The team at the Lakeland Motor Museum in South Cumbria will enjoy national exposure on television tonight after taking part in filming for the latest episode of Channel 5's 'Walking Britain's Lost Railways.'

The programme explores old railway lines that existed across the county before cuts were made in the 1960's and also investigate how the community and industry were affected once the lines were gone.

Friday night's episode features the now disused Cockermouth, Keswick and Penrith railway line and how it went into decline following the end of the First World War.

In addition to this the programme will also feature the types of cars that were seen being driven in the Lake District during that time, a vehicle that was treated as competition to the railways.

The Lakeland Motor Museum, a home of a unique collection of 30,000 exhibits including well over 150 classic cars and motorbikes, was involved with the programme as one of their classics was used. It's 1925 Humber was used for the filming, and it was expertly driven by the vehicles' previous owner and long-term museum support Ken Atkinson.

Mr Atkinson, who restored the car himself was accompanied by presenter and engineer Rob Bell and by the heritage attraction's Operations Manager Chris Lowe, who last year celebrated his 25th year working for the museum.

Mr Lowe was excited to take part in the programme and have the opportunity to dress up. He said: "Having ditched my usual overalls for the day, we had such a laugh all dressed up in clothing from days gone by and driving around the lakes in the Humber really took us back in time! Ken was behind the wheel, which was a joy to behold as I think he knows that car better than he knows himself!"

Episode four of the series, Walking Britain's Lost Railways' will air tonight on Channel 5 at 9pm.
