    There is a scene in the film where Chitty is being driven alongside a railway!

    Does anyone no where this scene was shot?

    It was Hampshire, where the B2131 Greatham to Liphook road ran alongside part of the Longmoor Military Railway. Both road and railway are now lost under the A3.

    Now I think about it I believe that they used a LMR 'Austerity' saddle tank plus LMR coaches! LMR = Longmoor Military Railway. There is a site somewhere devoted to it and its location, with 'then and now' photos.

    Longmoor was aso used for the Great St. Trinians Train robbery , Happiest days of our Lives, and a Marty Feldman sketch (one where he plays a golf shot on a sand bunker inside a tipper lorry and then on a rail truck)
