Full description from the producer:
On a beautiful summer’s day, join us on this exciting journey onboard a BR Standard Class 7 as we take on the Devon & Cornish Banks. The first part begins at Exeter, where we run along the famous Sea Wall at Dawlish and Teignmouth. We then head for the arduous Devon Banks of Dainton & Rattery, on the edge of Dartmoor, before dropping down into Plymouth. The second part begins at Par, and we tackle the long climb from Bodmin Road through the beautiful Glyn Valley, before crossing the Royal Albert Bridge from Cornwall back into Devon once again. We also feature a bonus sequence on the climb of Hemerdon Bank. With live sound recorded from the locomotive, we bring the action right to you. This program also features commentary titles & locations. We also feature Driver’s commentary, in which we look at how to driver a steam engine on this challenging stretch of mainline.
