14 Houghton 1980

Welcome to Diesel Traction Video. We are located in Wymondham; a small market town in Norfolk with its fine 12th century Abbey and on the original Great Eastern main line from Norwich to London Liverpool Street via Ely and Cambridge.

We began producing videos for the Rail Enthusiast in 1983. We had some good reviews in Rail Enthusiast, Railway Magazine and Railway Reflections. All footage included on Diesel Traction Videos was shot in the 1980’s over the extensive British Rail Network.

Most of the Deltic footage was shot in the last couple of years of service and all material from 1982 was on video tape. All analogue material has been digitally re - mastered and is available on DVD.

Diesel Traction Video now owns the copyright of all material previously issued by First Choice Photographic & Modern Traction Video.

So here is what you will get with a Diesel Traction Video; A DVD made by enthusiasts for the enjoyment of other enthusiasts. Watch a Class 37 working a heavy freight in The Scottish Highlands or a Class 50 romping along the West Country coastline. What you will hear is English Electric engines vibrating your T.V. Set. No intrusive music or irritating narration.

Diesel Traction Videos contain only vintage and historic footage shot during the British Rail days of the 1980’s. Endless scenes are captured that are now just history. So take a nostalgic walk down memory lane to those halcyon days when Diesel Electric Locomotives ruled the metals & hauled trains were commonplace.

The glorious sights of passenger and mixed freight trains as well as block & engineers workings are all here.

 Most of the DVDs run for 60 minutes, but some are longer. See notes on individual titles.

Identification of locomotives, locations and dates etc. is provided by superimposed computer graphics. The DVDs are supplied in cases with some containing further printed producer’s notes.

We pride ourselves on our customer service and DVDs are dispatched on the same or next working day of order. Money back guaranteed if not completely satisfied.

We hope that you find something to interest you and keep checking as new titles will be added.   You are more than welcome to contact us if you want more information, or have some suggestions. Whatever; feel free to get in touch.

Don’t forget all titles include only British Rail Main Line and Branch Line action

Thank you for your interest and we look forward to hearing from you.
