Mallard On The Mainline
A few shots of A4 no.4468, Mallard on railtours in 1988. I had intended to post this video in time for the 70th.anniversary of the record run in July but misplaced one of the master tapes. The loco is seen at York followed by some on train footage on the Settle & Carlisle and then at Carlisle. Lineside shots taken in the Hope Valley,the Standedge route and on the Settle & Carlisle. Recorded on standard VHS video and before I discovered that a fluid head tripod was a good investment so not top quality!!!

Eisenbahn-Fest Staßfurt 1/2 - Steam Train - Züge
Dieser Film ist auch auf meiner DVD "Eisenbahnfeste Staßfurt und Nossen" zu sehen. In Staßfurt fand im Juni 2011 ein wunderschönes Eisenbahnfest statt. Vor Ort waren Dampflokomotiven unterschiedlicher Baureihen, von denen auch einige unter Dampf waren. Man konnte Pendelfahrten auf dem Führerstand machen und auch ein Güterzug fuhr für die Besucher um Foto- und Videoaufnahmen zu ermöglichen. Als Gast kam dann noch ein Sonderzug, der von der ölgefeuerten Lokomotive 41 096, die mit einer imposanten Geräuschkulisse ihrer Brenner imponierte. Dieser Film ist Teil 1 des zweiteiligen Filmes. This video is a part from my DVD "Eisenbahnfeste Staßfurt und Nossen".
