The scenes for Weymouth docks were filmed on the quayside outside the "M Shed" on Bristol's harbor side. You can see that the railway trucks (obscuring the modern glassed frontage of the museum) have "Avonmouth Docks" written on some of them. These docks are at the mouth of the Avon about four miles down river from Bristol.
