Vol. 72 & 73: Clan Line 2007-2015

On two discs, highlights of Clan Line’s exploits during her fourth period of mainline running since preservation.

Part 1 covers her work with the VSOE (latterly Belmond) Pullman trains on regular trips to Bristol, Oxford, Southampton and around the “Surrey Hills” circuit.

Part 2 shows her work on one-off charters, including The Waterloo Sunset on the 40th anniversary of the end of Southern steam, The Eastleigh Centenarian celebrating 100 years since the opening of Eastleigh loco works, several Cathedrals Express tours and her final run to Crewe for overhaul.

Available as a double DVD from the Merchant Navy Locomotive Preservation Society, or as a double Blu-ray direct from Steam Age Pictures. All proceeds from this production will go to the MNLPS.
