I quote: The testing section at the end is almost certainly the Vickers gun range at Eskmeals, but the question was asked, is the manufacturing part of the film Sheffield or Barrow? In my view it's almost certainly Vickers Sons & Maxim's River Don Works at Sheffield. They did have Hudswell Clarke locos of standard and 2ft gauge, although I can't vouch for the wee Barclay seen near the end.
The usual observations about health and safety apply, that scene where the chap is breaking the crust on the slag pot is terrifying.
Other sources say its Vickers @ Barrow.
