“Bewdley to Blaenau: Forgotten lines in Wales and the Welsh Marches” uses colour cine film shot by rail enthusiasts in the late 1950s and early 1960s to look at the workings of branch lines predominantly in the Welsh Marches.
Beginning in Kidderminster on the now restored Severn Valley Railway the film takes us to Bewdley and on through the Wyre Forest to Cleobury Mortimer and Tenbury Wells. We then view the long-closed branch lines from Brecon to Neath and Merthyr and end with the last train on the former GWR line to Blaenau.
Both steam and diesel powered trains are featured.
