Storyline

Captain Mainwaring gathers his troops for the secretive reading of top-secret orders, concerning the passage - no actual stop - of the royal train. The mood darkens when everybody else seems in on the secret. Alas, a regular train breaks down before the royal train, and a pills mix-up knocks out its staff. The platoon's ill-considered rescue attempt soon turns into a potential real disaster. Written by KGF Vissers
