Four young offenders on community service cross paths with inbred locals from a rural Yorkshire village
This blood splashing comedy horror has a sequence whereby the young offenders are stripping abandoned railway carriages of reusable parts. There is a large collection of Mk2 vehicles in a number of liveries that include Regional Railways, InterCity, Waterman Railways, Anglia, Network SouthEast, BR blue & grey and Northern Ireland Railways. This was filmed on the Dalton Airfield Industrial Estate near Thirsk, North Yorkshire, and at least fifteen stored coaches are present (as many as 34 had once been on site). Identifiable are Mk.2A BSO No.9435; Mk.2C SO No.6400; Mk.2C Micro Buffet No.6510; Mk.2B TSO No.5449; Mk.2B TSO No.5494; Mk.2E TSO No.ADB977867 (a former staff instruction coach) and Northern Ireland Railways BSG No.914 (former BR BFK No.14110). The coaches were in store for a number of organisations and private individuals, having moved from nearby Sinderby when that site closed in 2009. Several were in a quite poor state after seven+ years in the open and it seems that few, if any, were in fact on track. The site at Dalton was itself also later cleared and all the coaches were removed during 2012 to Rotherham for scrapping. Apparently, we are told in the film that Mk.3 coaches are worth more than Mk.2’s yet no Mk.3’s are actually present.
