The Wombles of Wimbledon Common make contact with humans

This big-screen version of the classic children’s TV series The Wombles has a number of railway scenes as David Tomlinson goes to work. There are shots of passing Class 115 DMU’s on Chiltern Line services, and a scene with David Tomlinson at High Wycombe station with another Class 115 in the bay platform.
