It is a puzzle why t.v. and films are so inaccurate on depiction of railway subject matter.3 further mistakes:
Much was made of the 'cad's' travelling 3rd class-the through Calais-Nice train de luxe only conveyed 1st & 2nd class carriages in the late 30s
Since these were sleepers and diners owned by "The International Sleeping Car Co."they should have of course been "Wagons-Lits" all blue[Viz "Le Train Blue"]and not the blue and cream pullman cars shown in the programme which were used on day time 'trains de luxe';
Idoubt if ticckets would have shown"Le Train Blue" since this was a nickname-the official title was Calais-Paris-Mediterranean[San Remo]Express.
