Presented in collaboration with Tyne Valley Community Rail Partnership.

A bungling railway worker is given the job of stationmaster at a rundown station in rural Ireland, where his sidekicks are a toothless old gaffer and a portly young loudmouth.


Hilarious adventures ensue, including a locomotive chase after gunrunners make off with a train.

See this British railway comedy screened inside the Old Booking Hall at Haltwhistle Train Station.
