The Horsemasters was a two-part episode of the Disneyland TV show from 1961 which screened as a theatrical release in some countries. It was shot on location in England and it features excellent opening colour scenes filmed at Baynards station on the Guildford-Christ’s Hospital line, with a push-pull train arriving behind ex-SR M7 Class 0-4-4T No.30124. The station is masquerading as ‘Valleywood’. The feature length drama was based on the 1957 Don Stanford novel of the same name.
