B&R .48 Dvd: North Wales Steam Holiday

The railway route to Holyhead saw steam up to 1967.

Today it still sees steam on the Yns Mon Expresses but on a completely different railway to the 1960s.

Like our Volume 34 (B&R No. 34) on the Cambrian we begin our journey in London, at Euston, departure point of the Irish Mail.

Duchess and Britannia Classes are seen alongside empty stock workings.

We continue along the West Coast Main Line (WCML) through Rugby and Stafford to Crewe.

We stop off here for visits to Crewe Locomotive Works, the station with Duchesses, Britannias and Jinties.

On to Chester, meeting the GWR route from Shrewsbury and a fine view from the 1930s of Scot 6146.

Lineside through Mold Junction and Shotton to Prestatyn and Rhyl.

Holiday expresses pass through behind a variety of power and then a short visit to the miniature railway in 1962.

Llandudno Junction with Jubilees, Duchesses, 2-6-4 tanks, Conway with Scots and Black 5s.

At Penmaenmawr steam passes against a backdrop of the sea, Llanfairfechan and its zoo!

Bangor for more action in 1962.

We travel on the ‘Snowdonian’ through Caernarvon to Llanberis, steam hauled.

Finally we reach Holyhead in 1962 with Duchesses and Scots and the 1949 built TS Cambria.

Twenty different classes feature from Jinties and 4Fs to Patriots, Jubilees and Duchesses.

Two LNER pacifics and GWR Castles put in appearances.

Comparing the route with that of today, this is sheer nostalgia.

Approx. 60 minutes.
