From the cover: “History Of British Steam Railways: All the great steam locomotives of yesteryear are here, the 1815 ‘steam Elephant’ and Stephenson’s ‘Rocket’ through to the precious preserved locos. The programme includes ‘City of Truro’ (the first steam engine to exceed 100 mph), ‘Flying Scotsman’ (the world’s most famous steam locomotive), ‘Mallard’ (world speed record holder for a steam locomotive) and ‘Evening Star’ (the last ever steam engine built for British Railways).

The Flying Scotsman — Ultimate Profile: This DVD tells the story of the Flying Scotsman and features footage of her in her heyday. Her celebrated tours of America and Australia are covered, while behind-the-scenes material looks at all the ‘backroom boys and girls’ who have contributed to her preservation. We then take you on a ride in the Flying Scotsman’s cab as she tows the ‘Orient Express’ at 80 mph!

Steam At Work: Enjoy the power and spectacle of Britain’s uniquely rich steam heritage, kept alive on working steam lines today — lines like the Swanage Railway, North Yorkshire Moors, Kent and East Sussex and the Severn Valley. Featuring rare archive material previously i available, such as film of the Swanage Branch in the 1950s at the first track laying on the new Swanage Branch in 1979.”
