There is a scene right at the end of this unspectacular crime thriller that was shot at the Buckinghamshire Railway Centre. The featured scene was shot in Quainton Road Down Yard with ‘diamonds’ being mixed with cement in the back of a lorry using water from the Down Yard water tower! In the background three locomotives are visible: ex-GWR 5700-series 0-6-0PT No.7715, rebuilt LSWR Beattie 0298 Class 2-4-0WT No.0314 and Hawthorn Leslie 0-4-0ST No.3717 (ex-Associated Portland Cement Company No.3). The screenplay was adapted from the 1972 novel of the same name by Gerald A. Browne.
