An old-fashioned London gangster is aspiring to become a legitimate businessman but faces reprisals from competition

This gangster film features an establishing shot of London Paddington station with plenty of Mk2 coaching stock, a Class 47 and a Class 117 DMU present. A coffin is unloaded from Mk1 full-brake No.81432 at platform 8 and as the camera pans back, another Class 47 is visible at the helm.

This is a by now familiar shot of Paddington. In attendance on this occasion are BR Mk.2 coaches and a blue-liveried class 117 DMU.
But as the camera pans round a Class 47 draws out light engine
As the coffin is loaded from the train to the hearse another 47 is revealed
