The 15 inch, 7 mile long Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway (also known affectionately as La'al Ratty) runs from the Cumbrian Coast through two of the most beautiful valleys in the Western Lake District.

This all new film includes plenty of action from three of the railway's resident steam locos and diesel Douglas Ferreira. See the new "Spanish Loco" including footage from Spain, its arrival and restoration in Cumbria. Steam trials of the new loco on the railway in December 2016 are featured, as well as Santa Special Trains.

The film will take you on the complete journey featuring River Mite with cab ride and dramatic trackside action. There are some amazing aerial drone footage of the railway, skillfully filmed for us by Chris Munn.

Filmed and edited with 16:9 wide screen high definition Sony equipment by Graham Whistler and Jeff Freestone. R&ER driver Peter van Zeller gave help with the script and kindly filmed the new loco in Spain as well as the railway's track gang busy with winter repairs.

Narrated by BBC's Nicholas Owen.

Running time - approx 85 minutes.

Graham, For various reasons it's taken me a while to get around to watching the new Ratty DVD, but last weekend I found the time. I enjoyed it very much, particularly the footage from the drone and of the Train from Spain. These both added a flavour of the unusual to the DVD. Thanks once again for your support for the Train from Spain (Whillan Beck) project! Regards Mungo

An excellent DVD. The aerial shots really did give it an extra dimension, and shows the best of the area as well as the railway. Also it was good to see the unsung heroes of the track gang, and Santa trains alike. A very good overview of the railway now, which with the Train from Spain will make an excellent snapshot in time for the future. Every railway enthusiast should have a copy of this DVD.

A well presented DVD with some excellent run past footage.the commentary was sufficient to inform,then left you to listen to the sounds of the trains.The Drone footage gave a new perspective to the line,but was not over done.The sequence of volunteers at work showed another side of preservation not just engines. I can thoroughly recommend this Film. Alan Church. 29.01.2017

Thanks also for the DVD which arrived yesterday and which we have already enjoyed. As always a superb production with your great camera work and editing. Also some great colours and very atmospheric shots in the Santa Specials and the trial steaming of the "engine from Spain". The use of the drone and the aerial shots added a great new dimension and as always Nicholas Owen was superb on the commentary. Just one suggestion from someone who has never visited the Ratty and that is a map of the route would have been nice. Again sincere thanks for a superb DVD.

Just watched the latest Ravenglass release last night, what another brilliant and well put together programme. With excellent both on the loco and lineside footage River Irt and River Mite feature prominently, but Northern Rock and diesel Douglas Ferreira are also captured, plus behind the scenes with the Train from Spain plus late 2016 views of the new loco on test runs, a must have DVD for anybody interested in Ravenglass railway.

(Regret not room for all; the very good review) That said this is a superb DVD – the quality of filming (including the aerial shots by Chris Munn) by Graham Whistler and Jeff Freestone cannot be faulted and the professional feel is enhanced by the authoritative tones of newsreader Nicholas Owen. I suggest everyone rushes to the Railway shops to buy one as soon as possible. Both ends of the line will of course stock the DVD which is also available in Blu-ray format.

This DVD arrived earlier today and I have just finished watching it. This is another railway that I have visited many times with the family and I am privileged to own all the Ravenglass films. This latest production has been very skillfully filmed and is a wonderful portrait of the railway. The shots of all the locomotives featured are superb! Congratulations to all involved in making this film. A great job!
