Full description from the producer:
The Llanfair Train
This charming line runs through beautiful countryside, a mixture of woods and farmland, green and lush. Its true light railway nature means that it turns and twists and rises and falls on improbable gradients. Delightful little Austrian coaches with balconies allow a grandstand view of the line or the locomotive and the trip is quite wonderful.
The DVD takes you on a memorable ride up and down the railway. The goods trains that ran before the preservation era are recreated, along with shots from Galas-Many wonderful scenes that visitors don’t see are offered, both from the lineside and the footplate.
The real atmosphere of this excellent railway comes across in the video. Prepare for an hour’s viewing pleasure on the little Llanfair Train!
