The allies plan to rescue a Swedish atomic scientist from under the noses of the Nazis
Although the London Euston ‘station’ scenes in this brilliant thriller are studio sets, there are some real station shots at London Waterloo with a departing Southern Railway train and an M7 0-4-4T partially obscured by crowds on the platform. The film also features some rather curious matted shots that appear in part to be real, plus a brief close up glimpse in one scene of an LNER express that looks to be hauled by an A4 pacific, possibly No.2512 Silver Fox. It would seem that a lot more footage of trains coming and going at Waterloo never made the completed film, and shots of departing 2 BIL EMU’s can be found on Video 125’s DVD Diesels and Electrics on 35mm Volumes 1&2.
