The Ge­off Holyoake DVD Col­lec­tion

This England - - This England Gifts -

Ge­off Holyoake is a leg­end among rail­way en­thu­si­asts. He was one of the small elite who used 16mm film rather than 8mm, pro­duc­ing films for com­mer­cial sale un­der the Me­teor Films ban­ner. His pas­sion, skill and de­ter­mi­na­tion to cap­ture the age of steam on film be­fore it was too late en­sured that, to­day, we have an in­cred­i­ble ar­chive of footage show­ing the great lo­co­mo­tives, the his­toric lines and the be­gin­ning of the preser­va­tion move­ment.

In this DVD, Ge­off Holyoake’s cine films bring the South­ern Re­gion of the 1960s back to life - from the East­ern Di­vi­sion through the Cen­tral and the Western Di­vi­sions. Here we can see once again push-pull Hs and M7s, Brighton “Ter­ri­ers” and Ra­dial tanks, as well as the Pacifics, Moguls and BR Stan­dard classes that all went to make up the most var­ied se­lec­tion of steam mo­tive power on Bri­tish Rail­ways in the 1960s. Code: DGH02 From East to West

Code: DGH01 Six­ties South­ern Ge­off’s home was near the South Western Main Line of the South­ern Re­gion in the 1960s and he recorded the last days of steam on what was to be­come the last steam main line of all, film­ing the King Arthurs, Char­lies and Bulleid Pacifics as well as some of the fi­nal ex­am­ples of the pre-group­ing en­gines that worked there.

Code: DGH03 Western Re­gion Steam in the 1960s This DVD is de­voted to Ge­off Holyoake’s col­lec­tion of ex­quis­ite footage of steam lo­co­mo­tives on the old Western Re­gion and the early preser­va­tion of former GWR lines and stock as the preser­va­tion move­ment got un­der way.
