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 Geoff Hudson.

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!
