http://wrha2.files.wordpress.com/2011/09/vol2_waverley.jpg?w=172&h=300 RAILWAYS OF SCOTLAND
VOLUME 2 – THE WAVERLEY ROUTE
PRICE £19.95 Until its closure in 1969, the Waverley Route served the border towns and villages between Carlisle andEdinburgh. The industrial towns of Hawick and Galashiels contrasted sharply with the lonely beauty of Falahill, Shankend and Whitrope Summit, names that evoke memories of hard working steam locomotives as they pounded up steep gradients. From D49s in 1959, A1s, A3s, A4s, B1s and V2s in the early 1960s, to Claytons and Peaks after the end of steam, we trace the changes in motive power, including scenes on the last day of passenger workings. Leisurely trips on the branch lines to Kelso, Langholm and Selkirk, with studies of Galashiels, Hawick, St. Boswells, Shankend and Stow complement a superb final rail travelogue from Carlisle to Edinburgh featuring almost every station on the route. Duration: 59 min

VOLUME 3 – EDINBURGH – PRICE £19.95
Edinburgh – or ‘Auld Reekie’ – boasted an intricate network of suburban and freight lines until the sweeping closures of the nineteen sixties. In this programme, many of those long closed lines and stations are featured, from the impressive Princes Street Station to outlying stations such as Slateford and Portobello. Recorded at a wide variety of locations, many classes of steam locomotive are shown at work. The transition to diesel traction is also well documented with ‘Deltic’, Type ’4′, Sulzer ‘Type 2′ and ‘Clayton’ locomotives prominent. To the north West of Edinburgh lies the famous Forth Railway Bridge, opened in 1890. Included is footage of a ferry crossing from the South end of the bridge of North Queensferry. No look at Scotland’s capital city would be complete without views of Waverley Station and scenes here feature LNER and NBR loco types. Duration: 59 min
