Driver Sparshott / Sparshatt in LNER's record run. Originally part of News in a Nutshell - news in brief from around the World.
Location of events unknown.
Various shots of steam engine, 'Papyrus'. C/U of engine driver (Mr. W. Sparshatt) and firemen (coal stoker) Webster. Mr. S. speaks to camera. Presumably driver and train have just broken some sort of speed record.
