Dir: Richard Attenborough
Starring: Robert Downey Jr and Geraldine Chaplin
The life of British silent-movie comedian Charlie Chaplin
This brilliant and very moving biographical comedy-drama includes one scene filmed at London St Pancras station with Southern Railway coaches present, and a passing shot filmed on the Bluebell Railway with the line’s Southern Railway Maunsell-designed Q Class 0-6-0 No.541. The coaches in the St Pancras scene were borrowed from the Bluebell Railway, this being the first time that rolling stock had left the Bluebell for a filming contract elsewhere.
