The Severn Valley & Llangollen Railways
Two films on one DVD! The Severn Valley Railway film sees 60009 coming down the camera, a GWR Mogul rolling over the Victoria Bridge and the Pannier tank doing its stuff. The Llangollen Railway film features the beautiful scenery of the River Dee Valley traversed by GWR Castle locomotive Defiant. Also featured is a genuine GWR Auto Train.

About “Severn Valley & Llangollen Railways”
GWP made an award winning, hour-long video programme on the Severn Valley Railway in 1995. It has been digitally remastered and placed on DVD.
The award by the Royal Photographic Society was made for the excellent standard of photography.
Now the programme’s on DVD, that quality can be seen to real advantage for the first time, with 60009 coming down the camera, a GWR Mogul rolling over the Victoria Bridge, the Pannier tank doing its stuff – all the sights and sounds of the premier preserved railway in 1995.
The Llangollen Railway was videoed in 1996, the year that services were restored through Carrog.
The excellence of the scenery in the Valley of the River Dee is supplemented by the grace of the GWR Castle locomotive Defiant, as it gently chuffs along the valley floor with itd train. You will also see a genuine GWR Auto Train, with the regulator in the front cab of the auto-coach being used to control the 0-4-2 tank locomotive propelling. It is a compelling one hour’s delight of steam in action on this scenic railway.
