Default The 7.39?

Anyone know which was the 'home' station?

Looked to me to be a Southern operated stations. The South West trains may or may not be a red herring!!

I'm pretty sure that it's an SWT station. I thought it was Woking initially, but that may well be wrong.

I thought Woking initially as well, it does look like Woking's canopy, plus the building behind is familiar. I think it is Woking!

I was going for Woking as well.
The "town centre" scenes look like Guildford though- can anyone else confirm?

It is Woking. They spent a good few weeks earlier last year on and around the station.

Do you think it would have been filmed on a 'charter' train with extras rather than in the genuine rush hour?

The 444 has it's buffet open in a later scene, talk about a massive inaccuracy!

It most definitely was. A lot done on Sunday mornings I think.

Default BBC - Filming the 7:39

Just watching a drama on the BBC iPlayer about some romance that develops with 2 commuters on the '7:39' train service to Waterloo (Not sure where they board the train!).

Anyway does anyone know how they filmed it? As I imagine they can't stick a camera crew and actors on a random train! (Presumably they filmed a lot of the train scenes in one go!)

I've not seen the show, nor do I want to, but I will hazard a guess that most scenes would have been taken in a static location with the views out the window composited in later.

Rather than hazard a guess -I would suggest you watch the show and then form an opinion.
The scenes through the windows seemed real to me (not composited later) and I identified most locations were on the 4 track line between Woking and Waterloo. There were some quick glimpses of some double track railway but would have to see "still photos" to confirm this.

Most of the train shots were filmed on a static 444 in platform 6 at Woking last spring.
