Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway - The Early Years Volume 4

The Ultimate Great Western Weekend

During the mid to late 1980s I shot around 20 hours of video of the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway. Almost all of the material is in good condition and has transfered to PC at a good quality.
I used a Sony HVC4000P video camera, a Sony SL-F1UB portable video recorder, an external microphone, and almost all was done using a tripod (a few hand held shots where I could not use it - like over heads). This DVD also uses some Canon Video 8 material from my dad about half on tripod, and half hand held.
On a couple of shots my camera played up and dropped to black and white, however due to the uniqueness of the material I left it in.

All editing on these DVDs was carried out on a PC from the original material captured to PC. This DVD is as good as the original material.

The main feature is off the Ultimate Great Western Weekend 13th & 14th October 1990, it is 54 minutes long and features most trains on both days.

There is an additional feature of 24 minutes of the first visit on Great Western Pannier Tank 7752. This was filmed over three weekends.

The Ultimate Great Western Weekend featured the four following Great Western locomotives, Pannier 7752, Prairie 6106, Castle 5080 "Defiant" and City 3440 "City of Truro".
The locomotives are featured operating between Toddington and Gretton via Winchcombe, with locations including 4 different positions at Toddington, the fields south of Toddington, Hailes Abbey Bridge and also lineside, near Winchcombe where the railway crosses the A46, a few positions at Winchcombe Station, lineside towards the tunnel, from above the tunnel mouth including a double header with Defiant and City of Truro. From the other side of the tunnel by the mouth, and at Gretton.
As two cameras were in use on Sunday, a few trains are videoed at a few different locations, making Sunday a better watch than Saturday.

The DVD was edited on the PC, encoded with TMPGENC with 2 pass variable bit rate, and duplicated with Ritek G04 or G05 media, all discs are printed.

All cover pictures are of stills of the video.
