In a year that marks that 40th Anniversary since the return of Steam to our mainlines, we look at various working during the first half of the year, which demonstrate how far the movement has progressed and how Steam is now well and truly re-established on the railways of Great Britain. Featuring many significant, artistic and action packed sequences in which we see the very best of mainline steam raising the echoes and eyebrows! With so much variety and action, this DVD will give you endless pleasure and enjoyment for many years to come! The DVD features a brief commentary, on-screen locations and gradient subtitles.
