THE TITFIELD THUNDERBOLT

THE TITFIELD THUNDERBOLT
by Philip Goulding

A transportation war erupts in a small English village when the government decides to shut down the decrepit railway line. On one side is the bus company, pleased with the prospect of having a monopoly over the town's transportation system. Their opponents are the railway enthusiasts among the villagers, who persuade the richest man in town, Mr Valentine, to help them operate the line themselves. But runaway trains make this difficult, as does sabotage from the bus company.

Film shooting was largely carried out near BathSomerset, on the Camerton branch of the Bristol and North Somerset Railway

It was released first on VHS in 1993, and then on DVD in 2004.
