The film begins with the Doxford Experimental Engine running for the last time at the South Tyneside Marine College before being turned off.

8mm footage shows the arrival of the engine at the college on 1966 and it being installed by staff and cadets of the college. Back in 2006 engineers work to dismantle the engine and a large crane is brought in to move some of the larger sections loading them onto a flat-bed lorry.

Title: 3rd April 2007

The film ends with views of the empty test bed after the dismantling intercut with footage from the amateur film of the empty test bed before installations.
