The couple board a Hastings line narrow bodied DEMU (diesel electric multiple unit) train at Etchingham bound for London Charing Cross; have sex on a 4-COR EMU which operated between London Waterloo and Portsmouth, and arrive at London Paddington. They say they came from Oakham (in Rutland) so would have come into London St Pancras or London King's Cross. See more »

An absolute gem! This is possibly Walker's finest film, although it is a bit unfair to compare it to his 'terror' pictures. England, particularly, London 1970 and things are changing and this little film captures something of the very essence. Janet Lynn is fantastic as the wide eyed innocent who is more than happy to shed her clothes and have some fun. 'I don't mind people looking at my body. I quite like it actually.' This she says as she changes her dress and gets rid of her bra, in a railway compartment. Robin Askwith is also very good as the young guy who pretends to have all the connections but in reality is nowhere near as resourceful as the delightful Lynn. There are sleazy sessions with elderly men in high positions ready to take her on for a fiver when the young couple find their finances dwindle. Plenty of location shooting, some marvellous cinematography, humour and flesh and an insightful glimpse of London's underbelly c1970.
