The life of Joy Division singer Ian Curtis
This black and white biographical drama features a ‘BR’ train at Loughborough Central on the Great Central Railway. Some of the line’s preserved Mk1 coaching stock was embellished with ‘Inter-City’ stickers, one of which is TSO No.4630. No locomotives are seen, and little of the station is visible. The film was based on the biography Touching from a Distance by Curtis’s widow Deborah, who served as a co-producer on the film.
