Goofs

In the first shot of the traveller down in the cutting, there are a number of concrete sleepers (or ties, the beams used to hold the rails together). These were not used regularly until the 1960s, and not at all around 1900. See more »

A lonely place

Charles Dickens enjoyed train travel(he was himself involved in a train crash at Staplehurst.UK although not injured) and always wondered about what happens in those lonely signalboxes at night. As a Signalman myself I have worked in those lonely places and could understand how the signalman felt. It's a good portrayal of the short story that Dickens wrote and was worth watching.
