Join us for a magical journey through the highlands of Scotland aboard the Jacobite steam train, on the famed West Highland Line from Fort William to Mallaig. You'll see the train in the magnificent highland scenery, the lochs and the glens and the curved viaduct at Glenfinnan (Harry Potter movie train scenes were filmed on the West Highland Line, the viaduct appears in the flying car scene.) Full musical score written especially for this program, and the narration tells of the often bloody history of the region, and about Bonnie Prince Charlies uprising. Bonus feature - ride the ferry over the sea to Skye, and take a scenic tour of this beautiful island.

More a travelogue than a rail movie. Very little talk about rail and lots of talk about the scenery, which was very pretty. Once again incessant music from start to finish and no way to turn it off.

Additional remarks by Rail Buff:
Narration: Could have used more.
Would kids enjoy this? I doubt it.
Image quality: Excellent!
DVD Value: Overpriced for the amount of enjoyment I got out of it.
Recommend to others? Not unless they REALLY were interested in the subject matter.

This dvd of the Jacobite Steam Train is one of the best train travel shows I've ever seen. There are several scenes showing the train itself, however, the main feature shows the scenery as if one is a passenger enjoying the beautiful Scottish countryside. Enjoyed this production and only wish I could afford to go to Scotland to take this trip in person. Would like to add this dvd is not a promotion of the West Highland Line to promoting one to take the Jacobite Steam Train so the company can make more profit. This dvd has a greater appeal as a travel show than a business promotion.

Additional remarks by Marvin W. Reed:
Narration: Just enough.
Would kids enjoy this? Definitely!
Image quality: Excellent!
DVD Value: Excellent Value!
Recommend to others? Definitely.
