Travel with us as we ride on board engine number 4, Loch for the 56 minute journey from coast to coast and you'll get a taste for the action like never before. As you'd expect from Great Railway Videos we've really gone to town on the production. No fewer than five cameras record all the action. From the footplate to the smoke stack view you'll see the whole trip from a better vantage point than even the driver enjoys! And now it's also available in stunning High Definition on Blu-Ray disc.
The Isle of Man Steam Railway is a beautifully preserved narrow-gauge Victorian Heritage railway set in the spectacular scenery of the Manx countryside. It runs for nearly 16 miles from Douglas, the Island's capital, to Port Erin on the west coast. The line dates from 1874, and it still boasts the original engines and rolling stock which make this railway so special.
With 5 cameras to show five different angles you'll see more of what's going on, both on and off the train. It's a spectacular ride which puts you at the very heart of the action. But that's not all!
There are two soundtracks to choose from. The commentary track gives you everything - the wonderful sound of the locomotive accompanied by informative, knowledgable commentary to explain what you're seeing - and provides the historical background of the Isle of Man Steam Railway. But if you'd rather just immerse yourself in the enthralling pictures and the sound of a steam engine, turn off the commentary and you're good to go.
