A wealthy architect battles with his love-hate marriage whilst seeking an affair

This drama is based on Edna O’Brien’s 1971 novel of the same name and features a scene at London Paddington station with a filthy BR green Class 47 No.1934 at the buffer stops together with a Class 117 DMU. Blue and grey Mk1 and Mk2 coaching stock can also be seen, one of which is Mk.2B Corridor First No.13487.

Michael Caine rushes through the crowds at London Paddington
A bit blurry perhaps, but we have Michael Caine in the foreground, with a Class 47 behind, and then a BR-blue liveried Class 117 DMU beyond that
The 47 is revealed to be No.1934, in appalling external condition. As 47256, this would go on to be the very last BR-green liveried member of the class, not receiving a repaint into standard BR blue until October 1978.
