The Forty Mile Railway is the combination of both the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland lines, running from Caernarfon to Portmadog and then to Blaenau Ffestiniog. Our film traces the history of both lines through archive photographs, explaining why the railways were built. In the modern era the Welsh Highland Railway has been rebuilt, both it and the Ffestiniog Railway benefiting from the success of each other. See both Railways described from end to end.
Disc 2 features some of the many special events held, celebrating steam power on the narrow gauge, including visiting locomotives, as well as old favourites. See 'Lyd' at the Lynton & Barnstaple Railway, gravity slate trains, Garratt articulated locomotives on the severe climbs through Beddgelert Forest and much much more.
