If you are into modern traction and you want to ride both ways between Crewe and Holyhead, seeing everything as the professional driver sees it, the this is the DVD for you. This is a 2 DVD set.
This 2 disc DVD is not just a view from the driver's cab - in fact there are probably better quality track watching videos of that - if that's all you want! This is the actual Virgin Trains Route Learning and Refresher video, made for the line. It shows you all the speed restrictions and warnings, all the signal numbers, all the tunnels and their lengths and all the crossing and named civil engineering features. It also has information on the routes through the major junctions. So if you want to ride both ways between Crewe and Holyhead and see things as the professional driver sees it - this is the programme to watch.
In order to make the journey fit onto 2 video discs, some of the sequences have been speeded up by 25%. The video was taken on historic proving runs of a Class 57 and Pendolino set, but in order to cover the signalling changes made in 2005, footage from other train types has been intercut with the original footage.
Running Time - over 3 hours on 2 discs
