A celebration of a unique aspect of railway operation - plus 2 bonus footage items.


The Great Western Branch was regarded by many as unique, with a charager that set them apart from the rest of the network.

Most succumbed to the closures of the post war years. The survivors have changed beyond all recognition. This programme is a celebration of the by-ways of the Great Western Railway, it uses a wealth of colour and black & white archive film to recreate a by-gone era.
