The train robbery scenes were filmed at Theddingworth on the Rugby - Market Harborough - Peterborough line. This route had been closed in June 1966 and the tops of the rails were already rusty, so the film crew had to clean and polish them using mops and brushes at the start of filming to make it look as if the rails were still in use.
