The Rockford O Scalers have been wanting to try taking a track level video for quite some time and we finally got around to it a few weeks ago. The camera was mounted to a flat car and pushed around the layout by our Sunset 3rd Rail CGW 2-10-4.
We like the way this first attempt turned out but we think we can do better with a bit of practice. Our improvements for next time will be to have opposing trains running on the other track, angle the camera down a bit to get less of the ceiling in the view and eliminate those “giant people” that pop up occasionally!
Unfortunately, our video (4.5 minutes) file is too large to upload to the forum (122mb vs 100mb limit) but here is a link to it on You Tube. If you watch it, let us know what you think.
And feel free to post similar videos if you have them.
