The Rebuilding of Sir Eustace Missenden is a special episode of The Dark Railway Series.

Plot Edit

In February 1961, Sir Eustace Missenden suffers severe damage after stalling on Parkstone Bank. Instead of having him scrapped, however, British Railways chooses to have him rebuilt. At first, Eustace is reluctant to be rebuilt, though when a works shunter tells him what could have happened, he accepts it and is taken into the works.

After several months of painful transformation, Eustace emerges from the works, looking very different indeed and feeling epic.
