GB 2008 1hr 51mins Dir: Roger Donaldson Starring: Jason Statham and Saffron Burrows
A film based on the 1971 Baker Street robbery
This crime drama has a scene filmed on Platform 1 of London Paddington station with a train formed of EWS maroon-liveried Mk2 coaching stock. The loco used was preserved Class 52 ‘Western’ diesel-hydraulic D1015 Western Champion, a surprising choice, and it can be seen at the front end of the train in one shot. There are also some scenes filmed on the London Underground that featured 1972-built tube stock at Aldwych station, masquerading as both ‘Baker Street’ and ‘Tottenham Court Road’ stations, though the frontage of the real Baker Street station is also briefly glimpsed.
