At 1:13 a clean, rebuilt "Royal Scot" class 4-6-0, number 46126, backs onto and couples up with the carriages forming the express in the station. At 1:14:52 the train leaves the station headed by a scruffy "Jubilee" class 4-6-0. See more »
As a train crashes, the story of a number of its passengers is told in flashback. A ex German POW on the run, a conductor having an affair, an actor who's murdered his wife and the train driving seeking promotion.
This is very British film and often rather theatrical and over egged. Warner does his Huggett bit, the conductor and his wife take add the only humour such that it is, first timer Finch as the killer add the semi Hitchcockian thrills and the Dowling / Payne piece is deadly serious and frankly rather stilted and dull.
Some ok bits then, but despite some prestigious directors, the stories are not engrossing enough and so finding out who survives the crash and it's aftermath doesn't hold as much interest as it could have done.
