    The History of British Steam Railways DVD - Description

    All aboard for a spectacular whistlestop tour of the History Of British Steam Railways!

    From replicas of the pioneering 'Steam Elephant' of 1815 and George Stephenson's excellent and elegant 'Rocket' through to the classic mainline steam express locomotives, thankfully preserved for posterity. 

    Watch the famous GWR 3700 class 'City Of Truro' 4-4-0 in action, Gresley's magnificent A3 Pacific 'Flying Scotsman', and the almost equally renowned A4 Pacific 'Mallard' which captured, and still holds, the world speed record for a steam locomotive at over 125mph in 1938.

    There's also poignant footage of the swan song of British steam motive power; we see the R.A. Riddles-designed BR Standard Class 9F 92220 'Evening Star' - the last mainline steam locomotive built for British Railways, and the last new-build steam locomotive to work on British rails until Peppercorn A1 Pacific 'Tornado' was certificated in 2008.

    The History Of British Steam Railways also takes you to see all the very best railway galas and anniversary festivals of yesteryear, with dozens of rare steam locos on display. Packed with lineside views, authentic steam sounds, footplate action and rare archive material, The History Of British Steam Railways also has fascinating reports on goods trains, narrow-gauge lines, mail trains and the role of steam railways during World War II.
