Wait, isn't KC ... world famous and all that... the departure point for
the wilds of Scotland ... etc?

Which brings to mind the last movie remake of "The Thritynine Steps".
In which, IIRC, the train for Scotland departs from St Pancras instead
of the more accurate Kings Cross.

But the Thames-Clyde Express left from St Pancras.

IIRC part of the story is that the hero, Richard Hannay, leaves the
train whilst it is on the Forth Bridge. An AFIK, the Thames-Clyde
Express did not cross the Forth.

Thank you. I sit corrected.

Didn't the Waverley get quite close?

I've not seen the film(s), but the Forth Bridge doesn't feature in the
book, which is set in Galloway. However an advertising poster recently
on display at my local station would suggest LNER locos and the Forth
Bridge do appear in a recent stage version of it.

It has been a while since I last saw either (I think there are only 2)
version of the movie. The older black and white one, IIRC, did have
Hannay leaving the train on the bridge. I am not sure about the more
recent one.

The Kenneth More version (mid 50s) had the Forth bridge scene in, not sure
about the earlier version.

At least 3, 30s, don't know who played the lead, 50s with Kenneth More and 90s(?) with Robert Powell.
