Train Drivers Manual DVD/Book

A fascinating look at the challenging role of a steam train driver! ENGINE DRIVER S MANUAL DVD: For many, driving a steam engine remains an impossible dream. Others may try a Driver s Experience day offered by many of the preserved lines. But, as this programme shows, anyone can become an engine driver. The key ingredients are commitment and enthusiasm. Most preserved lines rely on an army of volunteers and so becoming an engine driver means helping out in a variety of roles before you can take control of a steam locomotive pulling coaches full of passengers. In this programme, Nick Coram at Swanage Steam Railway takes us through the process as well as showing us some of the tasks involved. As well as showing life on the footplate at Swanage, we also feature scenes from the small locos that gently run up and down the line as part of the Talyllyn Steam Railway. By way of a contrast, the programme also features footplate scenes shot on the mighty Sir Nigel Gresley , an A4 Class loco and sister to Mallard that holds the world Speed Record for a steam locomotive. Filmed in HD on location at the wonderful Preserved Line in Swanage Filmed using the mighty Sir Nigel Gresley No. 60007 Showing you how to use the dials, brakes, firebox and more! THE ENGINE DRIVER S MANUAL LITTLE BOOK: The need to learn the skills necessary to drive a steam train is vital to the future survival of the many successful and popular preserved lines in operation today. In this comprehensive practical manual, former BR steam engineman Brian Topping conducts us along the traditional learning path from cleaner to fireman to driver, reminding us that for all the glamour of the footplate, there is also a great deal of dirty and strenuous work involved. Packed with wonderful photographs, illustrations and diagrams this little book covers such matters as maintenance, lubrication, different braking systems and valve gears, efficient firing, footplate controls, basic railway signalling, and much more. Whether you are an established driver wishing to brush up on your locomotive knowledge, an armchair enthusiast, or a would-be preservation volunteer, this is the indispensable aid to safe and successful steam locomotive driving and management.
