Commuter Trains of the 21st Century Dvd: Part 1, Class 67s




The first title in a brand new four-part series looking at commuter trains across the UK features the Class 67 hauled trains.

Originally built to haul mail trains, latterly found working charter and sleeper trains, the class 67 locomotive has had a chequered history but in the last few years, thanks to DMU shortages, the locos have taken on a new role – hauling commuter trains.

Operated by three different train companies, in three very different parts of the country and wearing (at least) three different liveries, the class 67 now has daily booked passenger work, primarily taking commuters to and from work.

Working out of Marylebone (Chiltern), Holyhead (Arriva Wales) and Edinburgh (Scotrail) this programme takes a detailed look at the current operations of the class 67 hauled passenger trains.

A fine selection of run-past shots are accompanied by features on the coaches used, the diagrams, ECS moves, overnight stabling, all wrapped up with maps and other trivia.

Approx.  95 minutes.
