Leeds Engines in Film

All | Kitson | Manning Wardle | Hunslet | Hudswell Clarke | John Fowler | Booth

Locally made engines can be found in a number of big screen roles. The city itself has a strong connection to the early days of the film industry. This pioneering film work is covered in the displays of the Leeds Industrial Museum at Armley Mills

Sherlock Holmes: Joseph Booth Steam Cranes
In the 2009 Sherlock Holmes film there were several scenes around the part built Tower Bridge and many of these scenes show steam cranes as there were Joseph Booth steam cranes all over the Tower Bridge during its construction. Some of the close up shots show reasonably accurate representations of the cranes, presumably this is all done by Computer Generated Images (CGI) so it may not really count.
