GB 1958 1hr 04mins Dir: Darcy Conyers Starring: Michael Crawford and Keith Davis
Two rival children’s gangs in London decide to enter a soapbox derby
This family drama from the Children’s Film Foundation has a number of quite extensive scenes filmed around Battersea Wharf and Nine Elms Goods Depot. Although no locomotives are present, a whole host of miscellaneous wagons can be seen as well as a steam crane. Also, a very prominent feature of one shot is the old Southern Railway grain warehouse dating from 1936. Later, there is a scene filmed on Chelsea Bridge, and just discernible in the background, are some SR EMU’s passing in front of Battersea Power Station.
