June 2016 - Chris Churcher advises that "Most of the racing scenes were filmed on the section around Nr2 range signal box and Woolmer yard which was double track and allowed fast running (south of Whitehill). 

The scene in the film where the trains and wickham trolly enter and leave the tunnel is and can only be north of Whitehill station where the line towards Oakhanger and Bordon passes under the main A325? road.
