Railway Inaccuracies Fiction

Hi all

 

SWMBO is currently reading "Woman in Black" by Susan Hill, which has been made into a film a couple of years ago starring Harry Potter Daniel Radcliffe.

 

In it a railway journey is described:

King's Cross to Crewe and the locomotive pulling the train was "Sir Bedivere" :scratchhead:

 

If film makers rely on that sort information for their adaptions, little wonder there are so many errors!

It never ceases to amaze me how little research effort some authors put into their work. However, as long as you have the 'it's fiction!' brigade tolerating the situation, this will continue. Historical fiction is a case in point. Some authors go to a great deal of trouble to check their facts - others simply don't. Only a minority of readers seem to care.
