Mystery Junction, another train-based movie that takes us back to the golden age of steam

A black and white British film, Mystery Junction is a crime drama from 1951.

One of the things I like about films from that general era is you also get an insight into life from the time.

There are lots of movies that involve trains and that’s the case for this one as well. The golden age of steam.

It begins when a lady (Christine Silver) on a train journey recognises the man (Sydney Tafler) opposite her, who is a famous crime writer.

She asks him how he gets his inspiration for the novels that he writes and he begins to tell her.

Then they hear a scream and after going to investigate, find themselves at the heart of a drama.
