A long-distance lorry driver returning to London gives a lift to a woman who later turns up dead
This crime B-movie climaxes with the criminal escaping on a boat train to Southampton. The railway journey features a studio-bound carriage with two very dark shots of passing expresses, one of which is an LMS service possibly hauled by either a ‘Patriot’ or a ‘Royal Scot’. The police board the train at ‘Otterbourne’ where an express pulls in hauled by ex-Southern Railway streamlined ‘Merchant Navy’ Class 4-6-2 No.35025 Brocklebank Line. However, the shots were filmed at night and identification of the station is thus very difficult. However, it was not Otterbourne because the Hampshire village never had a railway station! There is also a shot earlier on in the film of the frontage to Bayswater Underground station.
