In 1860, a young orphaned girl is sent to live with her uncle, but she is troubled by a shadowy figure who appears and disappears

This short drama mystery from the Children’s Film Foundation is actually pretty effective. It also features excellent opening scenes on the Kent & East Sussex Railway at Tenterden Town station. A train arrives behind ex-LBSCR AIX Class ‘Terrier’ 0-6-0T No.3 Bodiam. As it departs, there is a glimpse in the background of unrestored Manning Wardle 0-6-0ST W/No.1955 of 1917. It later became the line’s No.14 Charwelton and is seen working in the 1995 film Cold Comfort Farm (qv). Thanks to reelstreets for the screen captures.
