‘Black Five on The Jacobite’ Souvenir DVD & Blu-Ray
“When I first rode on The Jacobite Steam Train back in 2006, even the rain couldn’t spoil my enjoyment. But when it came to buying a DVD of the journey, there wasn’t one to be found. At least, not one I was aware of, and not one that used the same engine, taken from the trackside, as a single journey.
“With the world now embracing Hi-Definition, I decided to film my own trackside video. The engine in question was Black Five No.45407, ‘The Lancashire Fusilier’, and I returned to film again the following year. Fortunately for me, the weather remained glorious, allowing the footage to blend seamlessly.
“As the journey began to piece together, a sudden thought occurred to me. If I’d always wanted a souvenir of the journey, then maybe others would, too. And so, with that in mind, ‘Black Five on the Jacobite’ was born.
“Now I admit, it doesn’t cover every single minute of the journey – that’s a project for another day. But it is, I think, as comprehensive as any video out there today. And for those of you who go on to buy the DVD, I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I did making it.”
