Steam Driven

Wednesday 19 July 2006 21:00-21:30 (Radio 4 FM)


It's almost 40 years since steam disappeared from widespread use on the railways, but the development of steam locomotives has never stopped. Technical advances in fuel, efficiency, design and new materials have been adopted and this 'modern steam' is now pulling many passengers and much freight in several corners of the world.

Claire Barratt meets some of the dedicated engineers working with modernised locomotives and hears about a new design on the drawing board for a 21st Century loco.
