Thomas and the Landslide - Christmas Special 2016

The days leading up to Christmas are always very busy on the Sandwell Valley Railway. This year frost followed by very wet weather cause problems but the day is saved by three young children.
This video was made in collaboration with the Pine Tree Junction Film Unit. Many thanks to Pine Tree Junction for shooting some of the scenes, constructive criticism, loan of stock and props, and for assistance with editing.
