Description

This unique DVD takes an evocative look at the home of the working steam locomotive, the shed!

We take a close-up look at sheds in New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia and Tasmania featuring both archive and contemporary film.

Overseas from the icy cold sheds of China, to the tropical monsoonal conditions of India, the steam locomotive is seen being lit-up, coaled, watered, oiled, maintained and the fire finally dropped at the end of the day.

Of special interest, the mighty Garratts or Southern Africa, archive footage from Willesden depot in London and the narrow gauge sheds in Java.

This is the complete DVD for the steam shed enthusiast!

Running time – 1 hr 22 min.
