Vic's Railways Volume 2

Vic's Railways Volume 2

This DVD contains more than two hours of historic rail action. Motive power shown includes diesel, steam and electric locos.

Vic Greensill was a professional railwayman and railfan who recorded rail history on a variety of media. Between 1991 and 1995, Vic shot video footage in Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland featuring all forms of motive power on many different gauges.

Vic's dream was to have his material published for others to enjoy. Unfortunately a tragic level crossing accident in April 2006 claimed his life before his dream became a reality.

The passage of time has seen most of Vic's footage become simply unrepeatable. Privatisations, line closures, livery changes and operational restrictions have all contributed to make Vic's footage absolutely outstanding archival material at the time of this DVD's production in 2007. In future years the contents of this DVD will greatly increase in significance as documenting an era of change on eastern Australia's railways. Through the co-operation of Vic's wife Jo and many of his friends, Series 567 Rail Video and Steam Media Productions are extremely proud to make Vic's dream come true in VIC's RAILWAYS - VOLUME 1 and now also in VIC'S RAILWAYS - VOLUME 2.
