Dir: Carol Reed
Starring: Rene Ray and Hugh Williams
The adventures of various holiday makers on a day out to Brighton
This drama has a number of good scenes filmed at London termini. Waterloo features prominently with 3 SUB and 4 COR EMU’s, along with several unidentified locomotives and a shot of a Urie 4-6-0 departing. There is then a shot of a pair of LNER A1 Class 4-6-2’s at King’s Cross and a scene at the end of the film with SR ‘Schools’ V Class 4-4-0 No.938 St Olave’s and an SR ‘Lord Nelson’ LN Class 4-6-0 passing each other on the approach to Victoria. Some of the platform scenes in the film do appear to be the real thing, though no doubt some sets were used for the train departures and the train interiors.
