Opened as late as 1925, the North Devon and Cornwall Junction Light Railway was linked at its northern end with the Torrington to Barnstaple line which wound its way through the Devon countryside before emerging on the banks of the river Torridge.  One person who fell under the magical spell of the line was Ian Pringle who set out to capture on cine film the last days of steam hauled passenger trains.  Later he returned to capture the diesel hauled trains to the clay pits at Meeth and Marland and the milk and fertiliser traffic at Torrington.

With over 40 minutes of superb cine film, this programme explores the history and fortunes of these two independent branch lines.  Highlights include scenes shot in the final days of steam, the last passenger services over the line and a cab ride to Meeth in the late 1970s.  This programme has brought together a unique collection of cine film and memories of railwaymen who worked on the line to re-create the special atmosphere that existed on the railway linking North Devon and Cornwall.
