No. 72 to Star in Channel 5 Documentary

On the 4th June – a film crew joined Peak Rail to film a series for a Channel 5 series called, “Walking Britain’s Lost Railways” which will be shown in the autumn, with the date still to be announced.

Filming took place on the section of line from Rowsley to Matlock using No.72 steam locomotive and inside and outside the engine shed at Rowsley, as well as shots from the footplate.

A drone was used during the filming and we are reliably told that the drone footage is fantastic, so we’re all looking forward to documentary coming up.  We’ll keep you posted when the date is announced.
