Historical York, industrial York and the surrounding countryside form the background to this film; but the main setting is York station. We spend there the hours from dawn to dark on an autumn day. Our guide is the Station Master, who shows us something of the planning, hard work and human interest behind the scenes at a key point in the British railway system. A particular feature of the film is the new signalbox at York, then one of the most up to date of its kind in the world.
