Dir: John Gilling
Starring: Charles Victor and Avice Landone

A quiet, respectable bank cashier learns he has only a few years left to live, and decides to embezzle money from the bank where he works

This short but rather good crime film features several shots of the frontage to St Margarets station. There are also scenes filmed at London Victoria station with Charles Victor boarding a train formed of two 6 PUL / 6PAN EMU sets working an ‘Eastbourne’ service, as denoted by the carriage destination boards. In the background of other shots, a 4 COR unit is present as is an unidentified steam locomotive, standing at the buffer stops but largely obscured by the passing crowds. Victor’s journey to Eastbourne is depicted with a good, but erroneous shot, of a 4 SUB EMU at Barnes Bridge on an anti-clockwise Hounslow loop service. The carriage interior scene appears too convincing to be a set.

This is St. Margaret’s Road, Twickenham, at the junction with Crown Street. St. Margaret’s station is visible in the background.
The station is more visible in this shot taken closer to the entrance of the corner building which Charles Victor is entering.
This entrance to Victoria station is now partially blocked and the Public Bar is an information point
The steam loco is clearly visible beyond the ticket barrier in this shot, but the exact identity is not currently known
A classic view of the concourse at London Victoria which was effectively two stations in one
Charles Victor runs to catch his train on the left, formed of a 6 PAN or PUL EMU. A 4 COR is in the background on the right.
This is a stock shot of a 4 SUB unit coming off Barnes Bridge across the Thames. Headcode 87 is Waterloo-Waterloo via Richmond, Hounslow and Brentford (anti clockwise around the Hounslow loop)
