Driver's eye view
The South Devon Railway and the Cornwall Railway. Formerly HST West and HST Far West, both programmes are now incorporated into this one DVD.

HST West
We see virtually the whole of Brunel's route from Exeter St David's to Newton Abbot including the notorious seaside section at Dawlish.

From there we head inland to Totnes, over the infamous banks at Dainton and Rattery, through Ivybridge on the very edge of Dartmoor and into Plymouth itself.

We finish with a driver's view of the Royal Albert Bridge at Saltash.

Filmed in 1986, weeks before the semaphore signals were abolished forever.

HST Far West
This starts at the Royal Albert Bridge.

The 75 miles from Saltash to Penzance contains the greatest number of viaducts per mile on any British Railway and such exaggerated curvature that there is only one dead straight mile of track throughout.

Once again, virtually the whole route is shown including the many single line sections. Filmed in 1990.

There are dozens of aerial views taken from a helicopter on both of the above productions.

Features include the Atmospheric Railway pump house at Starcross, Dobwalls miniature railroad and the Bodmin Steam Railway.

Narrated by Anton Rodgers.
