A woman at an English seaside resort is visited by an old flame

This drama is set in Weymouth and Portland and there are some excellent scenes near the end of the film of trains at Weymouth station. These shots show a Class 33/1 with a 4-TC set standing in the platform and a departure of Class 47 No.47074 on a rake of Mk1 stock. In fact, the shots of the 47, probably working a Bristol/Cardiff service, are very good indeed.

This not only is a truly wonderful shot, but this is just how I remember trains. A blue push-pull Class 33/1 with a 4TC set in blue and grey. This is the old Weymouth station, before its radical rationalisation.
The driver of 47074 looks back to see that all is well before gently pulling away.
The train moves off at the start of its journey.
