Keighley & Worth Valley Railway – Steam Train

This photograph shows BR standard engine No 80002 on the KVWR track at Oakworth station seen during the Winter Steam Gala this weekend.

Whilst I am not a train spotter I can understand the romance of the era of the steam train and as a movie buff one of my favourite films is The Railway Children of 1970. This film is based on the book by E Nesbit from 1905.

I saw a screening of The Railway Children when Jenny Agutter came to the NMPFT (now National Media Museum) and talked about her film career, having been Roberta in the film.
