Have made a donation to Severn Valley Railway appeal from some of my ad revenue

My YouTube channel is getting about 700 views a day at the moment, but with no new videos to add that number will probably decrease over the coming weeks. Estimated revenue is £11.49 as I type this, but as I receive no payment until the revenue passes £60 it will be many months before it reaches my bank account. So today I made a small donation, as every little helps, as they say.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The above is from what “you” are helping to raise from viewing my videos.

I will make my own donation sometime – but the amount is just for me to know!

The most popular videos over the past 48 hours are:-

Will be interesting to see how that changes over coming weeks, as the top one will drop down the list soon and others will shuffle around as older videos suddenly become more popular, for whatever reason.

In the meantime, keep watching:-

Photos and Video, 50007 and 50049, Stourbridge 22/03/20

I didn’t know they were running to Reading in the morning, was actually out walking the dog as they passed by not very far away – didn’t hear them though. Fortunately they returned at a convenient time for me to see them. Running as 5Z50 Reading to Kidderminster Severn Valley Railway.

Old photos, 34053, 5164 and 50135, Arley 27/05/13

Thinking it would be easy working through old videos to add to the index, I have just come across a day when none of the photos were added to my gallery. They have now been added and can be seen below

Old Video Index, D8059, 2857 and 34053 Arley, 19/05/13 (also 5164 and 7812)

I’m trying to set up a basic format for posts when adding to the Old Video Index. I reckon the heading above should work, as it shows locos in the videos, the place, date and also other locos seen in photos. It should be more useful than the original blog post in 2013.

The post in this blog will just give the essentials, then if a reader isn’t interested they don’t waste time downloading images. The link will take you to the full details, or at least what I can remember. Time will tell how successful it is.

Link to page in Video Index

Sorry about all the messing about earlier with a link that didn’t show properly, I understand why now!

Trying to index my first videos from 2013, should be amusing!!

My first videos weren’t brilliant, but as us oldies aren’t supposed to go out and about at the moment I’ve decided to try to make some sort of list of the older videos and to link to any photos from that day. YouTube used to “search” much better than it does now and I can’t always find what I’m looking for – and with over 4,000 videos it’s a big task!!!

The videos from 2013 were filmed with an SLR camera, which wasn’t very easy. Don’t expect them to be “fantastic”, were your first videos good? Obviously lots of shots of locos now moved away, out of service etc. as in these photos at Arley. I’m looking forward to working my way through them – some good memories I’m sure. Anyway, the first is at Arley on 19/05/13, give it a try, you can play the videos and view the photos:-

Photos and Video, 1450, 7714 and 75069, Bridgnorth 14/03/20 part 1

At last, the chance to see some steam trains. As the Kidderminster end of the line has had no trains since December it has not been so easy to see any. Anyway, I had a drive to Bridgnorth to see the 3 locos in action and this is the first of the two videos.
