Essential viewing for those interested in railways, even if you wouldn't pick these trains yourself.

Railway travel is very much under the auspices of Palin and Portillo, traditionally. Both have been doing their thing for years and become expert at it. I was not sure what kind of a programme Chris Tarrant might make. I ended up after viewing his three episodes being quite impressed. Two things stand out. Firstly this is one hundred percent railway travel dedication, and he's dedicated. He knows his stuff. Second, interactions with locals, all good, nothing phoney or staged. If he's frustrated, he reveals that, engagingly. I would certainly like to see more episodes.
