A new two part documentary about rebuilding the Welsh Highland begins on BBC2 Wales this week. Also available on iPlayer for viewers in the rest of the UK.
In April 2011 Wales’s newest and most ambitious railway – the Welsh Highland Railway in Snowdonia – was completed. For the many hundreds of volunteers who worked tirelessly for little more than the love of steam, it was a dream come true.
Full Steam Ahead tells the story of this challenging and, at times, controversial project. Volunteers, benefactors and a vast collection of friends and supporters completed the remarkable feat of turning a run-down old industrial railway into one of the modern wonders of Wales.
