Join us for this unique view along the Welsh Marches Mainline with an ex-Great Western Railway Castle Class Locomotive. Known historically as the ‘North & West Route’, our journey begins at Newport, before heading northbound, taking in the dramatic scenery as we climb to Pontypool & Llanvihangel. After a brief stop at Hereford, our journey continues north as we pass some timeless pieces of railway history, with plenty of GWR infrastructure dominating the scene, before we arrive at Shrewsbury.
With live sound recorded from the locomotive, we bring the action right to you.
This program also features on-screen titles & locations.
