The period locomotive seen in this film is called "The Lion". It was one of the very first locomotives in the world, and was built in 1837 to transport passengers and luggage on the world's first passenger railway line between Liverpool and Manchester. It was rediscovered in 1923 and restored to working order. It is now on display in the Museum of Liverpool. See more
