A deckchair attendant has an idea to bring a film festival to a seaside resort

This comedy includes a couple of scenes filmed at Herne Bay station in Kent one of whhich features a departing train made up of Southern coaching stock. Despite the steam sound effects on the film, the train was in fact hauled by a Class 33 diesel, unseen at the front. The complete, longer take, appears in the Video 125 DVD Diesel and Electrics on 35mm and reveals the loco to be No.D6527.

The main station building at Herne Bay in Kent
And now out on the platform at Herne Bay, looking decidedly remote
The ‘steam train’ departs from Herne Bay’s island platform. The track on which it is running has now been removed along with the sidings to the left which are home on this occasion to some 16T mineral wagons almost certainly used for coal.
