Southern Electric – New rolling stock for the Waterloo & City

A film from November 1940 showing new the cars being delivered to, and the original 1898 stock removed from, the Waterloo & City line which runs underground from Waterloo Station to Bank in the City of London. The Waterloo & City, colloquially known as The Drain is a unique part of the underground network in that for most of its existance it has been administratively seperate from the London Underground. Built for the London & South Western Railway to provide a convenient link from their mainline terminus at Waterloo to the business centre of London, it became a part of the Southern Railway in 1923 and upon nationalisation in 1948 became part of British Rail’s Southern Region. With privatisation of British Rail in 1993, the W&C was something of an anomaly and by agreement was taken over by London Transport. It is not connected to any other part of the London Underground and uniquely for tube lines in London is entirely sub-surface. The 1898 vintage wooden cars being removed in the film were built by Jackson and Sharp of Wilmington, Delaware, USA, using Siemens electrical motors and control equipment. The new electric multiple unit cars were manufactured by the English Electric company and would be used (classified as Class 487 under TOPS) until 1992 when, just prior to privatisation, they were replaced with replaced by new Class 482 units – these being virtually identical to the 1992 stock used on the LT Central line. The vehicles are seen being moved by an Armstrong Lift

35th Annual Oklahoma City Model Train Show 12/3/2011||Tripod+720p

THIS VIDEO IS THE SOLE PROPERTY OF JAMES B. TRACHIER, COPYRIGHT © 2011. This is a special half-hour video feature I put together of model trains at the 35th annual Oklahoma City Train Show, set to a cool music soundtrack (with the large crowd of people present, the trains were hard to hear in the original video footage, largely getting drowned out by crowds of people chattering in the background anyway, so I chose music instead ;)). The OKC Train Show is an annual event sponsored by the Oklahoma Railway Museum that takes place on the first weekend in December at the Oklahoma State Fair Grounds. It is one of the largest train shows in the southwestern United States. All music used in this video is used with permission under Creative Commons licenses (see below for more info). This is my first video upload to exceed 15 minutes in length, thanks to now having unlimited video upload time enabled on my account.
