THE WORLD’S MOST BEAUTIFUL RAILWAY

This series travels the length and breadth of Scotland’s dramatic landscapes to meet the train crews, the engineers and the volunteers who keep the railways running. We transport viewers back in time as we ride the vintage steam trains.

We take to the air to trace the route taken by Queen Victoria and we receive a Royal welcome as we visit a newly refurbished station. We ride the ‘Hogwarts Express’ at it travels across the iconic Glenfinnan viaduct and we meet the steam train crew who delight the thousands of tourists each year who come to follow in the footsteps of Harry Potter, and follow engineers on the Forth Bridge as they carry out essential checks while dangling on ropes underneath one of the world’s most famous Unesco Heritage Sites. Filmed on location from the stunning wilderness of the moors, forests and fields of Scotland we see the  breath-taking views that delight Scotland’s rail passengers from their train window.
