Follows on from where the original series left off, except Trumpton is now ruled by Lord Trump, who arms the fire brigade, promotes Colonel Snort to Field-Marshall and converts the soldier boys to mechanized cavalry, rebuilds Windy Miller's mill as a watchtower with searchlights, and lines the sides of Lord Belborough's private railway with five metre high razor wire fences to keep illegal migrants from sneaking aboard ...
