Abstract only
Log-in for full text

Railway stations provide the setting for meetings and departures. Trains roaring through contrast with the bleakness of an empty platform after farewells have been made. Several UK stations have drawn on Brief Encounter as a name for refreshment rooms. Carnforth Station, now described as ‘The Home of Brief Encounter’, has made a major tourist attraction out of its contact with the actual filming of the night scenes there. It replicates the film’s tea room, screens the film daily, and has a shop full of souvenir artefacts of the film.
