  • The Gaslight Films Of Norm Wadeson

    The Gaslight Films Of Norm Wadeson

    $29.95 (incl GST)

    The Gaslight Films Of Norm Wadeson: A collection of three films shot on Kodachrome Standard 8mm stock by Norm in the late 1950s & early 1960s and edited/narrated by him at that time.

    DEDICATED TO NORMAN E WADESON, OAM and his foresight in filming and editing these films.

    In the 1950s and 60s, stalwart of the Puffing Billy Preservation Society Norm Wadeson edited three films: 'Here Comes Puffing Billy', 'Narrow Gauge' and 'Timber Extraction' from contemporary footage he and others had shot. Shown at public meetings to gain support for the fledgling Puffing Billy Railway, the films had a wide and appreciative audience.

    ALL THREE FILMS CONSIST OF ABSOLUTELY UNREPEATABLE FOOTAGE.

    Fifty years on, Steam Media believes these superb productions deserve a new appreciative audience. With Norm's full blessing, this DVD has been produced so that more generations may enjoy the unrepeatable historic scenes in a contemporary format. Whilst there has been some computer enhancement, the films are basically the same productions as captured on Kodachrome Standard 8mm stock almost 60 years ago. The 4:3 aspect of capture has been retained.

    • HERE COMES PUFFING BILLY - The early history of preserving Puffing Billy - 30 minutes Narrated by Norm himself, this film tells the story of the early days of the Puffing Billy Preservation Society. It covers the final runs of Puffing Billy from his original terminus at Upper Ferntree Gully when specials ran to the present terminus of Belgrave in 1958, the restoration of the line between Belgrave and Menzies Creek between 1958 and1962, rolling stock transfers and concludes with ballast, test and opening special trains in 1962. All colour.
    • NARROW GAUGE - A run of 'The Beechy' on the Colac - Crowes line with G 42 - 10 minutes The 2' 6" gauge Crowes line in the Otway Ranges was a railfan favourite. Winding its way through picturesque country, the line was the only transport to many towns when it opened to Beech Forest in 1902. Extended to Crowes in 1911, the line faithfully served the local communities until it closed in 1963. Norm takes us on a trip during 1957 with Garratt G 42 hauling a train to Weeaproinah – the terminus at the time. All colour, with titles and accompanying background music - no narration.
    • TIMBER EXTRACTION - A celluloid essay on Eastern Victorian timber tramways - 18 minutesAgain narrated by Norm, this film shows how timber was harvested in Victorian forests during the first half of last century. Using an amazing variety of motive power, narrow gauge timber tramways transported logs through rugged country to bush sawmills. Shays, a Climax, tender and tank locos as well as internal combustion tractors all feature in this exceptional record of a bygone era. A mixture of colour and BW footage

  • Steam in the Suburbs

    Steam in the Suburbs

    $39.95 (incl GST)
    Ninety Minutes of Supurb Steam Action from the Steam Media Team
    The footage on this program appears, in part, on the popular 2009 and 2010 'The Victorian Year In Steam' DVDs. As VYIS covers main and tourist line action as well as suburban shuttles there was much very watchable footage of the metro area specials which could not be included in those two hour fifteen minute productions. There were many long scenes of steam climbing steep grades and taking a fair bit of time to reach the summit which we believe should be published. Thus 'The Steam Team' has produced this DVD so you may enjoy viewing the complete story of 'Steam In The Suburbs'.

    In May 2010 Victorian steam history was made as 7A returned to the Walhalla railway and hauled a series of special trains as part of Centenary celebrations for the line. Normally based at the Puffing Billy Railway in the Dandenong Ranges, 7A was taken by road to the Gippsland Hills on a short term loan to the Walhalla Goldfields Railway.

    Steam Media cameramen captured ALL the action associated with the visit, beginning with 7A double heading to Menzies Creek with 8A on a delivery run. Next day 7 was placed on a road low loader & transported to Walhalla. Test runs were made on the following two days and all these runs are covered. The weekend saw six special passenger trains operate in a variety of weather conditions and every train is featured at length.

    Entirely shot in High Definition, this DVD is THE complete record of this historic event.

    Steam Media Productions have combined with Series 567 to produce Bruce William's two very popular VHS productions as a single 90 minute DVD. It covers the last two winters of mainline Garratt action in Zimbabwe during 1991 & 1992.

    The two parts run for 52 and 38 minutes respectively, giving an hour and a half of absolute history. We see Garratt operations from sunrise to sunset, from lineside and in the cab, on both passenger and goods trains - regular and special, locomotive preparation, shed scenes at Bulawayo and Thompson Junction and the infrastructure associated with steam operations. Lines covered include Bulawayo - Plumtree, Bulawayo - West Nicholson and Bulawayo - Victoria Falls including aerial shots of a Garratt on the famous bridge linking Zimbabwe and Zambia. The Wankie Colliery line is also featured where ex Rhodesian Railways 19th class 4-8-2s haul coal to the main line. Couple Bruce's very capable camera work with his skilled editing and John Batwell's informative narration and you have a marvellous memento of an era now gone forever.
