There's a program in the BBC Four series The Golden Age of Steam Railways all about the restoration of two Welsh narrow gauge railways, one of which is the Blaenau Ffestiniog, as featured in Tony's great game.

It's a wonderful film, full of super 8 footage taken throughout the 60s and 70s during the restoration, and full of wonderful characters. Well worth a watch, while it's still on iPlayer.
[edit - this only works in the UK, sorry]

Most fascinating is the 'deviation', a large spiral built solely by volunteers, including blasting through a mountain! The building of the deviation seems worthy of an expansion Tony, what do you reckon?

Yes, sorry - I meant to mention that - it's why I put UK in the post title. I've added that to the post now.

Thank you so much for sharing this link. Me and my fiancée will be going to Snowdonia on our honeymoon in October, so we're looking forward to seeing all of this for ourselves!
