THE BOYS stand and wave to the fans until out of sight line...

the girls running along to the end of the platform waving

and calling out.

INTERIOR RESERVED COMPARTMENT IN THE TRAIN

The boys relax, sitting down on one side of the compartment.

They are about to settle down and make themselves at home

when first RINGO nudges GEORGE who in turn nudges JOHN.

Opposite them is sitting the LITTLE OLD MAN. He is holding

himself stiff, erect and very aloof.

The three boys look at him enquiringly but with an elaborate

sniff he looks away from them and out of the window.

PAUL catches his eye and winks at the LITTLE OLD MAN. He

winks back at PAUL, scowls at the other three then looks

firmly out of the window again.

The boys turn on PAUL crowding around him.

JOHN:

Eh... pardon me for asking but who's

that little old man?

PAUL:

What little old man?

JOHN:

(pointing)

That little old man.

PAUL:

Oh, that one. That's me Grandfather.

GEORGE:

That's not your Grandfather.

PAUL:

It is, y'know.

GEORGE:

But your Grandfather lives in your

house. I've seen him.
