GB 1970 1hr 41mins Dir: Pete Walker Starring: Robin Askwith and Janet Lynn
A naive young couple go to London for excitement
This typical low-budget sex comedy of the time is seriously low on morals, but features an excellent scene at Etchingham station in East Sussex with three Southern Region 6B Class 203 ‘Hastings’ DEMUs identifiable in the form of Nos.1006, 1033 and 1034. There are several shots of Etchingham signal box and some shots inside a ‘Hastings’ unit, but the trip to London is depicted with some further run-bys of ‘Hastings’ units and one of a BR blue-liveried 4 COR EMU No.3139, with an arrival scene shot outside Paddington station. Some poor continuity perhaps, but some quite rare railway scenes none the less. Once in London there is a shot of the frontage of Sloane Square Underground station and the film ends with another very good run by of ‘Hastings’ unit 1013. The DEMUs are working headcodes 22 and 33, Charing Cross/Cannon Street-Hastings via Orpington and Battle.
