Like its four predecessors in the Power Hour series, this programme features a variety of main line diesel locos at full bore across the national rail network. There's nothing less than maximum thrash as the locos are either at full tilt or the power handle is wound wide open. And there's plenty of clag too!
Filmed over a 21-year period from 1991 to 2012, this DVD is seriously noisy so please take care not to disturb your neighbours!
