This is 40 minute film which although primarily intended for children, has a few subtle points that will amuse older viewers. It is a story set in 1910. I saw it on sale at the Avon Valley Railway's shop at Bitton station as I thought it would make an ideal present for my brother Derek's 3 year old step-daughter who's mad about a certain blue tank engine. It is truly a delight and features some genuine Edwardian Gauge 1 trains made by the likes of Bing, Marklin and Basset-Lowke. Much of the action takes place in the signalbox and they've obviously an effort with those scenes.

You can find out more on their website at: http://www.juniperjunction.co.uk/

Highly recommended.

There are some nicely observed touches there: 'Tyer' on the repeaters, the switch handle for the block instrument and the really rather sweet miniature miniature train staff instrument.
ND: Why is there a door handle on the inside of my airing cupboard?
MF: Because it's the fire exit from Narnia.

I like David Lynch films. I don't consider incomprehension to be a barrier to enjoyment.

Well they would have been red back in 1910.

Indeed they would. I pointed it out as an indication of their attention detail.
