Hard working 15 inch gauge steam locomotives travelling through the heartland of Norfolk on this wonderful little line. A delight for lovers of railways and the countryside.
In the heartland of Norfolk, running through outstanding scenery, the 15 inch gauge Bure Valley Railway hurries you from Aylsham to the Broads at Wroxham. It is a wonderful little line, following the course of a closed railway, the level crossings and river bridge, cuttings, embankments and a tunnel. Contrary to public opinion about Norfolk, the line is NOT flat and the engines have to work very hard to pull their long, busy trains up stiff gradients in either direction. So much so that here you will find the most powerful examples of their kind, with a stong chuff and a rapid pace.
The line has grown and grown in popularity, partly as there's lots to do in this beautiful holiday area. Some trains connect with boats on the Broads and a cycle pathway ad footpath runs along the railway for people to enjoy.
The video is an excellent memento of a trip on the line, it shows the trains, the countryside and the engines at full steam which will delight both the traveller and the railway enthusiast alike. It is an excellent programme telling the viewer much about the railway and its heritage with wonderful countryside views.
Running Time - approx 60 minutes
