This film ex­plores the old routes of the Great Western Rail­way and Lon­don and South Western Rail­way, be­gin­ning at Gun­nis­lake in the Ta­mar Val­ley, and then trav­el­ling around the en­tire county. We visit the strik­ing land­scape in the area of Min­ions, where the Liskeard & Caradon Rail­way once ran, and see other long closed lines, such as the North Corn­wall Rail­way. Hap­pily, some of the old branch lines are still in ser­vice to­day such as the at­trac­tive Ta­mar Val­ley Line, the At­lantic Coast Line from Par to Newquay, the en­chant­ing Looe Val­ley Line, the Mar­itime Line from Truro to Fal­mouth and the St. Ives Bay Line, which is among the most scenic in Bri­tain. All of th­ese are fea­tured with su­perb mod­ern film, com­par­isons with his­toric pho­to­graphs and in­formed com­men­tary.
