  • Short Summary

    A special train that can drive on roads - probably a converted truck!

  • Description

    London.

    Title: "The Trackless Train newly arrived from America ... makes sensation on first appearance in the streets".

    High angled shot, looking over the heads of a crowd, of a steam train pulling a carriage. The 'train' drives down a crowded high street, people wave from the back window of the carriage. L/S of the 'train' driving down a wide street, it overtakes a tram and several cars. The 'train' and carriage look like a converted truck and caravan.
