Crewe - Holyhead

Route Leaning & Refresher Cabride

Running Time:120mins



Your choice of delivery:

This 2 disc video is not just a view from the driver’s cab this is the actual Virgin Trains Route Learning and refresher video, made for the line.

It shows you all the speed restrictions and warnings, all the signal numbers, all the tunnels and their lengths and all the crossings and named civil engineering features. It also has information on the routes through the major junctions. So if you want to ride both ways between Crewe and Holyhead and see things as the professional driver sees it - this is the programme to watch.

The video was taken on historic proving runs of a Class 57 and Pendolino set but in order to cover the signalling changes made in 2005, footage from other train types has been intercut with the original footage.
