The lives of carefree bachelor girls in swinging 60’s London

This drama opens with Francesca Annis boarding a train at East Grinstead (Low Level) station. The sequence which 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 scenes show a different train. There is then an aerial view of London Waterloo, with what looks to be an ex-SR ‘Lord Nelson’ Class 4-6-0 leaving on an express amongst all the EMUs, but 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.
