Birmingham Snow Hill to Shrewsbury in the 1960s

This video show parts of the former Great Western mainline from Birmingham Snow Hill to Shrewsbury.
It gives the modern viewer a feel for what the last years of steam, with their grubby, fading grandeur, must have been like.

Today the trackbed from Snow Hill to Priestfield is used by the Midland Metro.
