Product description

Special offer: But Railway Cavalcade and Flying Scotsman The Legend Returns together and save on the usual RRP.

 

Railway Cavalcade

The Isle of Man has the most extraordinary collection of transport systems in the world. Not just the oldest surviving electric tramway and the world's only vintage horse tramway, it also has Britain's only electric mountain railway, a Victorian narrow gauge steam railway, a Victorian glen railway and a mines railway with the narrowest gauge in the British Isles which leads to the world's largest water wheel, still turning today.

With all these railways running throughout the season there's a lot to celebrate and each year the Island puts on a spectacular series of events. 2016 saw the 140th anniversary of the Douglas Bay Horse Tramway as well as special transport festivals featuring travelling post offices, World War II re-enactments with military vehicles, a crashed spitfire on the mountain, musical entertainment and lots of opportunities for enthusiasts to enjoy special runs on both the steam and electric systems. 

This DVD covers all of the main events and gives a general background to the remarkable railways that have survived on the Isle of Man. Using the latest cameras along with drone footage, this is an intimate and remarkable record of just one year in the world's premier railway destination.

 

Flying Scotsman The Legend Returns

In May 2016 the iconic Flying Scotsman returned to Britain’s rails after an absence of over ten years and a £4.5m restoration in the care of the National Railway Museum.

The world’s most famous locomotive will be re-launched in 2016 and in May, following trials over the preceding months, will embark upon a triumphant tour of Great Britain where it will be greeted with huge enthusiasm and affection by an adoring public.

Britain’s press has fallen in love with Flying Scotsman all over again, with huge coverage of its homecoming tour on national TV, in magazines and across national and local papers.

Our programme will tell the whole story of Flying Scotsman, from its earliest days, through its decline and eventual salvation in the 1970s, to this year’s re-birth and restoration to public gaze in it’s famous Brunswick Green livery.

 

Using archive, contemporary footage and still images we will re-trace the Scotsman’s journey, frequently featuring a then-and-now approach as it steams through the same locations over the decades.
