Reviews

Documentary about the rescue and restoration of one of the world's fastest ever steam engines. The streamlined 1930s classic locomotive Sir Nigel Gresley faces a demanding test run to gain approval to run on the railway network. This is followed by a nostalgic return trip to King's Cross - and an emotional reunion with three of her A4 sisters in York.

As a big fan of the A4 class, I was incredibly impressed with this DVD. The footage is superb througout, and the extras are great as well. The commentary is informative and interesting, and there is a superb soundtrack throughout the program. Definately worth every penny!

An interesting dvd with an overview of the overhaul and running of a fantastic iconic steam locomotive. As an engineer I would have liked to see in more depth the challenges encountered during the overhaul but this may not be to everyone's taste.
Interesting contributions from the loco's support staff, ex railwaymen and current driver and fireman.
Would recommend "Sir Nigel Gresley on the Settle and Carlise" as this gives a fantastic view of operations on the footplate and some fantastic views of some stunning countryside.
