Terrorists take over British oil rigs and hold them for ransom

This action thriller was not a success though it is enjoyable, and it features a brief scene early on with Roger Moore boarding a train of early Mk.2 coaching stock. It is not yet known which station was used, and the matter is confused further by the brief glimpse of Class 117 DMU set L411 arriving at Iver station, which appears in the middle of the sequence! The film was adapted by Jack Davies from his novel Esther, Ruth and Jennifer and was released in the US as ffolkes, only to be renamed Assault Force when released there on television in 1983.

This is the side entrance to the as yet unidentified station. The stone walls are a distinctive feature.
