    The service was inaugurated in May 1935. It ran between King's Cross in London, and Leeds.

    The carriage was called the "LNER Pathe Cinema Car".

    "Mr J H Thomas" was a trade union leader and later a Labour politician.

    Thanks for this. Any clips with an "LNER" in the description that doesn't relate to railways would have been produced for a carriage such as this.

    The 'unidentified man' is Sir Ralph Wedgwood, Chief Officer of the LNER. (Sir) Nigel Gresley - who would have been responsible for the conversion of the coach - is the tall moustachioed man behind and to the left of Sir Ralph.

    You will note Sir Nigel Gresley to the left in the group-this is how close we came to hearing his voice recorded.
    So close-what a shame!
