Plasticine animation of Wallace and Gromit, inventors of all manner of useful devices. Gromit (a dog) finds himself being pushed out of his room and home by a new lodger who is actually a ruthless criminal (and a small penguin). The penguin is planning a robbery and needs to use Wallace and his mechanical remote controlled trousers to pull off the raid. However, Gromit is wise to the penguin and comes to the rescue.

During the train chase Gromit and Wallace cross McGraw's way Gromit puts a segment over the existing track. It's clear when the carriages between Gromit and Wallace pass that the new track is on top of the old one rather than a cross-track piece. After Wallace snatches the locomotive, McGraw left on a little platform on 4 wheels goes smoothly over the new crossing rather than "tripping" over the crossing rails on top of his track. Even after McGraw makes a turn and reveals the crossing behind for 2 frames you can see the new rails are still lying on top of his track. See more
