Welsh Narrow Gauge Railways
Mainly constructed for industrial use, the historic Welsh Narrow Gauge Railways run through dramatic countryside and still operate with steam locomotives. Packed with exclusive film of the locos in action, this DVD includes stunning steam from the Welsh Highland Railway, Ffestiniog Railway, the Vale of Rheidol, the Welshpool & Llanfair Railway, Bala Lake and Llanberis Lake.
Full description from the producer:
The Welsh Narrow Gauge Railways run through dramatic countryside and operate with steam locomotives. The railways were mainly constructed for industrial use and most served the now defunct slate industry. Now they are all preserved and operate as major tourist attractions. This all new GWP DVD was filmed in 2012 and features the following railways: WELSH HIGHLAND RAILWAY Now fully restored and connected to the Ffestiniog Railway. Dramatic steam action with 2 Garratt locos. FFESTINIOG RAILWAY An all new update on this well loved 2ft railway ending with dramatic run of two FR locos on WHR! VALE OF RHEIDOL RAILWAY A dramatic 12 mile line to Devils Bridge from Aberystwyth. WELSHPOOL & LLANFAIR RAILWAY Featuring busy summer services with two recently rebuilt locos. BALA LAKE RAILWAY A friendly tourist railway with small locos and fine lake views. LLANBERIS LAKE RAILWAY This railway in the shadow of mighty Snowdon, like Bala also runs the smaller quarry 2ft locos. Filmed and edited by GWP with the full co-operation of the railways. Also available as DVD. Narrated by Nigel Williams.
