Movie Star Halted by Jenny Agutter's Underwear Arrives for Shildon Restoration

Shildon Durham England United Kingdom - An historical movie star stopped in its tracks by Jenny Agutter's red bloomers is undergoing a £2,000 cosmetic make-over in the North-East.
Film buffs fondly remember the famous scene from "The Railway Children" when a young Miss Agutter and co-star Sally Thomsett waved their brightly coloured underwear at the steam train to warn of a landslide.
The Pannier Tank engine involved in the scene was one of several locos used in the 1970 film which was based on Edith Nesbit's story.

Now, following more than 40-years on the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway, in West Yorkshire, it has headed north to County Durham, for an overhaul.
Staff at Locomotion, The National Railway Museum at Shildon will restore the 80-year-old engine to how it looked in the film.
The project is the latest restoration scheme for museum staff.
Last year the team carried out a £50,000 facelift of the A4 class "Dominion of Canada" as part of a loan deal to mark the 75th anniversary of Mallard breaking the land speed record.
Volunteers, including Engineering Heritage Skills Trainees, will work on "The Railway Children" engine to help maintain old engineering skills.
Steven Hopper, 23, a heritage trainee, said:  "A lot of people who learnt the skills needed to restore the engines have now retired. This scheme is very hands on and so it means that we're making sure that the next generation of workers learn these skills. I saw the film "The Railway Children" when I was a kid and it's nice to be able to tell people that I am working on this particular engine. The trainees are in placements for 12-months and they will qualify for an NVQ level two diploma in engineering."
The engine was initially built for Great Western Railway (GWR) in the 1930s and it steamed into British Rail service in 1948.
It was sold to London Transport in the 1960s and onto the heritage railway, which will pay for the makeover, in the 1970s.
Currently the engine has been stripped back to its base coat.
Now forty litres of paint will be put on by hand to colour the engine in the GWR livery.
Richard Pearson, workshop and rail operator manager at Locomotion, said:  "It took a lot of work to discover the exact colour of the paint used. The engine is in quite good condition. Work started seven weeks ago and we hope to finish by early October. It's nice that this engine has a special interest for people due to it being in the film."
George Muirhead, manager at Locomotion, said:  "Restoration projects bring life to the activity at the museum. In this case it is great to have a locomotive that is visually familiar to a very wide audience and it is representative of railway heritage and from a much loved classic film."
The engine is to be at the Shildon museum and on show to visitors between October and the end of January next year daily between 10:00 and 17:00 with free entry.
The museum is to hold a Railway Children themed event on Saturday, 18 Oct 2014, as part of Durham Book Festival.
