Video 125 - HST Far West
Saltash to Penzance
Class 43 HST - Driver's Eye View
Narrated by Anton Rodgers
This sequel to HST West (Exeter to Plymouth) begins with Brunel's
Royal Albert Bridge at Saltash. The 75 miles from there to Penzance
is so hilly that it has often been described as a "switchback".
It has the greatest number of viaducts per mile on any British railway
and such exaggerated curvature that there is only one dead-straight
mile of track throughout.
Virtually the whole route is seen from the driver's cab including the many
single line sections, semaphore signalling and Cornish Branch connections.
There are aerial views, trackside views and features on "Dobwalls" Railroad
and the "Bodmin Steam Railway".
