Fleeing robbers hide out in an abandoned monastery by posing as monks
This crime comedy begins with a gang staging a train robbery, later described as ‘the smallest ever’! There are a couple of passing shots of Class 45-hauled expresses on the Midland Main Line leaving Elstree Tunnels, whilst the ‘robbery’ was filmed in Brent Sidings, Cricklewood, using class 46 No. D140. A number of shots were apparently filmed at Elstree Tunnels for use in the completed production and then never used, and these appear in the Video 125 DVD Diesel & Electric on 35mm Volume 1 & 2.
