The 50 Terminator
|The 50 Terminator (Locomaster Profiles)
To mark the 15th anniversary of the running of the ’50 Terminator’
railtour (and the end of class 50 operation on BR), we re-released the
programme of the same name on DVD. This was our very first ‘Wired for
Sound’ cab ride, and such was its popularity that it started a whole
series of programmes! This digitally re-mastered version on DVD is almost
double the length of the original programme, and comes with a new
introduction and narration from Plymouth’s former Area Fleet Manager
The 600-mile journey with 50 007 Sir Edward Elgar
and 50 050 Fearless traveled over some long-standing routes of the class.
Following the departure from Waterloo, the tour heads through the busy
London suburbs to Woking and Basingstoke. At Worting Junction it takes the
route to Salisbury. From there it then travels via Yeovil and Honiton to
Exeter, a route that features some excellent thrash from the 50s on the
climbs to Buckhorn Weston and Honiton tunnels. Not to mention a near
standing start from the disused Seaton Junction station. From Exeter the
journey continues over the tortuous south Devon banks (on one engine!) to
Plymouth. After crossing the Tamar Bridge into Cornwall, the two 50s then
tackle the challenging climbs to Doublebois, Burngullow and Redruth.
Remarkably, arrival at Penzance is 3 minutes early. The farewell tour
culminated with a run from Penzance to London Paddington, the highlight of
which was the rousing assault on Largin Bank to the summit at Doublebois.
Just before midnight, amidst a fanfare of horns, the two 50s arrived at
Paddington to be greeted by a large crowd who were there to witness
another piece of railway history.
This programme has just about everything – challenging gradients,
serious thrash, fine scenery, plenty of sunshine, and perfectly captures
the day’s historic events as hundreds of people turned out to witness
the last Class 50 hauled train on BR. And you can see and hear it all from
the best seat on the train!
