives on its books and continues to be the only operator of the Class 86's in revenue earning service as of 2013. In preservation, the AC Locomotive Group and Electric Traction Limited currently own 5 locomotives (86401, 86101, 86701, 86702 and 86213) whilst private owner Les Ross owns a single example (86259). A recent report by ETL has stated that it has pulled out of mainline operations, leaving its fleet with the prospect of either scrapping or export. This will result in 86259 being the only mainline registered and operational Class 86 at work on the WCML outside of the Freightliner examples. - Class 87: Of the fleet of 36 locomotives, 3 are currently in preservation. 87001 now resides at the National Railway Museum, 87002 is owned by ETL but following the 2013 report it is expected to be sold to Bulgaria and join its fellow surviving classmates on freight duties there, and 87035 currently resides as a static exhibit at the Crewe Heritage Centre. - Class 90: Class 90's continue to be frequent operators on the WCML running the Caledonian Sleeper service from London to Glasgow and Edinburgh as well as working freight operations with DB Schenker and Freightliner. All other examples that formerly worked for Virgin West Coast now carry out operations for Greater Anglia on the Great Eastern Mainline whilst many former Railfreight Distribution examples reside at Crewe International Electric Maintenance Depot in long term storage. With that said, sit back and enjoy 20 or so minutes of non-stop AC Electric action!

Salon du modélisme, Miniaturland 2012 Cité du train Mulhouse. 3ème partie.
Cette 3ème partie de ce dimanche 30 septembre montre ce que je considère comme le meilleur et le plus réaliste réseau ferroviaire HO du salon. Cette vidéo a une durée de 10 minutes. J'aurai pu écourter mais vu la qualité et la beauté de ce réseau j'ai préféré ne pas en diminuer la longueur. Les fans de ce genre de modélisme regarderont certainement entièrement la vidéo et pour les autres visiteurs, rien n'empêche de sauter quelques scènes. Voici des explication de ce réseau que j'ai retranscrit du texte donnée par le modéliste anglais Peter North. Joachin Virginia. Ce réseau HO reproduit la ligne secondaire électrifiée de la Virginian Railway des années 50. Cette ligne a été créée en 1909 pour transporter le charbon des montagnes Appalaches situé dans le West Virginia. (Virginie-Occidentale à l'Est des Etats-Unis) Contrairement aux habitudes des chemins de fer américains, le "Mountain Zone" a été électrifié pour pouvoir tracter les convois de plus de 3000 tonnes sur les fortes pentes de la région. En sortant des montagnes, à Roanoke, Virginia, 3 à 4 convois étaient attelés en un seul convoi de 10 à 12000 tonnes pour continuer le voyage jusqu'à la côte Atlantique. Le Virginian railway a été acheté par le chemin de fer Norfolk and Western en 1960. En 1962 l'électrification de la ligne a été supprimée et les puissantes machines ont depuis disparues de la circulation. Vidéo enregistrée avec le Panasonic Lumix FZ200

Milwaukee Railroad Box Cab Electric Locomotives in Tacoma circa 1971
The Milwaukee Railroad kept some of its World War One EF-1 and EP-1 box cab electric locomotives active into the 1970s, as seen in Tacoma, Wash., circa 1971 in this brief vintage 8mm Kodachrome movie clip presented by Airailimages.

EO Movie
Kiwirail's EO Electric locomotives were the life blood of the Midland line in the South Island hauling coal trains through the steep Otira tunnel. But they were removed from service and left in storage for 12 years. This is the story of their new life helping out the over stretched commuter rail system in Wellington in the North Island. Enjoy

Finnish electric locomotive Sr1 / Sähköveturi Sr1
Finnish electric locomotive Sr1 Sr1 is the first electric locomotive of Finland. Maximum speed is 140 km/h. It has continous power rating of 3100 kW, one hour output of 3280 kW and unoffical power rating (1500V wagon electricity counted too) of about 5000 kW. Electric supply is 25 kV 50 Hz ac overhead wire. Traction motors are 4 DC /820 kW/motor (offical), controlled by Strömberg-manufactured (former Finnish company, nowadays part of ABB) thyristor power rectifier drive. It was ordered from USSR, mainly because of political reasons. It is manufactured in Novochserkassk Electric Locomotive Works, former USSR. First locomotives were delivered on year 1973. Last production model from factory was delivered on 1985. Two additional locomotives were built at the Hyvinkää Machine Workshop in 1993 and 1995, number 3111 from spare parts and number 3112 from the original prototype locomotive (number 3000) that was never used. The locomotives originally carried a dark red livery, with white stripes around and below the cab windows. The stripes were later replaced with yellow warning panels (resembling stylished wings) below the cab windows. From the early 1990s onwards this livery has been replaced by a white livery with red stripes. The nicknames for these locomotives are "Siperian susi" (Wolf of Siberia; it comes from the typical sound of Sr1, when it passes you can heard the "wolf crying" ; in Finnish slang "susi" can also mean a poorly manufactured object. Two Sr1 class locomotives have been damaged beoynd repair, number 3048 in an accident in Jokela in 1996 and number 3089 in an accident in Jyväskylä in 1998. There is a total 110 Sr1-class locomotives in service today. More information of locomotive: http://www.kotimaki.com/rautatie/rstock/sr1.shtml http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VR_Class_Sr1

Virginian (Coal Train/NS Unit), 07-23-2012

Steam Coal Drag in Hinton, West Virginia
Chesapeake and Ohio HO model Railroad in Bay Area of California. This layout is based upon the prototype and the Main Yard is Hinton West Virginia. You will see a cola drag coming into Hinton Yard, a helper engine added to the end of train in front of caboose and then the train going up the hill to other end of layout. Steam engines use Tsunami sound decoders and Digital system is NCE. (I taped this at 320 with 15 FPS and will record it again at higher resolution someday)
