Train Pictures Model Train Series - Volume 3

In Volume three of Train Pictures’ exciting “Model Trains” series we take you to the United Kingdom and a model railway exhibition circuit with much to offer the rail enthusiast.

"UK Model Rail Diaries Volume 1" was shot in the UK during 2006 - 2007 by the author, Crispin Groves-Raines. The footage was initially taken for the purposes of modeling inspiration and to record a little of the ambience and atmosphere of these exhibitions. It was filmed using a Standard Definition 3CCD camcorder, capturing rich colour footage. The compiled footage faithfully recreates the live exhibition experience with loads of action… just as if you were there.

Upon returning to Australia the author felt that this footage should be made available for others to enjoy. Indeed many rail enthusiasts living in Australia may not have had the opportunity to visit the UK and see these superb model trains in operation. Several layouts on this DVD have been featured in the UK model railway press and may even be familiar to some people.

Bath Green Park is but one example featuring the double headed steam engine operations of the Somerset and Dorset Joint Railway. These are faithfully reproduced in miniature on this wonderful OO gauge layout. Bath Green Park is included here for your enjoyment, along with many other layouts including Oldshaw (BR 1980`s) and Strachan (BR Scotrail) both set in the days of the British Railways corporate Blue Livery.

This DVD title features the Taunton, Cheltenham and Cardiff model railway exhibitions filmed during 2006 - 2007.

Railfan and hobbyist alike will enjoy this detailed look at the wonderful world of model trains.
