Chaps,


I had the In-laws over for 3 days (from Shepparton - a country town 2 hours north of Melbourne) during the Christmas Break. All of Boxing Day we ran trains in the yard, drank and ate lovely things! -  a great day....what its all about!  I ran live steam, as well as about 30 different trains over some 10 hours.


My Brother in Law is an ameture film maker/actor, and had some fun filming my trains that day. He used his more handy-cam unit to take the shots.


He placed the films on Youtube here:

I like the 3rd one down.


Each is about 3 mins long.


I'm going to see if he can make me a DVD in higher res.


Enjoy,


David.


PS you'll see all of the Masterclass models running here n there in those 4 films.

The film presentation is as impressive as the layout and the engines running about.  Interesting selection of music.  What an enjoyable time of the year with the weather and the holidays!

Chaps, just a normal run is all it was. It was a nice day, and the In-laws (retired Farmers) were chatting over tea, so I thought I'd run some trains and give them something to look at! We ended u just running and running! The live steamer put goop all over the track, so the electrics later on had trouble on the oily 4% grades!The Bro in law got quite carried away. I have no sound card on my machine, so I know not what music or sound is on the Videos..just as well he hasn't voiced over awful things! (John King who crerated these films is a very creative fellow. His short films are most entertaining).

If I put my own music over it, itd probably be Pink Floyd or something!

Thanks chaps,
David.

I seem to be having some trouble posting?!?!? Anyway, Dave, it's great to see all your wonderful efforts in action. They create a magic all their own. I especially like seeing so many early era locos running. Wonderful work beautifully captured. Kudos to the in-law! I sure wish I could have been there to see it all.

Chris

Very impressive David, It was nice to see the sparkies running with the live steam. I just wish we had that weather around the holidays but it's what you get for being on the other side of the world.

Are you track power for the electric?

Looking foward to the next videos from your brother in law
