Various shots in a Skegness factory show carriages for a new monorail being made from fibreglass and wood. Men are seen painting carriages and screwing headlights into position.
Several good shots at Butlin's Holiday Camp in Skegness of campers getting into the finished monorail carriages ('Butlins Monorail' is written in small letters on the front of the car) and going for a ride around the camp grounds. A large man in tight shorts and top tries to squeeze into one of the carriages (looks like a Butlins comedian). Great shots of the holiday camp in this sequence, some taken from the monorail; chalets, the boating lake, the roller-skating rink and swimming pools. Two women and a man get into a vintage car and drive alongside the monorail as a contrast between old and modern transport.
