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.





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





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

Steam Trains in the Hills - Puffing Billy Railway: Australian Trains
The Puffing Billy Railway in Victoria's Dandenong mountains is one of Australia's most well known heritage railways. Operating on the original route built over a century ago and a unique survivor of the Victorian Railway's four experimental 2ft 6in narrow gauge lines, Puffing Billy is now a major tourist attraction with steam trains operating year round. Despite their small size the Na class 2-6-2 tank locomotives are impressive performers and their sound echoes off the hills as they haul trainloads of tourists, families and railfans to Lakeside or Gembrook and return. Meanwhile Beyer Garratt locomotive G42 (originally from the Walhalla and Beech Forest lines) is put to good use on the longer and heavier luncheon train. This video features a typical Saturday at Puffing Billy as filmed on 2 June 2012. 8A ran the first and last service to Lakeside while 14A ran the Gembrook service and G42 ran the lunch train. © 2012 James Brook





Zig Zag Railway Steam Train - Australian Trains, New South Wales
Climb aboard for a journey along the famous Zig Zag Railway in the Blue Mountains, New South Wales. Australia. The Zig Zag Railway is a heritage railway at Lithgow in New South Wales, Australia on the site of the famous Great or Lithgow Zig Zag which operated between 1869 and 1910. As built, the line formed part of the Main West line from Sydney across the Blue Mountains and served to lower the line from its summit into the Lithgow valley on the western flank of the mountains. The Zig Zag railway run steam and diesel hauled trains over the Zig Zag for tourists. They are unique in NSW as being the only heritage operator to run everyday except Christmas day. On Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays railmotors are operated. Every Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday a steam loco with train will operate. Sunday has a two train timetable. Special events include a Day Out with Thomas and a Wizards express event held a couple of times per year. During most of the NSW school holidays steam services run every day. In the early 1970's a group of steam enthusiasts decided to restore the Lithgow Zig Zag as a heritage railway due to it's facinating history, the grand nature of the line and it's proximity to Sydney. Thus the Zig Zag Railway cooperative was born. However, the New South Wales Government would not supply heritage locomotives and rolling stock to anyone but their own museum organisation. Rolling stock for the museum thus comes from states other than New South Wales -- Queensland and South Australia in particular. During the early 1970's the track formation although on a different gauge (3 ft 6 in (1,067 mm) instead of the original 4 ft 8 1⁄2 in (1,435 mm)) to accommodate the Queensland and South Australian Rolling stock. In 1975 the new track was complete between Bottom Points and Top Points and the first society train was run. Since then the Zig Zag railway has expanded both it's operations and the new narrow gauge network along the old formation in several sections:

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 Locomotive D3 639 Melbourne to Maldon: Australian Trains
On Sunday 23 June 2013, Steamrail Victoria transferred 112 year old steam locomotive D3 639 to the Victorian Goldfields Railway for operation on their Castlemaine to Maldon branch line over the next few months. The D3 replaced K190 which had been on loan since October last year. The transfer move also included sitting car 80BW and the recently completed Pullman lounge car Macedon (originally a V&SAR sleeping car). The video commences with the D3 storming over the top of Sunbury bank in fine style on a freezing cold and clear winter morning, then recovering from steaming problems on the grade out of Riddels Creek. Further shots on the mainline are at Carlsruhe, Kyneton and further down the line towards Malmsbury. Upon arrival at Castlemaine, the D3 was transferred over to platform 3 and the VGR branch before K190 rejoined the mainline and headed back to Melbourne with 67BW. After Y133 arrived at Castlemaine with the regular VGR train, D3 639 ventured onto the Maldon branch for the first time in over 40 years with shots at Winters Flat, Muckleford and finally Maldon. © 2013 James Brook
