Lincoln's Railway 150 years (RRP £10) From Great Northern steam to Central Trains diesel, this unique DVD tells the story of one hundred and fifty years of railway history in Lincoln. The story began on August 4th 1846 when a Midland Railway train arrived in the historic city. Four other railway companies later joined the Midland, providing goods and passenger services from two stations via eight routes to destinations all over Britain.  Archive film, from as early as 1935, shows steam and early diesel services, with behind-the-scenes glimpses of railway operation. DVD highlights include early film of the High Street level crossing, the first green diesel multiple unit seen in Central Station, the 100mph "Deltic" express diesels in service, colour film of heavy haulage, and two visits by "Flying Scotsman" in the sixties.  Supported by maps and footage of surviving railway locations, complete with drivers-eye views of the four lines that still serve the Central Station, the sole survivor since the Midland St. Marks Station closed, this DVD fills a significant gap in railway history coverage and will be of great interest to all railway fans.

B12 Locomotive (RRP £10)  The unique story of how Britain’s last inside cylinder 4-6-0 locomotive was brought back to life. Engine 8572 was saved for preservation by the Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway Society and it was a mammoth struggle to get her back into steam on the North Norfolk Railway.  The restoration was undertaken in German workshops where she steamed again for the first time after 30 years of silence before the long awaited return. This film is set apart from others by the amount of stunning foot plate sequences, with the drivers and firemen in action. This is complemented by a backdrop of dramatic scenery as the engine tackles the gradient for the first time. Use of specially mounted cameras provide unique views of the motion and wheels during operation. Preparation and disposal of the B12 is also featured.
