Steam By-Ways Dvd




Railways off the Beaten Track.

An exploration of the long lost branches from the days of steam.

Away from the glamour of the main line existed a network of branches and secondary lines serving virtually every corner of the country.

A wide variety of steam power toiled away on an extensive system.

In this programme we explore the by-ways of the great days of working steam using colour archive film and some ‘past and present’ views.

Contents include:

Southern Branches: Featuring the Hawkhurst and Lymington Branches.

Western Contrasts: With former GWR motive power on the Marlow Branch and in the North of Scotland with the delightful line from The Mound to Dornoch.

Along the Cornish Coast: Featuring the line through St Agnes and Perranporth to Newquay.

Gloucestershire Steam By-Ways: The Berkeley Road to Sharpness and Aschurch to Upton Upon Severn branches plus the celebrated branch from Grange Court Junction to Hereford via Ross on Wye.

By-Ways through the Heart of Wales: The branches radiating from Brecon and the hub of a delightful system of long lost branches. Features the Brecon to Colbren and Neath lines. Plus the branch through Three Cocks Junction to Builth Road and Llanidloes.

Approx. 70 minutes.
