A British Nazi sympathizer travels to Halifax, Canada, and is trailed by spies from both sides

This wartime drama features a railway scene where a train is caught in the middle of a bombing raid. This is mainly studio material and sets, but it does include shots of three passing night expresses. Sadly, the trains themselves are largely indiscernible, though two of them are Southern in origin. The film was edited down to 84 minutes for its release in the US.

Given the fact there is a war on this is likely to be a set but it goes to show how extensive some of these could be
The 3rd Class coaches look authentic enough, even down to the SMOKING signs on the windows and the framed pictures inside the compartment
Passing night train No.1. Although this darkened image appears in The Rake’s Progress (1945), it also appeared in Theatre Royal (1943) in daylight thus revealing the identity of the locomotive to be SR ‘Lord Nelson’ Class 4-6-0 No.854 Howard of Effingham.
Passing night train No.2. It may be hauled by an SR 2-6-0 as the smoke deflectors and the shape of the cab spectacle suggest.
Passing night train No.3. I have no idea what this could be though.
