Sorry Marcel this is not the loco from The Railway Children. That was a Lancs and Yorks class 25 AKA Ironclads. Originally No. 957 it's BR No. was 52044.
Just back in service at Keighley after a very long overhaul.
See picture #7666 and picture #7958

Marvellous that one of these was preserved given their early withdrawal dates in the 1960s. Remember non- condensing versions of these in Glasgow in my youth...........

Hi John,
according to Wikipedia: "A number of working locomotives were used in the making of the film, including MSC67, 5775, 52044 (Preserved as L&Y 957), 4744 (69523)"
It was this that made me assume this made an appearance in this film...
