GB 1986 1hr 36mins Dir: Christopher Morahan Starring: John Cleese and Alison Steadman
A headmaster on his way to a conference is delayed by a series of circumstances
This comedy features a classic scene at Hull Paragon station, with the ‘Norwich’ and ‘Plymouth’ trains formed of BR Mk.1 coaching stock though we do not see the locomotives. There are quite a number of DMU’s present, however, most of which are probably Class 108s, though a Class 101 is just visible in the far background of one scene. Later, just as John Cleese runs out of the station car park in a failed attempt to catch up with his wife, the front end of a Class 31 just comes into shot.
