Dir: Basil Dearden
Starring: John Clements and Googie Withers
The tale of various people who have come to live in an “ideal” city and their hopes and reasons for doing so
This supernatural fantasy drama is adapted from a J. B. Priestly play of the same name with many of the original actors taking roles in the film. Two of the characters find themselves transported to the city whilst on a train journey. There is a rail-level shot of GWR 6100 Class 2-6-2T No.6108 passing with a passenger train, and a very interesting shot of a double-headed parcels train entering a tunnel hauled by a GWR ‘Star’ Class 4-6-0 and a 2301 Class ‘Dean Goods’ 0-6-0. The continuity may all be wrong, but at least they are both GWR!
