Hercule Poirot investigates a series of strange murders

Loosely based on the 1936 novel The A.B.C. Murders by Agatha Christie, this crime caper is rather fun once it has got going. It features a night scene of a coffin being loaded onto a BR Southern Region Mk.1 EMU, though the location of this cannot be identified. There are also several shots of passing expresses and a further ‘back-projected’ shot of a steam-hauled train. As all these scenes take place at night these shots are all very indistinct.

This dark scene shows a coffin being loaded into the brake compartment of a BR Mk.1 EMU. As yet it is not known where this was filmed but could signal ?L62 on the right give away the location’s identity?
