Produced by GLOBE VIDEO FILMS and released August 2000.
This is the fourth and possibly most remarkable in the series of Class 37 programmes.
Material spans the years 1987 to 2000 and features many classic liveries including BR blue, large logo blue, red stripe railfreight as well as more up to date paint schemes.
Following on where Eclipse of the Class 37s left off we see astonishing action from Southern France where the Class 37s are assisting with construction duties connected with the new high-speed TGV Link.
This time we see them in action on the Southern steeply graded section where multiple type 3s tackle the infamous 1 in 30 gradient at Donzere.
Definitely a head banging session!
In the UK we see views from Cornwall to Caithness - literally, and view some of the most startling scenery in between.
Railtours, rare passenger turns, heavy freights; they are all here in what is likely to be another best seller.
Train details appear as captions and narrative has been deliberately omitted so that the truly distinctive sound of these locomotives is not compromised.

Just a note to say thanks to everyone at Globe Videos who have captured our rapidly changing railways. We're lucky that you made the effort, physically & financially, to get rail side in all weathers and locations, just so we can watch in the comfort of our homes. Hats off very high to he chap who filmed the 37s in France overtaking each other, on those fantastic noise encrusted gradients. Right place, right time. Thanks for the entertainment!
