The Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway in the 1950s



I travelled on and blogged about the Welshpool and Llanfair Light Railway a couple of weeks ago. Then, I wrote:
Originally the line ran all the way to Welshpool's mainline station, crossing the town by threading its way between buildings and crossing roads on the level. That route is now lost.
This video from the 1950s, when the line was still operated by British Rail for freight, shows an enthusiasts' special using that lost route through the town and much of the rest of the line too.

Is any of the route through the town still traceable? Would be a nice little walk I think.
