The Cambrian Railways, formed by the amalgamation of several different companies, became part of the GWR at the Grouping and after nationalisation part of the Western Region then, in 1963, the Midland Region of British Railways. It retained much of its rural charm by the very nature of the countryside through which it passed and by its use of often vintage motive power which attracted both tourists and enthusiasts alike. By the mid 1960s however, many of its routes and stations had been closed and rationalisation and standardisation had destroyed much of its attraction. This album recalls the days before these changes were implemented and will hopefully act as a reminder of the special appeal of its routes and services.
