    I don't know about the story of two locomotives for the Orient Express film, possibly the main locomotive pictured, and now at Bassenthwaite, and a part "body with cab" for other views? It looks very different from the Tom Cruse MI engine which certainly is broadly based on a Britannia outline.

    The Brit mock up built for Mission Impossible and used to film on the NYMR, is the same one that was used in the stunt in the other day wasn't it?

    9F 92134 was used for filming of the new Indiana Jones movie on the NYMR, which took place shortly after the Mission Impossible shooting.

    As for the loco at Bassenthwaite, I'm sure it was based on a continental locomotive rather than a Brit.

    Live rail scenes for the film were also shot using surviving main line registered 241A65 in Switzerland and the moch up used for studio work
