Scotland Yard detectives investigate a diamond robbery and track the gems to a female criminal who specializes in fencing high-quality jewels

This short crime film was part of the Scotland Yard series, a series of 39 episodes produced by Anglo-Amalgamated between 1953 and 1961. They are short films, largely half-hour in length, that were originally made to support the main feature in a cinema double-bill. Each film focused on a true crime case, with only the names changed, and featured an introduction by the crime writer Edgar Lustgarten. Night Plane to Amsterdam was No.11 in the series. These films should not be confused with the BBC television series of the same name broadcast in 1960 which are unrelated. Night Plane to Amsterdam features one single shot of detectives watching the passengers at a railway station with a carriage in the platform behind.

This is the single and very brief shot of a train in the film. Is the coach in ‘Blood & Custard’, or ‘Chocolate & Cream’?
