2000: The Victorian Year In Steam

"2001 The Victorian Year In Steam": Twenty one different locos in a variety of single, double, triple and even quadruple headed combinations provided memorable sights in 2001.  Steam action was at a premium on both main and tourist lines as four locos steamed again after overhauls, one made a final journey and a variety of special events took place.

We have re-released this very popular VHS title as a fully authored, 4 chapter DVD. The usual excellent production standard has translated superbly to DVD in this all colour, all digital production which recorded the 2000 Victorian rail scene. So much has changed in the past few years and this title is a superb historical record. Many scenes are simply not possible any more..

This superb tape includes:
  • Double R class paralleling double 38 class;
  • Y 112 to Wakool;
  • BPR Easter Extravaganza;
  • NSW 38 class in Victoria travelling western lines for the first time;
