No expense has been spared in this super colossal production!
Fire and Steam includes the recreation of the building of the Liverpool & Manchester Railway complete with toiling navvies, bowler hatted ganger and topper wearing engineer.
Sadly, none of these are moving and the rostrum shot is one of several taken from that fount of all railway wisdom: "The story of railways" (a Ladybird achievements book).
Alas, this excellent publication failed to survive our passion for dumbing down. A search on the Ladybird Books web site brought the following response:
"Sorry, your search for Railways has not returned any results."
Perhaps Team Railway should invest in our future and help Ladybird to fill the gap?
