Dir: Harold French
Starring: Cecil Parker and Eileen Herlie
A drunken uncle manages to reconcile a lover’s quarrel
This film features a very rare shot of a train on the Princetown branch on Dartmoor. This was three years before the branch closed and the train is hauled by an ex-GWR 4500-series 2-6-2T. There are also some slightly more familiar shots of a train arriving at Cole Green station on the Welwyn Garden City-Hertford line, though in this instance we do not see the loco, only the carriages. The film was released in the U.S. as Uncle Willie’s Bicycle Shop, and is based on the 1948 Brock Williams novel Uncle Willie and the Bicycle Shop.
