With unprecedented access to Network Rail, train companies including Virgin, East Coast, First Great Western and Northern, and the British Transport Police, this fascinating six-part observational documentary series goes behind the scenes of one of Britain’s biggest institutions - the oldest and busiest railways in the world. Filmed over a year and across the country, this candid series gets to know the track-workers, train guards and management who are battling to keep Britain moving – where anything from suicidal people or an unlucky pheasant, to faulty signalling, cable thieves, and mother nature can all bring the railway to a grinding halt.
