the titfield thunderbolt

On Saturday 27th February - at the point between setting up the new TV and set-top box and getting them to work fully, when we fancied watching something but could only get a DVD to be watchable, as happily I had managed to set that up - Bethan and I watched The Titfield Thunderbolt in the evening. We were looking on her Ealing boxset for a light film which we hadn't seen before, and that was it (we'd seen most of the good/light ones). It was really quite disappointing, and not up to much, which was surprising, and its name had endured enough to be very familiar.
