The Best of British Steam Compilation 2013
It's hard to believe that another year has simply rolled by, but in that time it's been a fantastic ride in terms of steam tours. 2013 has seen the return of many a great locomotive, such as the return of 34046 'Braunton' to the mainline, and the return of 45699 'Galatea' to steam altogether! So here I give you my collection of some of the finest examples of steam to grace the British Rail network, seen in locations that vary from the peaceful preserved lines of Devon and Cornwall, to the snow covered slopes of the Cumbrian Lake District, to the sunny seaside resorts of the Teignmouth Sea Wall. This video features all kinds of steam engines from all of the great operators of yesteryear, including 5029 'Nunney Castle', 34067 'Tangmere', 7827 'Lydham Manor', 70000 'Britannia' and her sister 70013 'Oliver Cromwell', 60009 'Union of South Africa', 35028 'Clan Line', 46115 'Scots Guardsman', 61994 'The Great Marquess' and many many more! In the next 45 minutes there's going to be steam, smoke, whistles, wheel-slips, breakneck speed, hissing safety valves, raw power and pollution, snarling pistons, flying driving rods and general fun for the whole family! So, let's get cracking! Enjoy!





Steam Train struggles on 1 in 48 grade. SRV Robinvale Weekender: Australian Trains
Over the 2000 Melbourne Cup weekend, Steamrail operated a weekend tour to Robinvale in the north of the state with steam locomotives K190 and D3 639. I chased the down special on the Saturday morning as far as Maryborough. The video starts with several shots of the locos struggling up the 1 in 48 Ingliston bank followed by shots at the down end of Bank Box Loop, Ballan, North Creswick and Maryborough. © 2000 James Brook





Double Headed Hudsons on Wycheproof Wayfarer steam tour: Australian Trains
On 17 May 2003, Steamrail Victoria ran a day tour to Wycheproof via Ballarat and return via Bendigo. The train featured double headed R class "hudson" 4-6-4 steam locomotives R761 and R707. Unfortunately, the train lost it's path early in the day on the Ballarat line and got to Wycheproof at dusk, several hours late. This meant that most of the photo stops were cancelled, with the exception of Wychitella and Charlton. This video features both photo stops as well as several shots on Wycheproof's main street, one of only two locations left in Australia where trains run down the middle of the road. This would end up being the last of the classic long steam day tours with photo stops. While there were some shorter tours run later in 2003, by the following year the demise of West Coast Railway combined with the public liability crisis both contributed to the end of a tradition on railfan tours that was enjoyed by many. Nobody ever got seriously injured during photo stops and with proper organisation it was a perfectly safe activity. Unfortunately the beurocrats and people in power see otherwise and like so many things we used to take for granted in this country, it no longer exist. I think society as a whole is much worse off because of the every increasing nanny state where people must be protected from their own stupidity. © 2003 James Brook





Steam Trains by the Seaside - Bellarine Railway: Australian Trains
The Bellarine Peninsula Railway operates a collection of 3'6" gauge locomotives and rolling stock from railway systems all over Australia along a re-gauged section of the former Queenscliff branch line south west of Geelong. This video features former Pozieres haulng the norning service to Drysdale and return follwed by the shuttle to Lakers Siding and then shunting at Queenscliff. Pozieres was formerly a Broken Hill Associated Smelters shunting locomotive at Port Pirie in South Australia. It was built by Andrew Barclay, Sons & Co for the British War department and was one of four sold as war surplus to BHAA in 1919. The locomotive is named after a WWI battlefield on the western front in France. Pozieres had been preserved static at the Puffing Billy museum at Menzies Creek, but was transferred to the Bellarine Railway in 2010 and found to be in good condition. Therefore it was returned to service by late 2011 by the volunteers at the Bellarine Railway. © 2011 James Brook





Maldon Steam Spectacular - Saturday 26th October 2013 - Part 1 of 3
On Saturday 26th October 2013, Steamrail Victoria in conjunction with the Victorian Goldfields Railway chartered a steam train double headed by Hudson R761 and K190 to travel from Melbourne to Castlemaine and Maldon. The purpose of the day was to exchange locomotive D3 639, which had been on loan to the Victorian Goldfields Railway since June and swap it over with K190. During the day, visitors had the chance to ride behind 5 steam locomotives, these being R761, K190, D3 639, J515 and recently restored J549. Several photostops were organized during the day, allowing passengers to capture the sights and sounds of double headed steam locomotives on the branch line. The return trip back to Melbourne was haulded by locomotives R761 and D3 639, with the Victorian Goldfields Railway owned J549 running alongside on departure from Castlemaine.





