• Short Summary

    American train delivers military equipment in Russia?

  • Description

    Location Unknown / Unclear.

    Title reads 'US Military Railway Service to Russia'.

    A train at station. Large poster on train reads 'This train carries the (Censored) 000, 000 ton of war freight to be delivered to the Russians by the 3rd Military Railway Service Persian Gulf Command, United States Army'.

    US officer 'launches' the train - he breaks a bottle of champagne against it and the train moves. Troops around the train cheer.

    Various shots of the train travelling through mountainous terrain - tanks, artillery and armoured cars are seen on the train.

    Various shots of train arriving at station - crowd of military men and civilians at the station. Military delegation arriving. Two officers (one believe to be Russian, another American) address the crowd over microphones - presumably the train has arrived at its Russian destination. Several shots of the officers inspecting at the train.

    Note: Soundtrack only - no commentary.
