DRACULA (1979)

1hr 49mins
Dir: John Badham
Starring: Frank Langella and Kate Nelligan

In 1913, the charming, seductive and sinister vampire Count Dracula travels to England in search of an immortal bride

This remake of the classic Bram Stoker gothic horror is more lavish than others and features a very atmospheric night scene on the Bluebell Railway. It was the turn of Sheffield Park station to this time masquerade as ‘Whitby’, and visible through the windows of the signal box amidst much smoke and steam is the arriving train, hauled by SECR C Class 0-6-0 No.592. The coaches of the train carry fictitious ‘Eastern Yorkshire’ branding.

Most unusually, the train’s arrival is captured through the windows of the signal cabin on platform one. The locomotive is SECR C Class 0-6-0 No.592. Note the ‘Whitby’ station sign hanging outside.
