Filmed in high-definition in 2007, we take a look at four railways in the South East which ARE 'Still Steaming'.

We visit the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway during the week prior to its 80th birthday.

Four steam locos and a diesel are seen in operation over various parts of the line, and we see an unusual non-stop special, which operated daily that week as part of the celebrations.

We visit the Leighton Buzzard Narrow Gauge Railway on Father's Day 2007.

We explore the line, courtesy of steam loco number 740, built in 1907 for the Matheran Light Railway in India, and diesel-hydraulic loco 'Beaudesert', built specially for the railway in 1999 using parts from a former 900mm gauge Simplex loco, which was used during the construction of the Channel Tunnel.

Vertical-boilered loco 'Chaloner' is also seen in steam.

The Sittingbourne and Kemsley Light Railway is almost unique amongst preserved railways, in that it operates using original rolling stock, hauled by original locos, over part of its original track.

We see manoeuvres at both ends of the line, as well as en-route.

Finally, we pay a visit to the Mid Hants Railway during the celebrations for the 30th Anniversary of its re-opening between Alresford and Ropley.

Two locos were in steam, Merchant Navy Class number 35005 'Canadian Pacific' and Standard Class Five number 73096. We see them both in operation on this busy spring Saturday in 2007.
