Storyline

Big Train steams out of the comedy tunnel in a cavalcade of daft sketches performed by high-quality actors in a series of stunning costumes and vast sets. Along the way we encounter a reluctant policeman, pop stars chasing jockeys, hens in armed combat, a confused transport minister, highly charged sexual politics and casual, though necessary, violence. Many of the cast, including Simon Pegg, have gone on to become some of Britain's best loved comedy actors.
