Beauty Of Steam (DVD + BOOK)
Packed with stunning archive footage and rare black-and-white photos of steam locomotives, this book & DVD set will delight collectors.
The Steam locomotive is one of Britain's greatest and most beautiful inventions and generations have marveled at the power conveyed in its iron form.
But the mystical qualities of smoke and pure white steam give life to the locomotive and through the genius of design, it appears to blend magically with the scenery through which it passes
Although Britain's golden ages of steam ended in 1968, these 'living machines' continue to enthral people of all ages. Packed with stunning colour and rare black and white photographs, The Beauty of Steam portrays real working steam and beautifully preserved locomotives pushing across the landscapes of Britain
Filmed over the last quarter of a century, the DVD features wonderful steam trains as they wend their way through some of the most spectacular countryside, lakes and mountains that the British Isles has to offer.
