February 18th 2019:
Dear all,

As we come to the end of the winter we have lots of news to update you with!

Firstly we have the first Volume of what we hope will be a four (possibly five) along the East Coast Mainline. This one is with No. 60009 'Union of South Africa' on one of its last on this section of line before her permanent withdrawal.

February 2019 also saw the return to the Mainline of 'Jubilee' No. 45596 'Bahamas' for the first time in 25 years and this short clip shows the loco on her inaugural run on the Settle & Carlisle, crossing Ormside Viaduct.

Also this month, Tyseley's original flagship loco, No. 7029 'Clun Castle' return to the Mainline after an absence of 30 years. We have a short video clip of her on her test run at high speed along the former Great Western Mainline to Birmingham.

In celebration of this return of one Castle, along with the recent announcement of Vintage Trains new program of railtours for 2019, our second Driver's Eye View features shedmate 5043 'Earl of Mount Edgcumbe' who was retired from service in 2018 after 10 years of sterling work. This editions see the 'Earl' retracing the footsteps of the old 'Cathedrals Express' trains, a regular express worked by Castles during Steam Days right until the very end.

We also have other videos updated in our Video Galley section so feel free to check these out!

Thank you all for your continued support and we at OVP hope to bring more exciting stories as the year unfolds!

March 26th:
Dear all,
Firstly we'd like to apologies for a delay in one of our releases. The release date for the Great Eastern Mainline has been put back to April 16th; this is because of the unavailability of the Driver we needed to speak with. However, we have arranged a recording session with him and we hope to have that wrapped up by the aforementioned date. Once more we apologise for any inconvenience.

Secondly, we have just wrapped up filming at the West Somerset Railway's Spring Steam Gala 2018. Hard to believe we have covered this event for the past 10 years! We aim to release this title also on April 16 so keep watching this space!

March 1st 2018
Dear all,

And with a new year, we have lots of new titles to inform you all about.

Mainline Diary 2017: our review of Mainline Steam events from 2017. Sadly this one will be the final video in this series.

Atlantic Coast Express: Recorded in September last year, 35028 'Clan Line' recaptures the spirit of this classic express train as we race along the mainline from Basingstoke to Exeter, including a dramatic climb on Honiton Bank.

Great Eastern Mainline: 70013 'Oliver Cromwell' has been one of the most popular engines running on the Mainline in the last 10 years, and we were very lucky to record its penultimate run before withdrawal for overhaul along its old stomping ground out. We hope to release this video by the end of March.

These are the updates from the first couple of months of this year. We hope to bring you more content and we will update once again around the middle of April.

February 6th was a big day as two steam locomotive return to the mainline scene.

While many, including the national media, went to see the return of 60103 Flying Scotsman, we felt it appropriate to cover the mainline return of another locomotive which has been a little overshadowed.

We are talking about the return of LMS 4-6-0, 46100 'Royal Scot', and her first run took place along the North Wales Coast and the picture link will show you the results of work carried out at Crewe. A big thank you to all concerned, and a job well done!
