In our shop we have for sale a variety of railway-themed DVDs and videos, including some that focus specifically on special events that we have run in the last few years. The details of these are as follows.
- A DVD of our "Hunslet 150" event in 2015;
- A DVD of our "Steam 200" event in 2012; and
- A range of other DVDs, mainly with a local focus.
This DVD provides a superb record of the event that we ran during July 2015 to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the first locomotive built by the Hunslet Engine Company. As well as a record of the train operations on the railway, which included three visiting Hunslet-built locomotives, and the operation of two of their narrow-gauge locomotives on demonstration tracks laid specially on the site of the Hunslet works (thanks to Schneider Electric, who now occupy this site and who sponsored this event), this DVD also features interviews with former employees of the company who returned specially for this event.
This DVD is available from our shop at £8.00p. It is also available by mail order: see below for details of this.
The year 2012 marked the 200th anniversary of commercially successful steam traction, with the introduction on the Middleton Railway of the rack locomotives designed by John Blenkinsop. We ran a major event to commemorate this anniversary, which involved several visiting locomotives, including the replica "Steam Elephant" and the historic "Furness Railway No. 20".
This DVD provided an excellent record of this event, and there are still a few copies available from our shop at £5.00p. It is also available by mail order: see below for details of this.
We can supply any of these DVDs by mail at an additional cost of £3.50 each for post and packing. To order phone 0845-680-1758 (please, only between 9.30am and 7.00pm) and have your credit/debit card details ready. Or, you can write to us at - The Middleton Railway Trust Ltd (DVD), The Station, Moor Road, Hunslet, Leeds, LS10 2JQ.

As well as our own DVDs that are listed above, we also carry a range of other DVDs and videos on railway and transport subjects, and particularly ones that are relevant to the West Yorkshire area. It is not practical to list all of them here, but you are welcome to call in at the railway to see what we have got. For many of the standard ranges, such as those produced by Marsden Rail, we can order particular items for you. Our shop staff will be pleased to help.
Other pages give more information about other kinds of items that we have for sale, as follows:
