Duration: 5 minutes

Mark Horton travels on Brunel's Great Western Railway along the stunning south coast of Devon. The line engineered by Brunel opened in 1847 and was deemed a danger at the time, since it was built so close to the sea. It is now considered one of Britain's most amazing railway journeys.
