GB 2019 1hr 56mins Dir: Danny Boyle Starring: Himesh Patel and Lily James
During a global blackout, a struggling musician is transported to an alternate reality where the Beatles never existed
This romantic comedy has some interesting railway scenes. Quite a bit of the action takes place in a recording studio that utilises a room in the former station building at Buckenham in Norfolk. During these scenes ‘Sprinter’ DMU’s of both Class 153 and 156 pass through and in one shot a pair of Direct Rail Services (DRS) Class 37 diesels thunder past outside the window. One of the pair is in DRS blue whilst the other is in the older BR large logo blue. There is also a sequence filmed at Liverpool Lime Street station and though we get good glimpses of the station entrance and the concourse, the only train that appears to be visible is a Class 390 ‘Pendolino’ EMU. In addition to this there are a couple of brief shots of the interior of a Jubilee Line train of 1996 tube stock during the blackout sequence.
