Jim Clemens Collection No.10: Steam North of Swansea (60-mins) - (Central Wales).

Vol 10: Pannier tank 9621 at Swansea Victoria in May 1964, just before closure

A video of the steam age of railways in Mid and West Wales, north of SWANSEA with full coverage of the Central Wales line from SWANSEA to CRAVEN ARMS in both directions. The CARMARTHEN to ABERYSTWYTH line closed in February 1965 and this is a detailed look at the line in the days when Manors worked the services. Two branches ran from this route to NEWCASTLE EMLYN and ABERAYRON. These are seen in great detail worked by pannier tanks on pick-up and milk traffic. ABERYSTWYTH to WELSHPOOL and LLANYMYNECH was the Cambrian Railways route through Mid Wales and a return journey from the train and the line side is undertaken, all in Wales. Standard, Manors, panniers and LMS power, including a Jubilee over the Central Wales line, all feature in this production covering a beautiful part of Wales seen through the camera of photographer JIM CLEMENS.
