A dramatic train crash scene is to be shot at the former Darlton Quarry in Stoney Middleton.

Planning documents say a train – which is now on the tracks – will ‘run off’ the railway line on a ‘partial bridge structure’.

The locomotive will then fall in to a water-filled tank on part of the quarry floor.

It still remains to be seen if Hollywood star Tom Cruise, who plays action man Ethan Hunt in the Mission Impossible franchise, will be coming to Derbyshire.

Our photographer Brian Eyre has been to Stoney Middleton this week to take these pictures.
