This one hour volume is the second one filmed by Bill Cross on 16mm Cine Film during the early 1960’s.

Section 1:- Shropshire & Welsh Border Branch Lines (39-mins). This section features many long closed branch lines starting with a journey from Wellington to Much Wenlock behind a 61xx Prairie tank. Arrivals and departures on the Severn Valley line are witnessed at Berrington, Cressage, Ironbridge and Bridgnorth, with ex-LMS tank locomotives.

The Llanfyllin Branch from Llanymynech on the Cambrian is covered followed by an idyllic rural scene at Crudgington Station in 1962 on the Wellington-Crewe Line. The Cambrian Branch from Ellesmere to Wrexham features an auto-train with ex-GWR 14xx power.

A rare shot filmed in 1929 on the Bishops Castle railway precludes a look at the Shrewsbury-Stafford line at Newport. Colonel Stephen’s Shropshire & Montgomery Railway was always a favourite with enthusiasts and Bill Cross covered the SLS last day railtour to Llanymynech with WD 0-6-0ST No.193 in 1960. The Clee Hill Quarry branch from Ludlow is visited on it’s last day of operation and 46446 hauled freight on the Hanwood-Minsterley branch is a real gem.

An early DMU visits Park Hall Halt on the Oswestry-Gobowen branch and finally a goods train passes through the streets of Welshpool on the N.G. Welshpool-Llanfair Railway.

Section 2:- Cambrian Requiem (17-mins). This short section utilises the ‘‘offcuts’’ not used in Volume 19 ‘‘Steam on the Cambrian’’. Scenes at Aberystwyth, Borth, Dovey Jct., and Oswestry lead to Gobowen and Shrewsbury.

Section 3:- Return of Steam (4-mins). 1972 saw the return of steam specials to Shropshire. No.6000 ‘‘King George V’’ arrives and turns at Shrewsbury Station and 5596 ‘‘Bahamas’’ arrives at Hookgate Depot for servicing in her new red livery.

All sections are in colour except for Bishops
