An ex-IRA gunman is unable to silence a priest who witnesses a killing

This Anglo-American thriller is based on the 1987 Jack Higgins novel of the same name and it features a couple of railway scenes. The churchyard where the murder takes place was St. Patrick’s Roman Catholic Cemetery in Leytonstone and in one scene a train of 1962-built tube stock passes by in the background on a Central Line service. There is also a scene filmed on London Liverpool Street station and an early InterCity-liveried Class 86 electric on a rake of Mk.2 coaches is visible.

Mickey Rourke in St. Patrick’s Roman Catholic Cemetery, Leytonstone. In the background a Central Line train of 1962-stock passes by, but as it is the same grey colour as the headstones it blends in somewhat to its surroundings!
Somewhat more visible, a Class 86 AC electric stands idle on the left of this scene filmed at London’s Liverpool Street station
