The Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch goes to war: The movie

A couple of years ago I wrote a post about the armoured train used on the Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch, a narrow gauge line in Kent that still runs today, during World War II.

What I did not know then is that footage of that train exists...

I enjoyed watching this video of the armoured train. In 1985 I was visiting from Canada, and toured the yard while they were working on the engines. I commented on the fact that they resemble the Canadian Pacific Railway steam engines, and they said that the engine they were working on (cleaning the boiler tubes) was modelled after the CPR engines of that era.
