B&R .94 Dvd: Steam North of Swansea




Jim Clemens Collection Volume 10.

A programme of the steam age of railways in Mid and West Wales, north of Swansea with coverage of various stations along the Central Wales line from Swansea, Victoria Station to Craven Arms in both directions.

The Carmarthen to Aberystwyth line closed in February 1965 and this is a detailed look at the line in the days when Manors worked the services.

Two branches ran from this route to Newcastle Emlyn and Aberayron.

These are seen in great detail worked by pannier tanks on pick-up and milk traffic.

Aberystwyth to Welshpool and Llanymynech was the Cambrian Railways route through Mid Wales and a return journey from the train and the line side is undertaken, all in Wales.

Standard, Manors, panniers and LMS power, including a Jubilee over the Central Wales line, all feature in this production covering a beautiful part of Wales seen through the camera of photographer Jim Clemens.

The content is all archive film with an authentic soundtrack and informative commentary.

Approx. 60 minutes.
