Shrewsbury, Welshpool, Bridgnorth, Cambrian Coast Route Part 2 B&R Vol 122 DVD
This second video about the Cambrian Coast Express takes a look at the section from Shrewsbury to Welshpool.
Shrewsbury is covered in great detail at the station and motive power depot.
Engines from both the Midland and Western Regions are seen including Castle, County, Hall and Manor classes, Duchess, Jubilee, Black 5 and 8F off the Midland.
There are Ivatts and Standards especially in 1966.
The diesel scene has some rarities. Besides the Class 37 there is a Peak on the Hookagate line, the Fisons weed-killing train, 08's on the oil workings to Abbey Foregate and the short lived visits of the Cromptons.
Preserved King 6000 "King George V" works the Centenary dining car set in 1979 and 5596 visits Hookagate yard.
A visit to the Severn Valley line when it was still connected to Shrewsbury from Bridgnorth.
The Minsterley branch with steam and the long single line route to Welshpool with Standard 4's and Manors.
Coverage of some of the Tal-y-Llyn specials also with Dukedogs. A very definitive programme of this section of the route.
Filmed mostly in colour this video has an authentic sound-track and informative commentary.
