The fourth edition of the best-selling book, compiled by long-standing volunteer Jim Shipley, with many exclusive photographs and anecdotes about the filming of the 1970 version of The Railway Children on the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway.
Its 132 pages are crammed with memories from many railway volunteers and locals who worked with the film crew to help bring Edith Nesbit’s famous story to life here in the Worth Valley. There are also over 100 exclusive and revealing photographs, many previously unpublished.
Produced with the full blessing of film company Studio Canal, this enlarged fourth edition includes numerous updates and several new features, including an exclusive interview with Jemma Rodgers, producer of the new sequel ‘The Railway Children Return’. It also features an exclusive chapter on Sally Thomsett’s remarkable career and a revealing interview with the man responsible for the famous fibreglass tree which set off the terrible landslide.
There is also a fascinating look at the original film script where we discover the many changes, omissions and ad-libs made, often with humorous results – Can you believe Mr Fryingpansky? We also reveal some of the film’s unfortunate ‘bloopers’ and a few more fascinating facts.
All this – plus the original revelations which made the book’s earlier editions a best seller.
You can purchase this from any shop on the railway or online shop.
