44767 George Stephenson

This is a stunning record of what is undoubtedly the most beautiful and dramatic steam train journey in Great Britain today. As well as the line from Fort William to Mallaig the programme also contains footage taken on the equally beautiful line from Inverness to Kyle of Lochalsh.
After a break of 21 years, the first steam trains ran from Fort William in May 1984 and since then the regular summer steam service has become one of Scotland's foremost tourist attractions. Our journey was filmed in superb weather conditions and features beautiful views not only of the train but also the most wonderful scenery.
With cameras on the train, at the lineside and on the footplate of the locomotive, the experience of the forty mile journey has been captured like never before.
The second part of the programme includes coverage of the trains that ran in 1997 and 1998 from Inverness to the Kyle of Lochalsh. The unique beauty of this part of Scotland provides a stunning backdrop to the trains which were the first to be steam hauled for more than fourteen years. We return to the Fort William-Mallaig line to see a selection of line side shots featuring some of the other locomotives that have worked the line in recent years. These include the unrepeatable double heading of K1 2005 and K4 3442 the Great Marquess in 1994, run to celebrate the centenary of the West Highland line. 44767 George Stephenson is also included along with 8F 48151, and B1 61264 which is seen on the return journey from Mallaig to Fort William, featuring footplate as well as lineside footage all taken in perfect weather conditions.
Scottish Highland Rail Festival 2000
Around 50 minutes of spectacular lineside and footplate action from the Scottish Rail Festival which took place in September and early October 2000. The locomotives taking part in the event were LNER B1 61264 and BR Standard Class 4 75014. With single and double headed runs over a number of Scottish main line routes, the event provided a very rare opportunity to recreate those BR steam days of yesteryear.
