Heads of the Valleys steam train heritage re-lived

Two trains that last ran in south Wales in 1958 have returned to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Pontypool and Blaenavon heritage railway.

The locomotives were built in 1888 - and pulled passengers and coal on the the now defunct Heads of the Valleys line.

BBC Wales' Gwent Valleys reporter Paul Heaney went along to catch sight of the historic return of the two engines.
