An out-of-work actor finds success as a star of TV commercials

This drama features a scene at London St Pancras station with a split-headcode Class 45 and a Class 27 at the buffer stops. The 27 is a very rare beast but look closely and some Class 127 DMU vehicles are visible among the coaching stock. Some distant shots overlooking the approaches to London Paddington in the Ranelagh Bridge/Royal Oak area appear later on in the film and an ex-GWR 2-6-2T and a Class 52 ‘Western’ diesel-hydraulic are visible among the various items of rolling stock. An earlier railway scene was filmed at night on the platform of an unknown station, with Kenneth More boarding a train formed of Mk1 coaching stock.

This first railway scene in the film shows Kenneth More boarding a train at an unknown station (reelstreets)
In this elevated view of London St Pancras a Class 45 stands in the centre whilst on the left of the shot is a Class 27. The latter is rare on film and even rarer in London, for they were all transferred north of the border in 1969. Class 127 DMU vehicles can also be discerned in this shot. (reelstreets)
The camera pans over the Great Western main line tracks out of London Paddington station. The canopy in the centre background belongs to Platform 1A, the extension built to platform 1 to handle milk and parcels traffic. In the centre of the picture is a Class 52 diesel-hydraulic. (reelstreets)
