Title: Sentinel Diesel Hydraulic 0-4-0 Shunting Locomotive

The film begins with shots of welders and fitters working on sections of the train's chassis and bodywork. There are also views of the train's engine, after a worker opens the train's bonnet; and a view of the train driver's controls.

An exterior shot of the Dorman Long plant. The grass verges of the roads nearby are thick with snow. Following this, there is an overhead view of a railway siding or goods yard adjacent to the Dorman Long works. Railway goods wagons are parked on the sidings. Next, a travelling shot aboard a train, likely a 0-4-0 shunting locomotive, as it carries out some wagon shunting manoeuvres.
