Volume 25

The Richard Greenwood Collection
North West England – Part 2

Archive footage of this quality is seldom seen publicly. Over the past 50 years Richard Greenwood, who will be a familiar name to many for his association with the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway, documented a huge selection of high quality steam railway action including the North West of England, Scotland, Wales, the North East and also the Southern region.

Starting at Rochdale Station this DVD takes a further look at working steam in North West England, as initially featured in volume 24.

At Rochdale there’s a chance to enjoy some everyday scenes including freight and local passenger operations. Also highlighted is 46497 on the little used turntable and a look at evening parcels workings.

There’s action on the Whitworth branch featuring a weed-killing train and a brakevan trip to Whitworth with 42343.

The Calder Valley line from Rochdale to Sowerby Bridge provides plenty of nostalgic views including a chance to pause at Bellfield, Clegg Hall, Smithy Bridge, Littleborough, Summit Tunnel, Winterbutlee Tunnel, Walsden, Todmorden, Hall Royd Junction, Eastwood, Hebden Bridge and Sowerby Bridge.

Returning to Hall Royd Junction the journey continues up the climb to Copy Pit.

The Programme ends with the ‘Rossendale Forester’ railtour on the last day of service to Bacup.

The next volume in this exciting series will head away from Rochdale towards Milnrow and around the Oldham loop line and Manchester.
