Shrewsbury-Ruabon-Barmouth.

A second volume of our land cruise around the Cambrian Mountains. This journey continues from SHREWSBURY to BARMOUTH via RUABON, LLANGOLLEN and DOLGELLAU.


Extensive coverage of SHREWSBURY is seen in the early 1960’s at the station and a detailed look at steam locomotives on Coleham sheds. Here LMS and GWR engines were serviced from Panniers to Black 5s, Manors and Granges. The station saw Jubilees and through and transfer freights behind 28xx, Manors, and Halls.


Journey north via LEATON BASCHURCH and GOBOWEN with diversions to WHITCHURCH and OSWESTRY. A visit to IFTON colliery and CHIRK to RUABON. Sun and snow at LLANGOLLEN LINE JUNCTION.


We continue down the Dee Valley via LLANGOLLEN where we see how it used to be in the 1960’s with comparative views of the preserved line from LLANGOLLEN to CARROG using 1980’s and 1990’s views of visiting engines to this railway. Some home based engines as well!


On to BALA and DOLGELLAU in 1964. Finally MORFA MAWDDACH and BARMOUTH, even track recovery trains on the Dee valley route that closed in 1965.


Motive power seen includes Manors, Granges, Halls, 28xx, 2251, Panniers and 43xx. LMS Black 5s, Jubilee, 8Fs and 2MT, backed up by a few Standard Classes.


The scenery on this route is again superb forming a great backdrop for the steam action on these main and secondary lines. Some views date from 1959, one from 1930, in this comprehensive account of the line from SHREWSBURY to BARMOUTH via the Dee Valley.
