Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

Steam Locomotives are seen alive and well in the vast expanses of the Indian subcontinent where these engines are still a key component in modern Indian commerce. This film focuses on two locomotive personalities from the history of steam: the 4472 “Flying Scotsman” on its last non-stop London to Edinburgh run, and an impressive 1/8th scale model of the largest steam locomotive ever built, the Union Pacific “Big Boy”. Rated: G
