The life of an upper-class cad in the 1930s
Near the end of this classic comedy drama there are scenes filmed on a GWR branch line that include a very rare shot of St. Agnes station, on the Chacewater to Newquay line, followed by several good tracking shots of a GWR 2-6-2T on a local train. The scene depicting Margaret Johnston leaving on the departing train may have used the real thing. In addition to these scenes there is one much earlier shot of a passing express filmed day-for-night, and though the locomotive at the head can not be identified, it is Southern in origin.
