This excellent programme has been written and researched by Peter van Zeller, who also gives the clear and informative commentary. Throughout the film the viewer is aware of first-class camera work, not only in the fine shots of locomotives in action, accompanied by superb sound, but also getting to the not readily-accessible areas of a steam locomotive. Because of its practical and enjoyable content this film is likely to be viewed many times over.
