Where was Indiana Jones 5 filmed?
Filming took place in the popular tourist spot of Grosmont with props, tanks, a guard tower and a steam train dressed in the colours of 1940s German railways and extras in Nazi uniforms.
The section of track near Grosmont was used to shoot a sequence based on a daring escape from a Nazi prison camp during World War Two.
It’s not the first time an area has been used as a Hollywood filming location with Harry Potter’s Hogsmeade Station using Goathland Station and Pickering Station being used in the Dad’s Army film.
The area is popular with tourists and you can go and see where the film and other films where made and travel on the railway, so make it a point of interest on your next trip to Yorkshire.
