The Titfield Thunderbolt - 60th Anniversary Collector's Edition  (DVD)
A comical and delightful tale of community spirit, written by celebrated Ealing regular and Oscar Winner T.E.B. Clarke (The Lavender Hill Mob, Barnacle Bill), directed by Charles Crichton.
When British Railways announce the closure of the Titfield to Mallingford branch line, a group of local village residents make a bid to run it themselves, backed by a monied member of the community who is attracted by the complete lack of licensing hours on trains. Unfortunately this puts them into direct competition with the local bus company.
