Higham Railway 2

Part of the ‘lost’ Count Zborowski home movie shot in the summer of 1924 by Sydney Bligh. This is an out-take from the film which was made in the style of Hollywood movies of the time. This clip shows them preparing the locomotive for a scene and travelling on some of the private mile-long 15″ track built around his estate. This was the precursor to the Romney Hythe and Dymchurch railway.

I am currently editing the Count Zborowski home movie, adding inter-titles to help convey a coherent narrative and piano music to suit the silent era period. I aim to screen this publicly on 30 March 2019 (after only 94 years in the making).
