Description

This is the second half of a two-part film showing various modes of transport, some contemporary to the mid-1970s, others historic.

On the side of an old horse drawn carriage reads the title: 'Transport Part 2'. Cars are shown going over a canal lock at Crinan Canal, Scotland, with boats passing through the lock. This is followed by a parade of vintage cars, buses, and an old steam traction engine. An old lorry is for 'S. Harrison and Sons, Haulage Contractors, Sheffield' can also be seen. A large collection of vehicles is on display, possibly at Sheffield Show in Hillsborough Park. Some vehicles, including motorcycles and a man on a penny farthing, ride around in a circle.

The film then switches to show some steam trains, possibly on the Howarth line. One locomotive has a tender with USA on the side. The film then switches back to showing electric trams on the sea front at Blackpool, and finally to the vehicle parade at Blackpool Illuminations with which the first part of the film started.

The End title is again put on the side of a bus: 'The End, Good night, 1976'
