US 2008 1hr 32mins Dir: Joel Hopkins Starring: Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson
Two lonely people tentatively forge a relationship over the course of three days
This charming romantic drama has a lot of location work in London, and also features a trip from Heathrow Airport to London Paddington by train. Emma Thompson works at Heathrow Airport and seems to be a regular user of the Heathrow Express. However, all is not as it first appears because despite being treated to some excellent run pasts of the Class 332 ‘Heathrow Express’ EMU’s, the interior shots show her onboard a Class 360 ‘Heathrow Connect’ EMU!! In addition to this, there is a rare shot of one of the Class 332’s arriving at Heathrow Central station, and further sets visible at London Paddington, including unit No.332005. The DVD extras about the making of the film provide us with a few additional shots of filming taking place at Paddington. In these the Class 332’s are joined by a Class 165 ‘Turbo’ DMU and some HST sets, one power car of which is No.43161.
