Summary

It is 1951, and the train from Bristol to Paddington is preparing to leave. Albert, the driver, whose father and grandfather before him worked on the railway, says goodbye to his wife with mixed feelings - their seeming inability to have a child has overshadowed what was a happy marriage. Jenny, clumsy but loveable, longs to make a success of her job in the restaurant car, where she attracts the interest of Marvin, the steward. The passengers - some regulars on the line, others making a rare visit to London - settle down for the journey. But as they near their destination, disaster strikes . . .
