  • Description

    Three brief stories; Streamlined Model Train, Big Wheel and Paddlers.

    (Streamlined Model Train.)
    In a suburban area of California, United States of America, we see children getting on a model train called 'The Silver Star'. Commentator says it was built entirely from junk. The passengers lean out and wave as the train goes by.

    (Big Wheel.)
    In Vienna, Austria, we see the famous Ferris Wheel being repaired and serviced by workmen. The men walk across the girders of the wheel at tremendous heights.

    (Paddlers.)
    In the Soviet Union we see young boys using a special kind of float to help them as they learn to swim. The boys are first seen on a boat on the water; they take off their sailor suits and dive into the water, then swim along, holding onto the round floats with a paddle on either end.
