Steam On The Speyside Line

Steam On The Speyside Line

Memories of the wonderful railway from Boat of Garten to Craigellachie. A magical journey into the past, visit this highly scenic line during the dying days of the much-loved D40s, the handsome GNSR 4-4-0s. Outstanding colour views taken in 1956 from both footplate and lineside, including stations, bridges, halts etc. 62264, 62265, 62271, 62277 are featured on goods and passenger workings. Travel from end to end in both directions. Enjoy action at Aviemore, Boat of Garten and Craigellachie sheds. Watch K2s on freight trains and D40s at Elgin. Ride a 4-wheel railbus. Admire 'Gordon Highlander' (in GNSR colours) in May 1960. Substituting for a failed railbus in 1959-1960. After passenger closure take a trip on a diesel-hauled (D6147) inspection train with fascinating action at Cromdale (D8030). Some early preservation scenes on the Strathspey Railway. A wonderful DVD.