Snow Train 2013 with Hudson Steam Engine R761: Australian Trains
On 22 June 2013, Steamrail Victoria ran the first of their annual "Snow Trains" for the year from Newport to Traralgon. For those wondering why there's no snow in the shots, the train gets it's name from a side trip offered to the snowfields at Mt Baw Baw. The train was hauled by hudson express passenger steam locomtive R761 hauling 8 vehicles comprising heritage timber or steel carriages dating from the 1920's to the 1950's. The weather for the trip was superb with very cold but clear winter air and no wind, resulting in a top quality soundtrack to go with the visuals. © 2013 James Brook

Big Boy 4014 Steam Train - The Road to Restoration: Pomona to Colton
In July of 2013, the Union Pacific Railroad reacquired Big Boy steam locomotive number 4014 from the Rail Giants Train Museum at the Pomona Fairplex with the intention of restoring number 4014 to operating condition. Once in working order, the locomotive will become part of the Union Pacific's Steam Program. Built in 1941 by the American Locomotive works, the Big Boy is considered to be the biggest steam locomotive ever built. Come along as we follow the Big Boy on the first leg of its journey to its new home in Cheyenne, Wyoming where it will undergo restoration to operating condition. This video includes coverage of initial prep work by the UP Steam Team to get the locomotive moving as well as shots from the January 26th, 2014 move from Pomona to Union Pacific's West Colton Yard.





Double Hudsons on Steamrail Maldon Experience 2013: Australian Trains
On Saturday 7 September 2013, Steamrail ran their annual "Maldon Experience" tour to the Bendigo, connecting with the Victorian Goldfields Railway at Castlemaine. North British built Hudson express passenger steam locomotives R761 and R707 hauled the mainline tour with a mixture of heritage timber and steel carriages.

After a pause at Elphinstone, we then see the R classes working hard into the Elphinstone tunnel before departing Castlemaine. The next sequence of shots shows D3 639 and J515 climbing the final 1 in 40 grade into Maldon and then the D3 being serviced while J515 is turned. The action returns to the mainline as R707 leads R761 upgrade away from Kangaroo Flat, then further shots near Castlemaine, Chewton, Taradale and finally Woodend. © 2013 James Brook





Steam and Diesel parallel - R711 to Bacchus Marsh: Australian Trains
On Sunday 7 August 2011, Steamrail Victoria operated a test run to Bacchus Marsh for R class steam locomotive R711 following a lengthy period out of service following the demise of West Coast Railway in 2004. An added bonus was a parallel run with Lachlan Valley Railway's 4204 and B65 in the Auscision Models livery on a Southern Shorthaul Railroad operated rail train along the goods line between Newport and Brooklyn. Well done to all the Steamrail volunteers. It's great to see R711 back in action. © 2011 James Brook

Australian Steam Trains: Steamrail Victoria's R700 transfer to Melbourne.
Steamrail Victoria was chartered for the Annual Ballarat Heritage Weekend by the Ballarat City Council with the use of steam locomotives K190 and Y112 (SRV Ballarat). A transfer was needed to take the rolling stock and locos from Newport SRV Depot to the location of festivities on Friday the 11th via North Geelong. On Monday the 14th the return transferred occurred back to Melbourne, Minus Y112 which stayed at it's Ballarat East Depot home, whilst Steamrail retrieved Hudson R700 from the facility, which had been decided to be brought to Newport for future restoration. This was placed in the middle of the consist due to no proper braking ability. [Please note, I'm aware of the mistaken identity of K190 as it is noted as K153 in the opening title.It would involve me re-uploading the video again]
