• Short Summary

    A small scale railway carries passengers around the grounds of a large house.

  • 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 around the mini railway - there are several engines, engine sheds. lots of track etc. The carriages are big enough to carry adults.

    Shots of two men in a workshop doing repairs to the wheels of a train.

    Various shots of the trains on their 10 1/4 inch gauge tracks. We see a young Miss Mary Cook feeding coal to the boiler before she drives the train off along the tracks from the engine shed. Various nice shots from on board the train as it travels around the extensive grounds of the house.
