Jim Clemens Collection Vol.37: Southern Steam Miscellany - No.3


The third in our miscellany series covering Southern steam - SR  STEAM MISCELLANY NO. 3 - features much previously unseen film mainly taken from the Jim Clemens collection. It has been assembled in the order the film runs off the original cine reels and features a wealth of mostly South Western Division Steam.


Locations include: London Waterloo, Woking, Basingstoke, Battledown Flyover, Salisbury, Micheldever, Eastleigh, Southampton, Brockenhurst, Lymington Junction, Christchurch, Bournemouth, Poole, Dorchester South and its strange operating procedure for up services, Upwey Wishing Well Halt, Upwey & Broadwey, and Weymouth.


Oxford is the starting point in the summer of 1965 for two trips on the southbound ‘Pines Express’. A last journey is made in December 1965 over the Somerset & Dorset Railway from Templecombe to Bournemouth. In the far west we visit the Axminster to Lyme Regis branch, Seaton Junction, Sidmouth Junction, Tipton St. Johns, Budleigh Salterton, the Bere Alston to Callington branch, Exeter to Okehampton, Meldon Viaduct and Halwill, plus the North Devon & Cornwall Junction Light Railway through Hatherleigh and Petrockstow to Torrington and onwards to Barnstaple Junction and Barnstaple Victoria Road.


A cross section of latter-day SR, BR & LMS motive power is seen – even the odd ‘Warship’ diesel and D65xx.
