Ray Milland, Carnforth, Sir Nigel Gresley, Steamtown shed, Hollywood
Hollywood star Ray Milland is reunited with Flying Scotsman for its diamond jubilee in 1983. Milland, who was born in Neath, Wales, starred in the 1929 film The Flying Scotsman. The stunts shown horrified LNER??s chief mechanical engineer Sir Nigel Gresley, who insisted on a safety disclaimer being included in the film. However, this was the first full-length British feature film with sound and Milland was delighted to renew acquaintance with his old co-star at Steamtown shed, Carnforth. This Lancashire town was also the location for one of the greatest railway films, Brief Encounter. *** Local Caption *** Veteran Hollywood actor Ray Milland attended the 60th anniversary party of the famous Flying Scotsman railway engine at Carnforth in Lancashire this week.
