Travel with us on the spectacular the spectacular Furness Railway from Lancaster to Barrow-in-Furness, crossing the shifting sands of Morecambe Bay. We've specially equipped a Class 153 DMU of Northern Rail with five cameras to let you have the best view of the journey.
From the comfort of your armchair, watch the stunning scenery unfold and see the driver in action as we follow this historic line, built originally to transport iron ore to the biggest steel making plant in the world. We cross Morecambe Bay's sands twice on long viaducts which give a perfect view of one of the most dangerous seascapes in the British Isles, where the tide recedes for seven miles. We see the station which was the setting for the classic British love story Brief Encounter, and pass the spot which swallowed up a 31 ton steam locomotive in 1903.
You can choose to listen to the well researched commentary which tells the history of this railway and describes the sights along the way, or switch it off to concentrate on the scenery and the sounds of the railway. And as a further added treat we re-interpret the classic 1952 BBC film, London to Brighton in Four Minutes, with our own high-speed run from Lancaster to Barrow-in-Furness.
