VIDEO: Swanage Railway

Nothing whatsoever to do with the NVR, but this weekend I paid a visit to the Swanage Railway in Dorset, one of my absolute favourite preserved lines.

Unusually for a British summer day the weather was hot, dry and sunny, ideal for a pretty steam railway that still carries lots of holidaymakers to the beautifully restored original seaside terminus at Swanage via Corfe Castle.

This video is an attempt to capture the atmosphere both of the day and the railway in general. Taken once again with my point-and-shoot (stills) camera, I am seriously considering upgrading to a proper video camera as I rather enjoy the film-making process and my current camera has many limitations!
