‘From The Air’ captures steam action, but from a whole new height. From shots no longer accessible due to tree growth, to shots filmed over water, this four disc DVD and Blu-Ray features footage from throughout 2023, filmed solely using drone technology.

This product features a mixture of mainline, heritage railways and narrow gauge action. Each of the clips included on this product have had their sound carefully pieced together, to ensure you’re able to hear the sound of the locomotive working hard and not a constant music overlay. Covering shots from the Scottish Highlands to Somerset and Devon; Norfolk to Snowdonia, what more would you need to recall the best bits of 2023?

Drone technology has allowed us to visit locations which are no longer accessible because of tree growth, viaducts which are too difficult to access by foot and opened up new shots filmed over water.

Footage captured includes a mixture of camera angles and shots, including tracking shots, filmed throughout the year at a variety of locations.
