Filming: A Hard Day’s Night

8.00am, Tuesday 3 March 1964 (50 years ago)

The second day of filming for A Hard Day’s Night. The Beatles boarded a train at Acton Main Line railway station in west London, and headed for Minehead in the west country.

On board they filmed parts of the train sequences in the early part of the film. The moving train gave the filming a suitably cramped and claustrophobic atmosphere, conveying the pressures felt by The Beatles in the early part of 1964.
