B&R 135 Dvd: Steam in the Valleys, Part 1




Some steam lived on in the Welsh Valleys at least ten years after its demise on British Railways.

Starting with some Western Region steam in South Wales and a visit to the scrapyards of Cashmores and Woodhams, there follows a number of visits to industrial steam sites, mainly collieries.

These are: Brynlliw, Graig Merthyr, Maesteg, Park Treorchy, Wern Tawr and Mountain Ash.

A visit is also made to the steel works at Llanelly.

The industrial locations ranged from the scenic to typical industrial.

Hard working engines are seen, some of them now preserved today, including ex-GWR 7754 and 9642.

Approx. 60 minutes.
