A racist white boy finds himself falling for a young Muslim girl

This modern love story set across the racial divide of Blackburn has some good shots of the station near the end and a number of contemporary DMU’s feature. Class 150/1 ‘Sprinter’ No.150147 arrives in one shot and a couple of Class 142 ‘Pacer’s’ are visible in others, including one in Welsh Valleys Lines livery that has transferred from south Wales for use with Northern. Note the shot of 142064 leaving the station which is then played in reverse so that it is approaching the station with its tail lights on! (Why DO they insist on doing this??)

In this shot overlooking Blackburn station a former Cardiff-based Valleys Lines Class 142 ‘Pacer’ is visible in platform 4 on the far left
Class 150/1 ‘Sprinter’ No.150147 arrives into platform 1
Although inexplicably heading towards the camera, the red tail lights and the green signal are proof that 142064 has just departed from platform 4 and is thus really heading away from the camera.
