Two American paranormal investigators travel to North London to investigate a house plagued by a supernatural spirit

This American horror film was the sequel to 2013’s The Conjuring and the third installment in The Conjuring series. It is largely based on the famous Enfield hauntings of 1977 in which a family living in a Brimsdown council house where terrorized by a Poltergeist. It features scenes with Wilson and Farmiga at London Marylebone station. Firstly, there is a shot of them being picked up outside the station then later a scene filmed onboard a train of Mk.2 coaching stock. A good attempt has for once been made in trying to remove modern paraphernalia from the station, as the scene was supposedly set on British Rail in the 1970’s. The coaching stock was all in the corporate blue & grey and a dozen period cars and extras in period dress were used so as to get the feeling right for the movie.

The modern day scene filmed outside Marylebone, representing Christmas 1977
The later scene filmed onboard BR Mk.2’s at London Marylebone shows a bygone age. Note further Mk.2 stock in blue & grey visible through the windows on the left.
