    Unissued / unused material.

    Colour item.

    American steam locomotive, United States of America (USA).

    Various shots steam train moving slowly up and down railway track surrounded by dusty ground, in background is a city.

    Amenmant August 2011:

    User noticed that this clip may have been filmed in Kenya rather than America. On the side of the locomotive are the initials EAR which would stand for "East African Railway." The train could be a "tribal" class but this cannot be verified.

    I think that this locomotive is not American, but South African. Note the initials on the tender - E A R (East Africal Railways). I could not read the inverted clapper-board to confirm.

    It's hard to read but I think that the clapperboard, visible at 0:48, gives the location as Uganda.
