Full steam ahead for this comedy classic!

The world-renowned Ealing Studiosí first foray into Technicolor is a ritotous comedic affair! When British Railways announce the closure of the Titfield to Mallingford branch line, a group of local residents make a bid to run it themselves, backed by a monied member of the community who is attracted by the complete lack of licensing hours on trains. But when the local bus company starts to use methods that are hardly fair competition, the project's success is threatened.

Uproariously funny and featuring a host of colourful characters, this classic British comedy is a treat for young and old!
