United States of America.
Brief shots of a steam train thundering over a track are intercut with various shots of actors and technicians making a radio broadcast about a train crash in a play. The sound men generate the noise of the train zooming along, and coal being shovelled into the boiler. The scene comes to a dramatic climax as one of the actors screams that something is red hot (sound quality is rather poor) and the train crashes - the sound men throw things on the floor and the sound of the train comes to a finish.
