Steam Railmotor

Now, this isn't the kind of rail vehicle one often encounters. In fact, it was the first time in 77 years that this old Great Western Railway steam 'railmotor' (as it's called, rather than the more modern 'railcar') had been on the main line, from where it operated five trips from Liskeard at two-hour intervals during 11 November 2012, travelling along the Looe Branch Line.

This is a good video, well shot (apart from forgetting to pan once, at the start!) including scene-setting shots of the stations along the way and some nice scenic touches too. It's worth going through the full twelve minutes, but it isn't essential – although the tracking shot from the car, near the end, is rather good...
