HST West & Far West – Driver’s Eye View


This Video 125 DVD set was first released as two separate products.

HST West

Covers virtually the whole of Brunel’s route from Exeter St David’s to Newton Abbot including the glorious section through Dawlish and on through Totnes, over the infamous banks at Dainton and Rattery to Plymouth finishing with a driver’s eye view of the Royal Albert Bridge at Saltash. Filmed in 1986 just weeks before the semaphore signals were abolished for ever.

HST Far West

This starts at the Royal Albert Bridge. The 75 miles from Saltash to Penzance contains 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. Once again, virtually the whole route is shown including the many single line sections. Filmed in 1990.
There are dozens of aerial views taken from a helicopter on both of the above productions.

Total Running Time – 180 Minutes
