Black Five on the Jacobite Dvd

Often described as the greatest railway journey in the world, this Souvenir film of the Jacobite Steam Train is for all those who've ever travelled on the train, and all those who've ever dreamed of doing so.

Filmed at over fifty trackside locations, this programme follows ex-LMS Black Five No. 45407, The Lancashire Fusilier* (*Sister engine Black Five No.44871 occasionally substitutes for distance shots), as she steams her way across viaducts and through tunnels on the forty-two mile journey from Fort William to Mallaig.

Hear the whistle of the locomotive a she curves the arc of the Glenfinnan Viaduct.

Follow the trail of pluming steam as she clouds the Scottish sky with white.

Presented without the intrusion of commentary, you are left to enjoy the sights and sounds of the locomotive in all her glory.

Also included is footage of the Fort William Junction Yard, as well as shots of the glorious Scottish countryside and the wildlife to be found en-route.

The casing includes a leaflet with information on The Jacobite locomotives:

Formerly named Sovereign, Ex-LMS Black Five No. 44871 was built at Crewe Works in 1945.

Like sister engine No. 45407, she served until the final days of steam, before being withdrawn in 1968.

Currently owned by Ian Riley, who purchased her in 2006, she was returned to the mainline in 2009.

She usually takes charge of the Jacobite afternoon service.

The Thompson/Peppercorn K1, No. 62005, was built by the North British Locomotive Company, Glasgow in 1949.

She was donated to the North Eastern Locomotive Group (NELPG) in 1972, who restored her to full working order.

Bearing the nameplate, ‘Lord of the Isles’, she worked ‘the Jacobite’ for many years.

Ex-LMS Black Five No. 45407, The Lancashire Fusilier, was built in 1937 by the Armstrong Whitworth Company in Newcastle.

She remained in service until the final days of steam and is currently owned by Ian Riley who has owned the engine since 1997.

She often works ‘The Jacobite’, as well as running mainline Steam tours up and down the country.
