Archive Films Sought
We are currently looking for old archive films to complete several new DVD projects. Apart from general railway and shipping subjects, we are looking for specific scenes around the South West of England of steam operating prior to 1967. A new project requires film of Southern locomotive subjects including the Maunsell and Urie engines and Bulleid Pacifics. We are also looking for archive of the QE2 and earlier Cunard liners Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth. A project we are currently completing for 2014 is about Solent Innovations. We are seeking footage of a number of subjects to picture the many varied inventions and innovations created in the Southampton/Portsmouth Solent area. These could include the hovercraft, aviation subjects, sailing, pioneering engineering achievements and any other Solent-designed subjects.
If you think you have film that might cover the areas mentioned, please contact us so that we can arrange collection and discuss arrangements and transfer to DVD format.

This is the story of Dorset’s much loved and only preserved railway. Opened in 1885, closed and lifted by British Rail in 1972. Despite objections, all the track was lifted and it has been only thanks to the spirit and determination of local people and enthusiasts that this wasn’t the end of rails to Swanage.
Rare archive footage from the 1950s onwards shows the M7 class alongside push-pull coaches, shot from along the lineside and the operation at Worget Junction where the branch connected to the mainline.
We also include footage of the early progress of Swanage as it comes back to life as a preserved railway, slowly panel by panel rails extended out from Swanage.
We include footage of the first movement off the main line, with a Dorset Voyager arriving at Swanage for naming by two long-standing volunteers. We go right up to the present day with visits by Tornado, Tangmere, Oliver Cromwell and even a HST 125 – reminiscent of Summer Specials and perhaps what the future may hold as upgrading and signalling, heralding regular services over the connection to Wareham come ever closer.
With over two hours footage coming right up to operations in the 35th anniversary year of heritage train operations. Sit back and enjoy a trip through the ages of Dorset’s picturesque heritage railway. Purchase of this DVD helps raise funds to continue preserving the Swanage Railway. Click Here for more details.
