An independent woman travels to the Hebrides to marry a wealthy old man

This classic romance features a rather surreal studio-bound train journey from London to Scotland with a dream sequence taking place. In one part, the station master’s top hat transforms into an engine chimney! Everything settles down by the time we are in Scotland though and we get one good shot of an LMS Class 5MT ‘Black Five’ 4-6-0 on a passenger train in the West Highlands. It looks to be number 5427.

As the train appears from behind a rocky outcrop we get a good panning shot of the locomotive, a’Black Five’ 4-6-0. It looks to be number 5427 but the last digit is partly obscured by the single-line token apparatus mounted on the cab side.
The train heads towards its destination and towards some stormy weather judging by the clouds.
