Product Details

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Starting with the urban Edinburgh Waverley train station built beneath the famously palatial North British Hotel and moving out to the tiny stations and routes kept alive by Highlands tourism, this video tour encompasses the Scottish railway system. Details on style and makeup of the engines, platforms, and tracks, as well as thorough histories of the various lines make this tape more for the railway buff than the travel aficionado. There are no interior shots of the cars and limited views of the Scottish countryside, unless you count viaducts and station houses. But narrator Peter Fairhead gives ample information on when station houses were built and what modifications have been made, along with editorial comment ("Aberdeen Station has escaped unnecessary modernization and it's a very civilized starting point for a railway journey"). This 56-minute tape will tell viewers which steam lines are still running, how timber hauling has revitalized dying freight lines, and how the cantilever design of the steel bridge built across the Firth of Forth allowed for warships to pass underneath. --Kimberly Heinrichs

From the Back Cover

SCOTLAND'S TRAINS TAKE YOU TO HER MOST BEWITCHING LOCATIONS. From her majestic Highlands to her ancient cities, spectacular panoramas of Scotland come to life with these breathtaking railroad journeys. You'll begin you adventure riding on the East Coast mainline; it whisks you directly into Ediburgh's magnificent station, flanked by beautiful green spaces and the ornate Northern British Hotel. You'll ride aboard a steam engine on the Strathspey Railway before the incredible West Highland Line takes you through Scotland's fabled countryside; here your train will be dwarfed alongside colossal, emerald-green hills. You'll also get a close-up look at several of the country's urban and rural train stations, many of them meticulously restored or preserved, as well as the rail yards at Thurso. Your final journey will take you from Glasgow's Central Station to the coastal resort city of Ayr. All of these journeys, as well as profiles of Scotland's impressive freight trains, make for an insightful and compelling look at Scottish railroads.
