The Titfield Thunderbolt: Story of a Much Loved Film by Simon Castens.

Based upon research in the local paper, together with numerous conversations, letters and other contacts with those who either saw or were involved with the filming, this new book, for the first time, tells the whole story of how this iconic film was made just over seventy years ago.

Illustrated with beautiful images, maps, plans, new artwork and surviving documents, this is a highly visual record that combines the subjects of film, local history, railways and a canal, together with a beautiful landscape.

Includes details of all railway stock and filming locations, making it an ideal source of information. The book will also make an ideal reference tool for any modellers. Features 320 photographs and 9 plans.
