Various travellers join a faltering performing troupe in a remake of the 1933 film

A great deal of material for this musical was shot in Wales, mainly on the Cambrian Coast and the Dowlais / Rhymney lines in the South Wales valleys. There is a semi-distant shot of an ex-GWR 5100-series 2-6-2T on a passenger train near Bargoed in the Rhymney Valley and a silhouetted shot of a train crossing the Barmouth Bridge. Not nearly as much railway material as the 1933 film, and not nearly as good either.
