In November 2006 this amazing 2 foot narrow gauge railway was filmed in superb weather. The whole journey is recorded with the usual GWP quality and informative script. This is probably the best video yet made of this World Heritage Railway.

About "Darjeeling Himalayan Railway"

The Monsoon was only just over when this video was shot in the autumn of 2006. So the weather was bright, the air was warm and every leaf seemed a vibrant green, to show the amazing DHR in unaccustomed glory. Here is the entertaining, yet detailed exploration of the wonderful sights to be seen. Included are clear maps, to explain just why the railway is unique and how it manages to climb so high over such difficult terrain with its 6 reverses and 3 loops.

Material from three cameras is expertly joined together to follow two special charter and two service steam trains, as well as shots of the diesel service and short steam specials. All combine to show the unique features of the railway. There are shots down from high above and scenes of whirling wheels from inches above the ground. There is stirring steam action with the small blue locomotives straining hard to surmount the gradient and vies from right alongside the chuffung beast. It is an evocative and informative programme, offering excellent entertainment and is probably the best video yet made of this World Heritage railway.

Running time total - approx 120 minutes

I was fortunate to visit this railway - it was an Fantastic experience. Whether you have been or not this DVD captures so well the operational difficulties of the line, it's amazing locomotives and it's environs. The song "The railway runs through the middle of the house" could well have been written about the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway. Incredible camera work of the highest quality. The more you watch it the more you see.
