Railway features in BBC drama
Two heritage railway attractions have become the latest spots in the area to be chosen as scenes for a new BBC drama series.
Three Victorian carriages from the award-winning Museum of Railway Travel, at Ingrow, were chosen to be included in the television adaptation of North and South.
Filming for the drama production has previously been carried out at Dalton Mills, Dalton Lane, which included staff at recruitment company Ace Personnel as extras.
Paul Holroyd, of the Vintage Carriages Trust, which own the carriages, said: "We are delighted to be involved with this prestigious production. Our carriages have been filmed at many locations throughout England and we have been privileged to have played a small part in productions starring well-known celebrities."
The three vehicles were two Great Northern Railway carriages, one of which featured in The Railway Children, and a Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire carriage.
Opening shots for the first programme of the four-part drama included aerial shots taken from a helicopter above the six-mile tourist railway. Mr Holroyd added: "It really is wonderful to be working with the qualified volunteers of our neighbours on the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway.
"The railway is an ideal location for filming, with its six stations, two tunnels, two level crossings, signal boxes and contrasting landscape, ranging from rural to urban."
The adaptation of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel North and South is scheduled for transmission in November.
Written in 1855, it tells the story of a middle class clergyman's daughter who leaves Hampshire to start a new life in the northern industrial town of Milton.
Gaskell's work also includes the biography of Charlotte Bront, published in 1857, two years after Charlotte's death.
Filming has also taken place in Burnley, Edinburgh and Selkirk.
