In this DVD we take a detailed look at steam locomotive 71000 Duke of Gloucester, firstly with behind the scenes, in depth interviews with trust members and then through the lens of the country's finest cameramen. The unique Caprotti valve gear is explained in detail along with a tour of all the controls on the footplate. 

In the second part of the programme the locomotive is seen hard at work on some of the country's most challenging gradients and we travel on the footplate where the driver gives us an insight into driving a large express locomotive on today's modern railway.

Over recent years Duke of Gloucester has laid claim to many performance records and many of these runs are seen through outstanding lineside shots.
