Seller's Description

B & R Volume 19 DVD - Steam on the Cambrian

I quote from the box:

‘This one-hour full colour video has been produced from 16mm Kodachrome archive film taken by Bill Cross and sound-tracked to a high standard.

Section 1:- (33-mins) Filmed during the late 1950's and early 1960's, this is a unique record of Steam traction on the former lines of the Cambrian Railways as it was at the end. Nearly every major area is covered from Whitchurch on the Shropshire border to Barmouth and Pwllheli on the northern coast line and Aberystwyth its western terminus. The Sight of the evening train pulling out of Aberystwyth on the Manchester & Milford section bound for Carmarthen, ‘Bradley Manor’ resplendent with white buffers after bringing in the down ‘Cambrian Coast Express’; exciting footplate shots are included and there is a fine scene of trains crossing Barmouth Bridge. Borth and Dovey Jct. are well covered and there are nostalgic scenes on the Mid-Wales section including Moat Lane Jct, Llanidloes, Rhayader and Three Cocks Jct.

Busy scenes in Oswestry, the former hub of the system, with trains pulling out for Llanfyllyn & Whitchurch not forgetting the steam auto service for Gobowen. We see steam at the almost forgotten stations on the now lifted portions of the system. Ellesmere, Tinkers Green and Fenns Bank on the Oswestry section; Pantydwr and Builth Wells on the Mid-Wales line. No longer will the up evenin be filmed on the 1 -in-50 eastbound gradient of Talerddig and afternoon shoppers will never again alight on the deserted platform at Llanidloes. Anthony, Bradley, Erlestoke, Hook Norton, Lydham and Odney Manors feature in this volume.  

Section 2:- (14-mins) Titled ‘Service Suspended" we see five services that are no longer with us.  A DMU arrives and departs from Caernarvon Station in 1970, a rare piece of film taken in 1927 shows the Corris Railway in passenger days (Black & White); a local train arrives and departs from  Llanymynech Station in January 1965 - a week before closure of the line; Adams 02 Class 0-4-4T tanks are seen on the Isle of Wight System in 1959 together with Drewry Petrol Railcars and ex- London Transport tube trains in 1967; a DMU journey is taken on the down Wolverhampton-  Birmingham Snow Hill line just prior to closure in August 1971.  

Section 3:- (10-mins) A look at the Rheidol Valley Light Railway in the early 1960's when the locomotives were still coal fired. The loco shed was still beside the old harbour branch at Aberystwyth and the passenger terminal was outside the British Railways Station.

Running time is approx 60 minutes.

I am not sure about the compatibility of overseas DVD players with UK DVDs.  If this is being purchased for overseas use, please ensure that your equipment is compatible.

The DVD will be posted in a good quality padded envelope.
