This was the last sequence for The Beatles’ debut movie A Hard Day’s Night filmed inside a train. The group boarded at Acton Main Line in west London, and travelled to Newton Abbot in Devon, before returning to London.
Although this was the last day of train filming, the film’s famous sequence of The Beatles performing I Should Have Known Better, supposedly shot in a railway carriage, was in fact filmed at Twickenham Film Studios on 11 March 1964.
