Synopsis

While rail travel has always inspired romance and adventure, much remains undiscovered about the diminutive, narrow-gauge railways which, since the early 1800s, have traversed impossible terrain to link remote settlements with main cities. These tiny trains were an integral part of the steam age, and this documentary encapsulates the spirit and allure associated with the great little trains of the world.This fascinating documentary shows how a small gauge train from Tasmania, servicing the Bush Mill line south of Port Arthurwas transported to England in 1993 to operate on the beautiful Ravenglass-Eksdale line, and the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch line, the smallest public railway in the world. Encapsulating the spirit and charm associated with the great little trains of the world, this episode is filled with daring human endeavour, colourful scenery, engineering feats and remarkable characters.
