A beautiful young girl arrives in London to pursue a career in modelling, only to find herself caught up in the whole swinging 60’s scene

This drama opens with Francesca Annis boarding what looks like it might be a Class 205 DEMU at East Grinstead (Low Level) station. The sequence which then follows depicts a brief train journey with the onboard scenes apparently showing the interior of a 1st Class compartment of a BR-built Southern Region EMU, though the external shot shows an entirely different train altogether. There is then an aerial view of London Waterloo, with what looks to be an ex-SR Bulleid light pacific leaving on an express, yet the platform scenes which follow depict London Victoria and here, 6 PUL EMU set No.3002 and BR Southern Region Class 411 4 CEP EMU No.7177 are visible.

An ageing but still trustworthy porter carries Francesca Annis’ luggage to the waiting train. This is a shot of the main station building at East Grinstead (Low Level) station.
Francesca Annis is travelling First Class in what appears to be a Class 205 DEMU. The bridge at the top of the picture carried the High Level platforms until 1967, after which these low level platforms simply became East Grinstead. The bridge is more clearly seen in the 1961 Tony Hancock comedy The Rebel (qv).

This, however, could be anything, anywhere. The bridge looks new though.
This classic scene overlooking the throat at Waterloo is packed full of interest. The main attraction, possibly, is the steam-hauled service leaving in the hands of a Bulleid light pacific.
Despite the above shot of Waterloo, this is Victoria. I do not know what is more of interest here, Francesca Annis or the trains, but for what its worth, the main EMU in the centre of the shot is a relatively rare glimpse of a 6 PUL, in the form of unit No.3002. Just visible on the right is the front end of a 4 CEP.
The 4 CEP, almost certainly the same one in the above shot, is revealed to be No.7177
The taxi road outside London Victoria. What is notable here is the hoarding that is hiding the construction work for the forthcoming Victoria Line, the building of which was well underway at the time of filming. Note the Victoria Line sign.
