Miniature Railway 1936

Star Item

Description

Beaulieu, Hampshire.

Shots of a steam engine starting off along the track. It looks real but as the shot widens we see that it is a scale model and is being driven by a young child sitting in the cab. The miniature railway was started by the brothers Holder in the 1890s.

Various shots...
