Twenty one years after making his first railway video at the "Ratty", Graham has continued his close association with this scenic litte line. This programme gives full coverage not only of the railway but also of the wonderful landscape through which it travels.
The Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway is a seven mile long 15 inch gauge railway running through one of the most beautiful valleys in the Western Lake District. The film was shot In June 2009 and includes dramatic footage of the railway's steam locomotives River Mite, River Esk, River Irt and diesel locomotive Douglas Ferreira. Included are trackside and footplate action and magnificent mountain scenery. We also take a trip up the line with Peter van Zeller and River Esk.
This Blu-ray was filmed and directed by Graham Whistler with the full cooperation of the Railway. The script was written and narrated by Peter van Zeller driver of River Esk.
GWP have been producing high quality railway films for over 22 years always using the latest broadcast quality equipment.
Running time - approx 95 minutes.
