    If we are talking about the Jenny Agutter version, I believe Oakworth was filmed at Oakworth station on the Keithley and Worth Valley Railway

    Keighley and Worth Valley Railway - Keighley, Haworth, Oxenhope
    Certainly was - my avatar is of Jenny sitting on the bench at Oakworth in 2005. Three Chimneys is just south of Haworth.

    Some of the locations are visited on The Railway Children Walk:

    Haworth Railway Children Walk



    The 2000 version, when Jenny played Mother, was filmed on the Bluebell Line.

    The railway sequences were also filmed on the KWVR line. I'm not sure about other scenes but I suspect they were local.



    Will try to find out from a reliable source.

    The tunnel scene at the of Life On Mars looked a little familiar. Does anyone know if it is KWVR or do all Victorian tunnels look alike ?

    Just spoken to Jenny about those.

    The London house was in the Hampstead area, close to Swiss Cottage where there are a large number of red-brick Victorian houses.

    Jenny couldn't be certain where the riverside picnic scene was shot but thought it was up in Yorkshire rather than by the Thames.



    Hope that helps.

    I'd asked Jenny about this too but then missed your post when answering about the 1970 film - sorry.



    All the filming for the 1968 series was done around the KWVR and in the studio. No outside filming was done anywhere else.

    It's a different tunnel! Life on Mars scenes were filmed on the East Lancashire Railway near Bury

    such a lovely film. After watching another Lionel Jefferies film recently, 'The Amazing Mr Blunden' I've just bought the 'Railway Children' dvd to show my kids.

    The London house used in the 1970 film is in Gainsborough Gardens, Hampstead, NW3. I watched the filming as a child of 10, a metal arch was built over the gate for the film and remains there to this day. The house is on the left hand side as you enter Gainsborough Gardens from Well Walk, just where the road curves around.

    The tank loco was an ex-GWR or GWR-design Pannier Tank acquired from London Transport by the KWVR..not something to be expected in Yorkshire!

    I think I've located the riverside scene now but am waiting on confirmation. I'll try to visit it next May - hopefully with Bobbie.

    One of my pet hates - the anochronistically and geographically inaccurate use of railway locomotives in film and television.



    Do the same with an automobile or an aeroplane and they'd be the laughing stock of the industry.

    I wouldn't notice.

    To me, a car is just a metal box with a wheel at each corner and a plane is just a thing with wings. I can tell the difference between a car and an aeroplane but I can't tell one car from another
