Ingenious feats of heavy haulage 

Train Truckers follows the adventures of a family run crew of heavy-haulage specialists as they race to transport the heaviest, longest and most precious locomotives around the world by road, rail and sea.

This ambitious six-part series uses advanced CGI to reveal the engineering ingenuity of the crews undertaking these colossal feats. Rare archive footage reveals the secret history behind the featured locomotives and the dedicated people that build and restore them.

No job is too big for the crews to handle - whether it’s a classic steam engine like Britannia heading to a new home at a heritage railway or the brand-new Class 800 Intercity passenger train, fresh off a ship from Japan. Each programme follows as the crews test their engineering ingenuity – devising innovative ways to haul locomotives onto massive multi-wheel trailers then overcome challenges such as narrow roads, treacherous weather, weak bridges and heavy traffic to reach their final destinations.
