Dir: Piers Haggard
Starring: James Wilby and Imogen Stubbs

A young gentleman visiting a rural area has an intense love affair with a village girl

This drama is based on the 1916 John Galsworthy short story The Apple Tree, and features scenes filmed on the Paignton & Dartmouth Railway using Kingswear station and a train hauled by GWR 4500 Class 2-6-2T No.4555.

The railway scenes open with this delightful run by of No.4555 passing Rosebay Willowherb in a classic English country scene. This was filmed on the Paignton & Dartmouth Railway and the coaches appear to be a pair of the line’s DMU trailer vehicles converted for use as hauled stock.
No.4555 draws to a stand beneath the overall trainshed roof at Kingswear
In a later scene, James Wilby sits on some milk churns having missed the train, which is just visible disappearing off into the distance
