Delight of Turkish Steam Railways Dvd


SKU: 669 Categories: ,



Turkey, a haven for historical steam until the end of the 1980s.

Relive the sight and sounds of wheezing, leaking G8 0-8-0s and G10 0-10-0s in the Izmir area. 2-10-2s shunting in passenger and freight service.

A Nohab 2-6-0 is filmed in full cry on an evening passenger as well as a Kriegslok on the Denizli mixed storming Kemer and SelÇuk banks.

A Robert Stephenson works the Odemis mixed, where engine and tender are separated for turning. 05.00 on a frosty morning at Burdur reveals G8s and 10s, with some double heading.

Irmak and a British 8F performs shunting duties with ‘Skyliner’ 2-10-0s in the Zonguldak, KarabÜk, Çankiri areas on passenger and heavy freight.

On the Black Sea Coast G8² 2-8-0s work the Sivas-Samsun-Çarsamba and Eregli-ArmaÇuk lines.

An appreciation of the excellence of the 56 class 2-10-0s is gained as they struggle up into the permanent snows at over 8,000 feet on the 235km Erzurum-Kars line, 12½ hours of solid thrash!

2-10-0s and 2-10-2s with some double heading, filmed near Gunerkoy Summit and on Turkmantepe Viaduct.

Original 8mm film by George Shields.

Narrated by Tony Fowles.
