This is a great little film from 1955 where railway workers rescue a goods train stuck in a snow drift at Bleath Gill.
It takes a lot of workers, a big snow plough, some burning rags and a lot of elbow grease.
The railway was the Statinmore railway and the engine was 78018, the railway closed in 1962 but the engine survived into preservation via a trip to the infamous Woodham Brothers scrapyard.Read more at Bleath Gill: Whatever Happened to the Heroes?
