From the DVD cover:
"To celebrate and record the veteran Class 205 diesel electric multiple units, Video125 presents a driver's eye view of the Uckfield branch, one of the last two lines to be plied by the DEMU's.
These unique trains have long been called "Thumpers", due to their distinctive sound. Now, after the units' well earned retirement, this record of their unmistakeble sound (from trackside and onboard) lives on in stereo.
Surprisingly the Uckfield branch is fascinating in itself. It is the stub of a former through route from Tunbridge Wells to Lewes. Nowadays the route features both single and double track sections. Following the fatal head on collision at Cowden in 1994, strict new operating procedures were put in place, including SPAD signals at strategic points. You will see these as the driver does, from the cab.
The line runs through classic Kent and Sussex countryside with, surprisingly, only three towns of any significant population. At Oxted, we take a brief look inside the signalling centre, and then our Thumper, 205 009, runs non-stop to East Croyden."
NOTE for anyone in N.Ireland, the "Thumpers" are the English cousins of the Class 80 and 450's used by NIR.
