    It looked a well attended event but seen mostly from the train as I was on the special from London. Pity unable to photograph the 'Titfield' as it passed us in each direction. Five locos in steam on the day on the line. Great atmos I must say and good weather too.

    Along with a few stills from my visit on the Friday, I've taken the liberty of reviewing the film to coincide with Titfield's anniversary.
    Enjoy!

    Quite amusing that your Titfield carriage is actually more authentic to the film than the original, being fitted with a bar!
