Semi-scale BR: the first train of spring

Post by BertieB » Wed Apr 24, 2019 12:57 pm

Spring has sprung, the track's been cleaned, the first train let loose.
Shortly followed, inevitably, by mobile phone with camera...



Nothing new unfortunately – and it doesn't really make all those noises, of course.
Audio clips of real Pannier tanks ladled on in the edit.

Superb! I love the slow running on your railway, very realistic.

I struggled to spot the cat until I reached the end, then went back and by a process of deduction spotted the ears moving. S/he doesn't seem at all fazed by the comings and goings of the railway.

Very steady camera work from a phone. Some very nicely framed shots. I like the colouration - was that added in the edit?

Reassuring at the end to see I'm not the only one with classic derails from time to time.

Great to see a video of some slow running. The little outtake at the end was unexpected....Though I had to turn the sound of, the music got a little bit annoying. But I realise you didn't have any sound from your locos, so to make it a bit more watchable you put the music on... :thumbright:

Love to see more of your line.... :thumbright:

Thank you all for your kind remarks.

Regarding Rik's comment on 'steady camera work': 'The first rule of photography', it has been impatiently explained to me, is 'always use a [expletive deleted] tripod' which I now adhere to religiously. Probably even when I shouldn’t (it’s video and stuff moves). Bought a cheapo, light, plastic tripod for mobile phones, which I would be lost without. Recommended!

The colouration is a ‘vintage’ filter added in the edit (there are other options in iMovie, too).

Cheers.
