Ludgershall, Sidmouth, Wadebridge, Barnstaple, Steam Routes West B&R Vol 85 DVD
Back in Volume 46 we travelled west the Western Way as far as Plymouth.
This volume covers the Southern route from Waterloo to Plymouth, a bit
like the Withered Arm video really. Along the way we visit various
branches like Ludgershall and Bulford before a glorious interlude at
Salisbury on a summer Saturday before the diesels came and altered the
Atlantic Coast Express for ever. Down to another summer Saturday at
Exeter Central via the Seaton and Sidmouth branches. Onto the Withered
Arm to Barnstaple and Ilfracombe. A long look at Wadebridge to
Wenfordbridge with a Beattie Well Tank even though the 1366 Class had
arrived. A brief view of the Callington Branch and finally Plymouth.
Plenty of Bulleids but many other types as well on a route that has now
changed or closed forever. A real West Country treat of steam. 60 minutes.
