1.0 out of 5 stars Sets new lows in junk tape manufacture. 25 Jan 2007
Format:VHS Tape
This cheap and cheerful little thriller would have made a very nice addition to any collection of British B films and I'd give the movie itself 4 stars - it's a neatly written little thriller. But there's one incredibly big problem with this release - my cassette runs out of tape before the film comes to an end!!! ... something I've never encountered on any other videotape. Even the worst of the cheapskate manufacturers usually manage to splash out and pay for enough tape to capture the whole film. How on earth anyone could send something to market in such condition is beyond belief. I'll tolerate bad original copies, low quality transfers and rotten artwork if it means getting a little rarity for the collection but there's no excuse for this. A total waste of money. The real shame of it, of course, is that we now know this little collectible is out there but that nobody is making it available in a form that's worth buying.

1.0 out of 5 stars Along the Wrong Line. 4 Jan 2006
Format:VHS Tape
This film is the story of a robbery on,to quote the summary on the video sleeve,the Flying Scotsman as it races through the night towards London.The Flying Scotsman,in 1957 left Edinburgh at 10 a.m.and could only race through the night in the depth of winter which it was`nt as the lineside footage as promised on the "blurb$Q,showed the trees in full leaf.It was a pity that the promised film of the stations showed only one-Paddington;The departing train was pulled by a Western Region locomotive and at the end of the film it was shown running into-Paddington!The Flying Scotsman terminates at Kings Cross.All in all this film is a poor offering with a string of mistakes which is an insult to anyone who has any knowledge of railways.The plot wasn`t all that sensible either. `
