    Can you identify this from the little I remember?



    Travellers in a train carriage notice that they are slowing down. On checking, they find that their carriage has been disconnected from the engine - and they slowly roll to a stop.



    They are near a village - and they walk in for assistance. The residents, however, are very eccentric.



    I was about ten when I saw this at the cinema with my mother, and I felt then it was frightening. I may be wrong, but I think the travellers were British and the village was French.



    That's it. Any ideas?

    We've had this before and the nearest is Mystery Junction or Dr Terror's.

    It could by "Mystery Junction", I suppose - though the IMDb doesn't give much away.



    It wouldn't be anything called "Dr Terror's". Even my mother wouldn't have taken a ten year old to see a film with a title like that.



    In any case, the date was the late Fifties. "Mystery Junction" was 1951, I see. But our local flea-pit (Feltham Playhouse) was independent, so it might have been showing eight-year old Merton Park B pictures.

    I've just read the "Mystery Junction" description on this site - and that's not the movie.



    Perhaps I'll ask again in 2009.

    Your best bet is the British Film Catalogue by Denis Gifford - covers ever British film of the 50's and more with a description of plot

    The Gamma People made in 1955?



    Check out the user comments on imdb. It sounds similar to what you remember Dave B

    No, it wasn't "The Gamma People" - though that seems like an interesting movie.



    The only other detail I can remember is that one of the stranded train passengers was a precocious schoolboy - rather like Ronnie Raymond in "Murder She Said". But it wasn't Ronnie Raymond, because he would've been too young when this film was made.
