The Titfield Thunderbolt - the story of a much loved film


Reprinted and back in stock. 

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 of this classic, and much loved Ealing Comedy, 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. But it also has a good, and often fascinating text

Large format hardback, 192 pages, and featuring 320 photographs and 9 plans. The photographs are largely in Black & White, but there are also some colour images.

Sheer delight!
