  • Short Summary

    Large and complex model railway in a Hertfordshire garden.

  • Description

    Filmed in a Hertfordshire garden.

    "Ask any real boy what he'd like for his birthday and it's ten to one the toy has wheels...and probably a railway line in its composition. Here's a fine model." High angle shot of a large model railway in a garden. Various shots of the model trains travelling through the landscaped garden.

    Intertitle observes that it is difficult to know who gets more enjoyment out of the model railway - the boy or his dad! Trains leave the model station and move along the tracks. Trains go in and out of tunnels. The layout of the track is very complex and realistic - there is even a model harbour with model boats. We then see the boy - wearing school uniform? Walking towards one of the trains.
