Various stories surrounding race-goers as they journey to the Derby at Epsom
This enjoyable and well thought of drama includes some scenes at Tattenham Corner station of arriving race day specials made up of various Southern Railway EMU’s. 2 NOL and 4 SUB types are in evidence. There is also a run by of a pair of 2 NOL units at an unconfirmed location, thought to be Richmond. The race footage in the film is from the 1949 Derby, which was won by a horse called Nimbus. This name is familiar to all railway enthusiasts as it was one of the famous Deltic ‘racehorses’.
