This film shows the last steam workings, in 1968-70, on the permanent way engineering trains of the London Transport Underground between Neasden and Croxley Tip near Watford. These trains used former Great Western Railway 57XX class 0-6-0PT locomotives.

The film opens with views of passengers and electric trains at Harrow-on-the-Hill station on the former Metropolitan Railway line from Baker Street to Watford and other places in North London. Then we see locomotive number L92 taking water and running round its train at Watford, en route between Neasden and Croxley Tip.

Next we see shunting activity at Croxley Tip where the locomotive leaves the loaded wagons and assembles a train of empty wagons for the return to Neasden.

Then we see a sequence, filmed from the footplate, the guards van and the trackside, of the trains between Watford and Neasden, passing various underground stations along the way.

This film is featured on the DVD "Britain in the Days of Steam"
