About this deal

We want the Titfield Thunderbolt!” - Rapido Trains UK launches range of The Titfield Thunderbolt models with five new 1:76 scale models fully licensed by STUDIOCANAL. Thunderbolt needs coal, Pearce & Crump have broken vehicles to take away, and Messrs. Valentine and Taylor require the occasional top-up.

Always marshalled first in the train, this ex-GWR ‘Iron Mink’ van carries the necessary liquid refreshments required for the buffet car.)I understand that it is not thought the boiler on Lion when she was 'found' was original in any case, and I further understand that the intention in 1930 was to restore her to 1840s condition. How accurate that was, I wouldn't like to say, however, It is probably fair to say that the only period Lion certainty looked like this is post-restoration. To satisfy the demands of Thunderbolt’s firebox, the nearby Dunkerford Colliery is re-opened, making the Titfield line self-sufficient for many years to come.) Dan’s House’, aka GWR ‘Loriot Y’ No. 41989 with demountable Victorian coach body will full interior Ex-cons Pearce & Crump have finally given in and are using the railway for their scrap business, collecting smashed and broken hulks for breaking-up.) The Titfield Thunderbolt tells the story of group of villagers determined to save their branch line after British Railways announces its closure. When a rival bus company sabotages the newly acquired train prior to an official inspection, the villagers resurrect the line’s first locomotive, Thunderbolt, and, against great odds, obtain permission to keep their line open.

Rapido Trains UK is delighted to reveal a range of models inspired by The Titfield Thunderbolt that will be available in time to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the film’s release in 2023. These will be the most accurate The Titfield Thunderbolt models ever produced and are being developed with full co-operation of STUDIOCANAL, which owns the rights to this seminal railway film. Anthony Dawson doesn't think much of the accuracy of any of the L&M replicas from the period, and has Views concerning the brass-domed firebox put on the restored Lion.
