What a delightful little film. I knew of it but had never seen. It's set in the 40's or 50's and the story of a small village railway station being closed down. Lots of old stars in it too. On BBCiplayer smile

“The Titfield Thunderbolt” (no “s”)

I thought you would say it was on Talking Pictures as they are always showing the old movies. Love your typo, they would never have released a movie with the word 'tits' in it back then! 🤣

A wonderful Ealing Comedy. We have all of them on DVD.

It’s one of our favourites my husband and I have watched it numerous times. The original little engine The Lion used in the film is actually in Liverpool museum.

My DH loves this film along with the Norman Wisdom films, they drive me mad and always have done. Though he laughs so much at them you end up laughing at him laughing. He once got a whole cinema in stitches when they had moaned at a film and he started laughing it is such an infectious laugh.grin
