British Steam Railways presents a unique collection of archive films, specially commissioned footage, clips and stills on the theme of holidaying by rail. From the heyday of the steam express and camping coaches to organized tours and preserved lines, take a grand tour of steam on vacation. Less than two weeks after the opening of the Liverpool & Manchester Railway, the company ran its first excursion; within a few short years, railway services to resorts and popular destinations represented a booming business for many lines, some of which became tourist attractions themselves. On this special-edition DVD, relive the halcyon days of summertime steam, discover an island of railways, and find out what remains for the enthusiast today.
