Uphill & Down Dale DVD: The First Wirksworth Assessment Trial Road Run, May 2014




Up Hill and Down Dale Dvd – The First Wirksworth Assessment Trial Road Run, May 2014.

Join the crews and the engines as they tackle the challenges of the ‘Ups & Downs’ on the first Derbyshire road run.

To see ‘Road Steam Engines’ at rallies and shows provides a great reminder of our engineering past, but these engines were designed to work and to travel the country pulling heavy loads.

As we follow the engines on this challenging road run around the historic area of Matlock and Cromford we are provided with a great demonstration of what can still be achieved with these vintage vehicles in the 21st Century.

For those who like to see road steam engines out running on the road this programme is a must.

Describing the route and follows the engines and their crews as they prepare and then tackle the very demanding ‘Up’s and Downs’ of the hills, valleys, roads, lanes and villages of the Derbyshire countryside around Matlock Bath and Cromford, in the inaugural Wirksworth steam engine road run in May 2014.

Approx. 100 minutes.
