'Train of Events' movie poster, 1949

"Within the first minute and a half of the film the locomotive pulling the Euston to Liverpool express varies several times in cut shots from the largest 4-6-2 "Duchess" express locomotive to a variety of different, smaller 4-6-0 locomotives, variously with or without smoke deflectors, with single or double chimneys, with tapered or parallel boilers and with different numbers and tender insignias ("British Railways" or "LMS"). At one point a "Duchess" is seen again. Locomotive classes seen pulling the same train without it stopping thus include "Duchess", "Jubilee", "Patriot" and "Royal Scot"."
