Two children on holiday in Cornwall are rescued by a sheepdog when they become trapped in a disused tin mine
This Children’s Film Foundation family short opens with some wonderful and really quite rare shots of Luckett station in Cornwall, with a two coach train arriving in the hands of fomer LSWR Adams O2 Class 0-4-4T No.30207. The station was on the Callington branch from Bere Alston and opened on 2nd March 1908 as Stoke Climsland, only to be renamed Luckett within 15 months. The station closed with the line west of Gunnislake on 7th November 1966. The film ends with additional shots at the station showing a departure of a branch train in the hands of a BR Ivatt Class 2MT 2-6-2T. The branch train in both scenes is formed of vintage LSWR push-pull ‘gate stock’.
