The video begins with 850 Lord Nelson departing Ropley, heading for Alresford.  We then take a brief look at Ropley loco yard, where 925 Cheltenham and 34051 Sir Winston Churchill can be seen.

Moving location to Medstead and Four Marks we see 850 Lord Nelson with a service from Alton leave and then watch it depart for Ropley.  Finally, black 5 45379 is captured from the footbridge, climbing the summit from Ropley.
