Then to Kingswear in Devon to witness an excursion leaning for Paignton along the Dart Estury. Llangollen in May 1994 provided a beautiful setting in the early summer with engines of all shapes and sizes culminating in Pannier Tank 7754 watering up for a journey into the Welsh Countryside.

The Severn Valley Railway held its Autumn Gala in 24th & 25th September, where Stan captured images of a galaxy of giants of steam around Bewdley and Arley. Finally the Noth Yorkshire Railway provides a back drop for unique sequences of some of the UK’s mightiest restored engines. Engines featured include The Flying Scotsman, Ta Valley (Golden Arrow), Kind Edward 1st, Bradley Manor, Union of South Africa, plus many, many more.

All video footage by Stan Harvey


All the DVDs are produced, packed and sent directly from Aarchvie Films.

The original documentaries were made on S-VHS, in a 4:3 ratio, so on a standard TV/computer screen, will show black bars on both sides.

There is some very brief areas of ‘dropout’ when they were converted from S-VHS video to digital. We have done the best we can to reduce this, but it is still there.

All of the documentaries were produced by Roger Lilley of Aarchive Films, who passed away 20 years ago. Some of the ‘modern’ footage is from between 1995 – 2000, so some of the newer footage may look different now.
