Includes three programmes which look at the world of restored steam trains in Britain:

Steam Engines of BR - This programme takes a look at the some of the 2,500 steam engines built by British Railways between 1948 and 1960, and operated until the end of steam in trains in Britain in 1968. Now many are preserved on railways across the country - ranging from small shunters to large express and freight locos. Many of these were based on the old constituent railway companies, but British Railways did evolve its own designs which feature in the programme - such as the Britannia Class, designed for express passenger work and the Standard Class 4 tank. The most famous loco of this time is Standard Class 9F number 92220 Evening Star - preserved as the last steam loco to be built by British Railways, in 1960.

Steam Engines of the LNER - This programmes takes a look at the some of the 7,700 steam engines operated by the London North Eastern Railway until nationalisation in 1948. The LNER built some of the most well-known locomotives in the country - if not the world. The programme includes the V2 Class mixed traffic locos, represented by Green Arrow, along with many other examples of classic designs, such as the D49 Class, Morayshire. But the most famous locos from the LNER were 4472 Flying Scotsman and 4468 Mallard.

Forest of Dean Steam - This is a fine example of a steam society in the heart of the beautiful Gloucestershire countryside and also take a trip through the forest landscape and discover the history of steam, from Stephenson's "Rocket" and Isambard Kingdom Brunel's broad gauge right through to the preserved steam societies of today.
