Starring: Asa Butterfield and Cora Kirk

A young couple make a split-second decision to swap trains, unaware that they have just swapped Christmases

This┬áChristmas-themed romantic comedy follows a tired principal, and recieved largely poor reviews. It features quite a lot in the way of railways, but much of these scenes, too, also leave a lot to be desired. The couple start their journeys at London Marylebone, with Class 165 ‘Turbo’ DMU’s much in evidence, but what then follows is a bit of a mess as High Wycombe station plays the part of Macclesfield in Cheshire, and North Weald station on the Epping-Ongar Railway stands in for Kemble in Gloucestershire! There is an interesting sceneario at the latter, with a departing Chiltern Railways Class 168 DMU superimposed into the overall view of the station through the use of CGI.
