The set of the Mission Impossible 7 movie in Derbyshire has captivated residents in recent months – but now filming has come to a close and it appears the area is returning to normal once again.

A major train crash scene involving a replica steam locomotive was filmed last month at the former Darlton Quarry, in Stoney Middleton.

The Mission Impossible 7 team – including Hollywood star Tom Cruise – also used the site for another dramatic scene involving a train carriage.

But Baslow resident Jonathan, who goes by @fish_fantastic on Instagram, has captured the train carriage being removed from the area as filming has now wrapped.

The carriage arrived in Stoney Middleton in May and was later seen dangling from the track on the quarry face, before crashing down into a lake.

However, the locomotive itself was delivered in August just weeks before the crash scene was filmed.

It is unknown where the carriage is now headed, but reports suggest it caused some disruption earlier near Horns Bridge roundabout when it crashed into a bridge.
