Feb 23, 2016. An extended look at Bulleid Pacifics at work in the south of England from 2007 to 2015.
Sequences/clips listing:

Opening 35028 Clan Line Nerchant Navy class passing Crofton.

21C23 ‘West Country Class ‘ Blackmoor Vale’ at Horsted Keynes on the Bluebell Railway, in close to original as-built condition, in Southern Railway livery.

34046 Braunton (as rebuilt) at Salisbury
– passing Dawlish to Dawlish Warren
– Climbing to the Imberhorne Lane ‘Holden’ summit on the Bluebell Railway

35028 Clan Line Merchant Navy (rebuilt)
– Approaching Deepdene cutting on the down slow line with 13 Mk1 coaches
– On the final approach to Honiton tunnel climbing at 1 in 80 with 13 coaches on.
– Passing Shalford Junction on the heavy British Pullman.

There follows a whole series of clips of 35028 ‘Clan Line’ with the British Pullman on the North Downs line from Shalford to Redhill from West to East, from both sides of the line at different locations, in all weathers, starting just up the line from the Shalford water stop – with slipping and sand application and ending on the Brighton Mainline accelerating from Redhill. Highlights include approaching the summit of the line East of Gomshall – and slipping – and the high speed approach to Dorking West from half a mile away.

Finally Clan Line on the LSWR main line again at West Byfleet and then Worting Junction.

The next set of sequences are of Battle of Britain Class 34067 Tangmere in original condition, complete with its internal, oil bath enclosed, chain driven valve gear
– screaming through Farnborough on the up slow
– passing Portslade on a cold and frosty morning
– Crossing the river Adur and accelerating at Ford, passing ‘The Engine Shed’ model railways shop, home of Gaugemaster Controls
– accelerating away from a stop at Woking (with some energetic ballast shovelling going on under the footbridge)
– climbing at 1 in 80 from a speed restriction at Sherborne with 12 on. (The diesel assistance had failed apparently, luckily)
– Racing through Andover on the same London bound Atlantic Coast Express.
– And through Keynsham at speed
– Heading to London, as the leaves were falling, through Deepdene cutting
– Heading into Deepene cutting double heading with 34046 ‘Braunton’ on the Down Fast.
– Climbing the 1 in 50 Upway bank, banked by 70000 Britannia
– Climbing Gomshall bank at speed at Hawkurst Farm
– Racing into Deepdene cutting outward bound from London
– and through Stonegate in the rain and then a couple of miles further towards London under the bridge
– Climbing, East to West, towards Gomshall in the fog
– Restarting from Haywards Heath station – without nameplates
– Looming into Hove station, a bit like Darth Vadar
– A shot of a static 34051 Winston Churchill before the excellent cosmetic restoration by the Mid Hants Railway
– West Country Class 34007 ‘Wadebridge’ on the Mid Hants East of Ropley and easing a well presented fitted good train into the station
– 34081 Battle of Britain Class ’91 squadron’ and West Country Class 34007 ‘Wadebridge’ double heading in the evening sun on the Bluebell Railway and again as dusk falls – into and then leaving Horsted Keynes station.

Rebuilt West Country 34028 ‘Eddystone’ and 21C23 ‘Blackmoor Vale’ leaving Horsted Keynes, giving a nice contrast between the rebuilt and un-rebuilt condition and the liveries of British Railways and its predecessor Southern Railway.
