Before deciding on the Camerton branch, also used previously for Arnold Ridley's The Ghost Train (1931), various other lines were considered, including the former East Kent and Kent & East Sussex. Both of these former Colonel Stephens' railways have been preserved in part and now operate as privately-owned Heritage railways. See more »

If you are, like myself, a fervent anglophile and a terminal railway enthusiast, 'Titfield Thunderbolt' is the film you've spent your whole life seeking for in vain. That charming tale of a village's fight to keep its railway line active celebrates British countryside, trains and traditional values in a quite irresistible way, enhanced by a great cast and a superb technicolor. Despite being not among best-ranked Ealing comedies, 'Titfield Thunderbolt' still is a great feel-good movie, one you're glad to see on rainy or spleen days.
