Summary

This short newsreel features a Southern steam locomotive on the Dyke Railway as it begins its last journey. Snow falls at The Dyke station as the Station Master, Mr Charles James Weller, is seen coupling the carriage to the locomotive and passing the 'staff' to the train driver to authorise the train's journey on the single track line.
