Two films on one DVD! Take an hour long trip on the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, with cameras filming from the trackside, footplate and stations. Then switch to the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, journeying on the large, powerful locomotives needed to cope with the hard gradients as you steam through the beautiful National Park to Pickering.
Full description from the producer:
A new double feature DVD covering The North York Moors Railway and The Keighly & Worth Valley Railway filmed in 1998 and 1990 – Vintage Whistler ! About “Yorkshire Railways” Take a dynamic trip on the Keighly and Worth Valley Railway, up and down the valley on trains with locomotives working hard up the hill. See the Standard Locomotives on the Worth Valey working hard, as well as a lot more varied motive power featuring in the video. It is a busy hour of excellent shots from trackside, footplate and stations.
You will really see the character of this excellently preserver railway, plus glimpses of vintage electrics now long departed. This is a one hour long period piece made on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway in 1990, a bit before the line became so famous – but it was still very busy, even then! The North Yorkshire Moors Railway needs large and powerful locomotives to surmount its hard gradients with trains long enough to carry the traffic on offer. Then the train meanders through the beautiful National Park to Pickering. The video shows this very well, with lots of shots of the trains and the scenery. It is a vintage piece that still holds up today, with an informative commentary.
