caught a new program (well new to me) on TV over Christmas.

"worlds most scenic railway journey" which is a live coverage of the journey from Fort William to Mallaig aboard the Jacobite steam train hauled by a black 5.

Extra interest for me as we did the journey ourselves last year, all be in in much less sunny conditions!

Still available on channel 5's catch up service.

The Yorkshire Steam Railway: All Aboard
Channel 5, 8.00pm

The eccentric crew who keep the beautiful North Yorkshire Steam Railway on the rails puff onto our screens for a very welcome third season. This week, we follow trainee driver Phil as he ends up getting into a lather on a bank holiday; marketing boss Laura, meanwhile, comes up with an intriguing plan to try to brighten up the line during the festive season.

Tonight and weekly - there are other episodes to download

The last in the series was last week - Scandinavia down to Hamburg.
I consider them to be more 'travelogues' than a serious railway programme, as I do those of Chris Tarrant and Michael Portaloo.

There seems to be rather a lot of rail journey related TV at the moment. ‘Er Indoors is obsessed with watching Michael Portillo. She’s always saying “ooh, I bet his cologne smells divine”. I tell her he probably smells of Lynx Africa  :D

There was a railway program hosted by Julie Walters. It was quite good. At one stage she went into the drivers cab of a M.U. She asked if Michael Portillo had been on as she caught a waft of Lynx.
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.
