Steam Driver’s Eye View – ‘The Cornish Princess’ (Penzance – Plymouth)
An exciting trip awaits us as we tackle the ups and downs of the Cornish mainline! We begin our journey east from Penzance, and soon pass through Camborne, Redruth, Grampound Road, Burngullow and Largin. Once conquering these banks – along with crossing over many viaducts – we gently sail across Royal Albert Bridge to our final destination, Plymouth.
Full description from the producer:
An exciting journey awaits us as we tackle the ups and downs of the Cornish Mainline, onboard one of Sir William Stanier’s mighty LMS Princess Royal Class Locomotives. On this historic run, she becomes the first ever LMS Pacific to work from Penzance. From here, we begin our journey east and get to grips with the steep gradients & challenging weather conditions of this scenic stretch of railway. We tackle the climbs to Camborne & Redruth, Grampound Road, Burngullow & Largin. Once conquering these banks, along with crossing over the many viaducts, we gently sail across Brunel’s famous Royal Albert Bridge, crossing the boarder into Devon, and to our final destination, Plymouth. A bonus feature also includes lineside sequences taken over the two days between London & Penzance on September 17th & 20th 2016. With live sound recorded from the locomotive, we bring the action right to you. This program also features commentary (including driver’s commentary), titles & locations. Locomotive Featured: Ex LMS ‘Princess Royal’ Class, No. 6201 ‘Princess Elizabeth’
