Prestatyn to Dyserth Branch Line in 1968

Very interesting old video footage. Film of a 6 car DMU Special travelling up the Dyserth Branch (nr. Prestatyn) in 1968. Starting on the Prestatyn main line past the old gas works then up to Dyserth Station.
Back towards Meliden past Siambar Wen and the Dyserth Quarry (site of Dyserth Castle), past Graig Park (the old camp site), curving along the base of Graig Fawr and the Talargoch lead mines to Meliden Station train shed…

Many thanks to Dewi Davies for uploading this rare clip to You Tube.
