Southern Pacific Steam When It Was King


These are actual 16mm home movies films, made by the Late Robert G. Sage, SR. of Reading, PA. There were 12 Reels of movies from the late 1940’s through the 50’s. I bought these 16mm Films at a yard sale last year. I had them transferred through a freind of mind. All audio has been added. The pacing scene of the Daylight, sound was provided by pacing scenes from 1996 of the Eire Limed of C&O 614. Other train sound was from other steam locomotives I took audio of through the years. Hope you enjoy. Len.

GWR ‘King’ Class 4-6-0 Steam Loco No. 6024 At Bristol Temple Meads – Stag Party Oblivious


GWR ‘King’ class 4-6-0 steam loco No. 6024 ‘King Edward I’ runs light engine (and support coach) out of Bristol Temple Meads station after working ‘The Devonion’ return railtour from Plymouth to Bristol TM on June 4th 2011. I had videod it leaving TMs station earlier in the day and it was a surprise to see it pass through later that night when I was in my hotel bar having a quick drink. The noise is from a group of about 50 good natured Irishmen who were having a Stag ‘Do’ in Bristol and were oblivious to the steam loco passing as they were otherwise engaged!

6024 King Edward 1 on ‘THE PEMBROKE COAST EXPRESS’ 1st May 2011.


On a very blustery day, I went out to film The Pembroke Coast Express running as 1Z24 08.14 from Bristol Temple Meads to Pembroke Dock via Carmarthen. The train was diesel hauled by 66192 from Bristol to Margam,where the King took over for the first part of the run to Carmarthen via The Swansea avoiding line. The Class 66 preceded it to Carmarthen, where it was re-attached for the journey to Pembroke Dock, with the King trailing. The service returned fro Pembroke Dock at 14.15 with the 66 at the rear. It didn’t stop at Carmarthen but called at Llangennech for water. It then proceeded to Margam where the 66 was detached allowing the King and it’s 11 coach train to work the last leg of the journey to Bristol Temple Meads. The 66 followed closely behind light engine.This video was shot at various locations across South Wales during the day, titled as necessary throughout , and my apologies for slight wind noise which was unavoidable.

‘Prembroke Coast Express’ with 6024 ‘King Edward I’ – Sunday 01/05/11


A rare trip down to Tenby hauled by a steam locomotive was used to promote this railtour, only possible on a Sunday due to pathing issues on the branch down to the seaside town in West Wales. Given the honour to haul this, the ‘Pembroke Coast Express’, was GWR 4-6-0 ‘King’ Class number 6024 ‘King Edward I’ on a rake of mixed steam era liveried Mark 1 coaches, seen here on the return to Bristol Temple Meads from a bridge in Marshfield on the approach to Newport. With thanks to GJDobbzy.
