Dir: Sidney Hayers
Starring: Hayley Mills and Simon Ward

The hunt is on for a maniac who leaves a trail of dead after escaping from an asylum

This superb and greatly overlooked psychological thriller features good shots of Yatton station in Somerset, though no trains feature. A little later in the movie the car with Ward and Mills inside pauses at an automated level crossing as a train passes by. The level crossing is Huish (or Hewish), 1 ¾ miles west of Yatton and although we see the train passing, it is only shown through the windscreen thus precluding an exact identity. However, the express is typical of the 1970’s and consists of a ‘BR blue-liveried diesel on blue and grey coaching stock’.

The level crossing at Huish, as viewed through the car windscreen. The road runs between the villages of Hewish and East Hewish though the railway used the spelling Huish for the crossing name. The signal box was closed in 1978.
The train passes over the level crossing with the locomotive at the front a mere blur!!
