The Titfield Thunderbolt is a British comedy that follows cessation of a railway line that runs from Titfield to Mallingford and the ensuing aftermath of the incident. The inhabitants of the town vie to have it reopened under new management, but they face stern competition from a local bus company. The train is paramount to the town's success as it is a rural village and the majority of their profits are from produce that is sold elsewhere. As such, the farmers need a cost effective and reliable method to transport their products to be sold in other areas. Their competition is stiff and it appears that nothing is off limits as Vernon Crump (Jack MacGowran) will employ anything at his disposal to keep the train from being successful. The local residents must also comply with many rules and ordinances to make their train legal under the law. Other cast include Alec Pearce (Ewan Roberts), Hawkins (Sid James), and the Bishop (Godfrey Tearle).moreless
