An advertising film for Richard Garrett & Sons electric trolley buses.

The opening caption, iin Spanish, says," Richard Garrett & Sons Ltd, the famous British manufacturers of electric and steam vehicles, present their latest 55 hp 35-seater and 65 hp 60-seater electric trolley buses". Various sequences show single and double decker trolley buses about the streets of Doncaster, undertaking manoeuvres to show their manoeuvrability, ease of handling and safety. A single deck trolley bus turns around sharp bends and steers around some road works and performs a U-turn. Passengers board and alight from the trolley bus. A double decker trolley bus is filmed going over some rails and reversing around a sharp corner. Both are filmed running on the same track.
