First we see 45's on varied duties at locations including York, Dawlish, Plymouth and Bristol.

The main feature on this DVD is called MIDLAND MEMORIES and was videoed in 1983. This material is not as sharp in picture or sound quality as material gathered from 1985 on as video cameras got better and better. However, Driver training on HSTs was gathering pace on the Midland but the 45s were still in charge of all mainline services. So we see 45s flying through Bedford on the fast lines and arriving on the evening commuter trains. I wonder where the two young lads are now who ask to cab 45122. If it was you get in touch! We also see 45s in action at Luton, Leicester, Derby, Nottingham, Sheffield, St. Pancras and more.

The TRANS PENNINE feature includes among its locations Manchester Victoria, Huddersfield and Staley Bridge. This material was also videoed in 1983.

45019 gets the spirited start award for her stirring start from Staley Bridge. We see 45s in landscape earlier in the title near Bedford and Leicester but this cannot compare with Diggle Junction on the Trans Pennine route where we see them now.
