  • Description

    Note: Location of the events are unknown.

    Full titles read: "ALL ABOARD THE 11.69 - Some may blame the Driver but Mother blames the extra pudding !"

    M/S's of a small boy playing with his train set. He eventually doses off and starts to dream about the real thing. A good C/U of the the wheels and pistons of a locomotive start to fade into the picture followed by several very good shots taken looking forward from a train moving at high speed. The train passes under railway bridges and the picturesque countryside. Several shots workmen running off the rail track as the train approaches. The film fades back to the boy dreaming and rolling over in his sleep. Good exterior shot of the steam locomotive. M/S of the boy suddenly waking up with a start.
