Work in Progress

A Newsreel-style educational film, made available for free in the 1950s to anyone who wanted to screen them in an effort to educate the public about transport-related topics.

At Woodhead, a pair of century-old tunnels are replaced by a new one. Farther north, Argyllshire is the scene of an experiment in co-ordinated road haulage service whilst, at Whitemoor in Cambridgeshire, marshalling of goods wagons is being speeded up by radio.

(British Transport Films, 1951)
