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

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 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





Rail Replacement at Musk - DSCR: Australian Trains
A "behind the scenes" look at the way and works gang on the Daylesford Spa Country Railway replacing rail near Musk as part of the works on returning trains from Musk to Bullarto. The 60lb D rail on the curve at the up end of the station had become worn and the opportunity is being taken to replace it with heavier 75lb rail. First the dog spikes were lifted on a number of sleepers, leaving enough holding the rail to run the spike reclaimer over it. The spike reclaimer then ran over the section and the large magnetic wheels pick up the loose spikes. The spike lifters are then run over the section again to remove the remaining dog spikes. The old rail is then lifted off the sleepers and the new rail is moved into position. The sections of rail are then bolted together with fish plates before spikes are hammered into the solid sleepers to take track machines. This will enable sleeper replacement to occur at a later date.

Hudson Steam Train on the Northern Weekender: Australian Trains
Over the Queen's Birthday long weekend, Steamrail operated a weekend tour hauled by North British built hudson steam locomotive R761 assisted by classic Clyde/GM diesel electric S313. The trip visited Swan Hill and Echuca on the Murray River in the north of the state and featured a range of classic sleeping carriages from The Overland, The Vinelander and The Southern Aurora. This video features the return leg of the trip from Echuca to Melbourne, commencing with a chorus of whistles from R761 and several adjacent traction engines while the special departs Echuca on a crisp and still winter morning, followed by scenes at Goornong and North Bendigo. The second half of this video follows the evening run back to Melbourne with footage climbing the grades at Kangaroo Flat, Porcupine Hill and Chewton, plus scenes at Castlemaine, Elphinstone and 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

This video features footage of the shuttles on Sunday 13 May. They were originally scheduled to operate between Ballarat and Sulky on the Maryborough line but due to a failed Vlocity on that line, the morning shuttles operated to Warrenheip on the Geelong line. K190 is at the Melbourne/Ballarat end of the train while Y112 is at the Maryborough end. © 2012 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.
