A Liverpool bingo caller finds himself in the middle of a murder case
This crime drama features the full hat-trick of Liverpool railway termini, in one film! Lime Street station features most prominently, with a train of blue & grey-liveried Mk1 and Mk2 coaching stock departing in one shot. In the background to this scene parcels vans are present and they include a very vintage Gresley brake. There then follows a scene onboard the train. Later shots were taken at both Central and Exchange stations, in their final years of operation. Finally, there are scenes filmed on the Piccadilly Line of London Underground at Aldwych, Holborn and Russell Square stations featuring 1959-built tube stock.
