Dir: John Mackenzie
Starring: Carol White and Roy Harper

A young and tragic single mother has an affair with an oddball rock star

This dreadfully depressing drama is based on the novel No One Was Saved by Howard Barker. The film features a railway journey supposedly heading to Brighton and although there is a scene filmed outside Brighton station, the railway journey itself was filmed on the Western Region with a rake of Mk.1 coaches. Although the locomotive powering the train is not seen there is a brief glimpse of a Class 52 ‘Western’ diesel-hydraulic heading past with an express in the opposite direction. The station that the train passes through is thought to be one on the Berks & Hants line.

There is a fairly lengthy sequence filmed onboard Mk.1 stock and in one view out of the window a Class 52 passes in the opposite direction
The train passes through a small station, but the name on the signal box is not clear.
A split second later and we get to see all the platform, apparently without any form of shelter or a nameboard!!
