The Titfield Thunderbolt was restored and remastered at Pinewood Studios Media Preservation, Restoration and Archiving facility.

Pinewood Post Production spent over 100 hours in total on the restoration, bringing this much-loved film back to its original high standard

The newly restored digital print of The Titfield Thunderbolt screened at the BFI in December ahead of the DVD/Blu-ray release on 14 January 2013.

The film is about a comedy of railfans who take over their village's passenger train service (against bus company resistance) when British Rail abandons it.
