Hidden Secrets On The Manor Railway

Hidden Secrets on The Manor Railway - May 2006

This private 10 ¼ inch gauge railway seldom runs a train of scale freight stock over the entire length of this line, so we were delighted to be asked to film from Haven Road to Hazelbank End, a distance of ¾ of a mile.

On the day of filming the journey through the woodland from Bramble Hill to the line’ s terminus at Hazelbank End was blanketed in Bluebells.

Two models of vintage steam locomotives, Invicta and Lion {double headed} were on duty for the journey and provided an excellent service.

The Metropolitan Tank locomotive Pluto provided light engine and shunting duties with the Midland Compound sitting on shed.

This DVD includes steam raising, close ups of all three locomotives, various line side on board and driver’s view shots which provide a real time journey on this marvellous and historic line.

A unique opportunity to see locomotives and rolling stock that appear rarely- let alone all together at one time.

Total running time 24 minutes, Non narrated.
