This was our very first 'Wired for Sound' cab ride, and such was its popularity that it started a whole series of programmes!
At the time of the original release of this programme on VHS, time constraints meant that its running time was limited to just 60 minutes. The forthcoming digitally re-mastered version on DVD will be almost double that!!
For the record, the 305-mile journey with 50 007 Sir Edward Elgar and 50050 Fearless travelled over some long-standing routes of the class.
Starting at Waterloo the tour ran to Salisbury and then via 'The Mule' to Exeter.
From there the train reversed before continuing over the south Devon banks to Plymouth and Penzance.
The farewell tour culminated with a run from Penzance to London Paddington.
This programme has just about everything - challenging gradients, serious thrash, fine scenery, plenty of sunshine and perfectly captures the day's historic events as hundreds of people turned out to witness the last Class 50 hauled train on BR.
And you can see and hear it all from the best seat on the train!
