A train disaster is told as four short stories to give character studies of the people involved, how it will affect them, and how they deal with it.
Peter Finch and Laurence Payne received "and introducing" credits.
The producer (segment "The Actor"):
Funny - whenever I leave England I go all sentimental...
Philip Mason (segment "The Actor"): The country's had it as far as I'm concerned.
In the shot of the train approaching the wrecked tanker there's just two main lines but in the shot of the carriages piling up there's a spur line going to the right.
