Star Item
  • Description

    Soundtrack is currently missing for this item.

    York, North Yorkshire.

    M/Ss of some official-looking men walking along a railway line and looking at a GNR Class 1 steam engine, "Henry Oakley". The men climb aboard, pose for pictures then drive off in the train. C/Us of features of the train show the names 'Henry' and 'Oakley' over the wheels. As the train starts to move off another man runs over the tracks and climbs onto the train.

    Old database record states 'New railway exhibition for York Museum', so this is presumably one of the first exhibits.

    Note: this may belong to a different issue - may be incorrect canister number.
