Last Wisps of Indian Steam 71 mins  DVD


This is an extended DVD release of a Railstuff film unavailable since 2004, which features some of the very last regular steam workings in India, on the Western Railway.

Classes seen are metre gauge YP class Pacifics, and YG class 2-8-2s; the Pacifics predominate in the first section, shot in January 1997 and showing workings between Udaipur City, Mavli Junction and Bari Sadri, whilst it is mainly Mikados in the second section, powering what really were the final steam workings, between Wankaner Junction to Maliya Miyana via Dahinsara.

It can't be said that one of the last truly great steam shows went out in a blaze of glory, but it did go in some style, as is evident here.
