    Nice, but I'll wait for the high speed version, like those old London to Brighton in 2mins ones, to view it all through.

    There's a company does lots of DVDs of train routes from the driver's cab. Railway Magazine occasionally has one as the cover free-gift.

    I have the Reading-Waterloo one, kept it because I live on that line and have traveled the whole length, in two halves (Staines-Reading and back, Staines-Waterloo and back).

    The filming is quite good, but the narration is a bit amateur. Gives assorted info about various sections of the line, including the history of various bits, along with details of any disasters that have occurred - but makes even the disasters sound a bit dull.

    Have you intentionally 'forgotten' Norways's contributions via slow TV? There are 4 programmes about railway trips, plus if you are 'really' into this kind of thing, also 3 others about Knitting and another 2 about Firewood! - all available via Netflix.
