  • Short Summary

    Unusual train which travels between Headcorn in Kent and Robertsbridge in West Sussex.

  • Description

    A motor-train which runs between Headcorn in Kent and Robertsbridge in West Sussex is featured.

    A man starts the engine of the motor-train with a starting handle at the front (it almost looks like an ordinary car from this angle). He gets into the driver's seat. We then see the train running along railway tracks. Shot from inside the train - we can see the driver and the view from the front windows.

    Moving shot of the train on the tracks. The train is nicknamed "Lizzie". The train goes through a tunnel and across a level crossing. We see it travel through the countryside and arrive at a station - presumably Robertsbridge (only short shot of station).

    Probably originally a Pathe Pictorial item - not Eve's Film Review.
