• Short Summary

    Great footage of a new streamlined and silver American train.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Streaming through! All over the world train experts are "going streamline"... and Uncle Sam's Railways are no exception. Here's his first attempt - ".

    Philadelphia, United States of America.

    Quick shots of a streamlined, silver train standing at a rural platform or 'stop' (doesn't look like an actual station). People stand around looking at it.

    Intertitle reads: "Pneumatic tyres - for noiseless running - compare favourably with the steel tyres of the steam locomotive."

    C/U of the tyres of the train. Shot of a steam train moving along is contrasted with the new train in motion. View of the people sitting inside. Point of view shot from the front of the train as we zoom along (looks speeded up).
