Titles read: 'Self help!'
Location of events unknown - somewhere in Britain.
Shots of a man shifting a huge steam engine on a railway turntable.
We then see a new method where the Flying Scotsman is driven onto a turntable and her vacuum pipe coupled to a small engine. The steam from the train works the turntable as it would normally work the brakes on her carriages. Great shots of the train turning round on the turntable then being driven off.
