Tax included.
The line along the North Wales coast from Chester, through Llandudno and on to Holyhead, has seen frequent excursion trains during the preservation era. Holyhead is the destination for most steam trains as the triangle at Valley allows the locomotive to be urned for the return leg; but some go to Llandudno whilst others use the Conwy Valley route to reach Blaenau Ffestiniog. With the exceptionof the last mentioned,the route is mostly flat with only short adverse gradients. This film follows preserved steam in action along the line, including scenes on the two routes into Chester. We first head west and then return east from Holyhead. There is also action on the steeply graded line to Blaenau including footage of the attempts to re-start a train that has stalled.
