New home search for The Railway Children's prop train

A life-size model train is looking for a new home, after completing a seven-week run of the Railway Children at a Cumbrian theatre.

The Theatre by the Lake, in Keswick, hopes it can find a home for the man-powered prop at a theatrical or railway museum.

BBC Look North's Alison Freeman spoke to Theatre by the Lake's artistic director Ian Forrest and pupils from Cumbrian schools about the prop.
