This evening,I am presenting a couple of video clips of the famous steam train which covers one of the most scenic rail routes in Britain, from Fort William in the Scottish Highlands up to Mallaig and then back again. The return trip takes most of a day and well patronised. The journey is very popular with devotees of the Harry Potter stories in which the train featured as the Hogwarts Express.

Clich here for a clip of the train as it passes over the famous Glenfinnan viaduct. This structure is famous in its own right owing to it being the first concrete bridge ever built.

Apologies for camera shake which is due a combination of wind and precarious vantage point.
