In the late 1950s and early 1960s, the BBC broadcast a series of television programmes called Railway Roundabout, featuring train lines which proved to be on the point of closure and locomotives that were about to disappear forever. This archive film footage has been transformed by Ian Allan and is now available as nine separate Railway Roundabout features, all superbly recreating the lost age of steam! Highlights of this fascinating feature include views of the 'Bristolian' in the days of steam and trains in action on the Lickey incline. The feature takes viewers on a journey to Ireland to see the Irish narrow gauge in all its glory, then back to Southampton harbour for more steam scenes. The Hayling Island branch is also included as is the Cardigan branch. Finally we hop on board the very last train from Abergavenny to Merthyr.
