A freight train travelling between Kirkby Stephen and Barnard Castle has become snowbound in the Westmorland Hills in this short documentary, one of the most popular British Transport Films. The Motive Power, Operating and Engineering Departments go to work with snowploughs to reach the trapped train. The team eventually dig clear and thaw out the moving parts, and finally rescue the train - four days after becoming stranded.

Snowdrift at Bleath Gill is included on the 2-disc BFI DVD The British Transport Films Collection Volume 1 - On and Off the Rails - http://amzn.to/QuN9Dk
