The appearance and function of the trains of the time are discussed, particularly the part played by freight transportation, which was an important aspect of the railway system. Accidents, strikes and court cases from the time are also discussed, such as the TVR strike, a law case between two railway companies which eventually went to the Court of Appeal, and a collision at Tylwch in mid Wales.
