Members of 18-Plus groups charter train to Dawlish for their Easter holiday.
No titles. 18-Plus Groups charter train to Dawlish.
Clapham Junction, London.
Various shots of crowds of people standing on a platform at Clapham Junction railway station. Commentator explains they are all members of 18 Plus groups in London and the Home Counties and have chartered a train to take them to Dawlish for their Easter holiday.
Several shots of people wearing silly hats and glasses and looking as if to say 'Aren't I mad and crazy and fun to be with?' (no). The train pulls in and they all pile onto the train, including members of a traditional jazz band. M/S of guard waving flag as train starts off.
Interior views of the people on the train. A banner is tied across the inside of one carriage reading 'Walthamstow 18-Plus'. Several shots in a special carriage given over to the band and dancers. Trad jazz musicians playing their instruments. People attempting to dance - looks pretty dire!
Good contrast to the hip youths of the late 60s - this is what the squares were up to in 1969!
