DEMAND MEDIA    Book Number: 87429    Product format: Unknown

For many driving a steam engine remains an impossible dream. This 51 minute colour film shows that anyone can become an engine driver and that the key ingredients are commitment and enthusiasm. Most preserved lines rely on an army of volunteers and so becoming an engine driver means helping out in a variety of roles before you can take control of a steam locomotive pulling coaches full of passengers. In the programme Nick Coram at Swanage Steam Railway shows us some of the tasks involved, and life on the footplate, scenes from the small locos that gently run up and down the line as part of the Talyllyn Steam Railway. In contrast the film also features footplate scenes shot on the mighty Sir Nigel Gresley, an A4 Class loco and sister to Mallard that holds the World Speed Record for a steam loco. The 64 page magazine included is packed with wonderful photographs, illustrations and diagrams and covers different breaking systems and valve gears, footplate controls, basic railway signalling and more. It is written by a former BR steam engineman Brian Topping. Box set.
