I thought it was a nice easy watch, I enjoyed the scenery, the banter and would have loved one of those bacon butties  :food:

Cheers John.

Much better program this week, journeying on the East Coast main line from Newcastle to Edinburgh and across the Forth rail bridge.

Got me thinking of a holiday SWMBO and I could take next year travelling the line with a rover ticket.

Then I thought I'd price it up. All the price reductions I could think of - old folks, Railcard etc, but go in style in First Class. :o

Maybe not. Try Second Class.....  :goggleeyes:

Looks like it would have to be a 'once in a lifetime' trip, cos we'd have no money left to ever do it again. ;)

Quite an enjoyable and relaxed format. Sometimes wonder if it knows where it is going though. Brings a different perspective to this type of travelogue.

Some "schoolboy errors" so far in each programme but nothing the ordinary viewer would notice.

Julie is a lovely guide and the railway scenery is stunning.

But the programme fails in its own mission. She says she is going to meet people whose lives have been affected by the railway. Mostly that's not true, though the bakers were an interesting example. It's sad that they can't justify a private owner wagon.  ;)

Why do these documentaries start with two minutes telling you about the series (yes, we know, this isn't programme one), and then a further minute summarising what we're going to see in this programme? Is it to give us time to make a cup of tea?  :hmmm:

Thoroughly enjoyed this episode. Good entertainment but if you take it too seriously then it will disappoint.
Next episode please.

I agree Bob. :thumbsup:  Like all these mainstream travelogue type railway orientated programs, they are never going to be about the trains per se. But this one has been better than most in that respect.

For me this is a good gentle slice of entertainment, which, in the words of Rob Brydon, is "just a bit of fun".

Liked some of the scenery shots of the branch following the edge of the river - that would make a nice model.

I have exactly the same jigsaw puzzle that Julie was assembling on the train!

I have completed it a couple of times over the years so I know it's in good condition.  Of course, when I want to take a quick snap to post here can I find the damn thing? - of course not  :veryangry:

I have seen another example on a 2nd hand trade stand at a show a few years ago, he wanted £50 for it!

I'm just not sure what part of the viewing public this is aimed at. :-\
I think, on the whole, I prefer Mr. Portaloo's efforts as they are factual. I'm really not interested in conjecture about smugglers and ghosts :no:
