This rare archive steam footage was lovingly captured on 16mm film by the famous American railroad enthusiast, Harry P. Dodge. Along with the rest of the series, it provides the unique and incredible story of the world’s railways in the ‘60s and early ‘70s.

In this program, Harry has captured the incredible variety of Asian steam, commencing in India with Bengali broad and narrow gauge steam engines, the exquisite Darjeeling Railway (considered by many to be the world’s finest railway), Jaipur’s meter gauge system, and locomotives ranging from the Pacific to a Maharajah’s private train.

This is contrasted with Japanese preserved steam, the wood burning locos of Thailand, Indonesian Tank engines and Malaysian light steam, while in Australia and New Zealand we find an equally delightful assortment of gauges and rolling stock.
