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.
