Scotland's Scenic Railways

Meet the people who work the railway and safeguard these iconic routes through coastal towns and rural villages, a breath-taking Highland landscape voted the world's most beautiful railway.

Beneath vast mountains and across open moorlands, Scotland’s railways connect coastal towns and rural villages through a breath-taking Highland landscape voted the world’s most beautiful railway. This programme meets the people who work on the railway and those who safeguard these iconic routes.  We follow in Harry Potter’s footsteps on The Jacobite steam train across the magnificent Glenfinnan Viaduct. We join YouTube sensations, Geoff and Vicki, who have visited all 2,567 of Britain’s railway stations and now travel on the Caledonian Sleeper on a 24- hour return journey to the UK’s highest station and we join two hundred lucky passengers aboard the last tour of a steam train as she says goodbye to traveling the lines after 50 years.
