The Ooty Rack 95 mins DVD


Now on DVD and considerably expanded, this film covers steam operations on the mountain rack section of the famed Indian metre gauge line from the plains up to Ootacumund, mainly from lineside, but with some on train sequences melded from older cine film. It also shows a few diesel operations on the upper, non rack, section of the line. The setting is spectacular, and you get added local colour and sounds thrown in for good measure. This is a rare record of operations on a unique railway, and now includes scenes from the UNESCO inspection conducted in 2004, which led to the railway being designated a World Heritage Site.
