Update 896. Videos from first day of Severn Valley Railway Spring Steam Gala, 21/03/14

It has taken a long time, but all the videos can now be accessed from my gallery, in the same way that photos were displayed in the past. The visitors were 1450, 1638, 6435 & 7828. 4936 has stayed on since arriving last year and the home fleet were 1501, 2857, 4566 & 7812. Most of the videos were filmed at Highley, with a few at Arley, ending with a ride behind 7828 on the way back to Kidderminster.

Wasn’t sure what to show here, but decided on 1450 with the autotrain

Hope you are enjoying the videos?

I’m enjoying using the camcorder, it makes a change from just taking photos all the time. It is quite time consuming with all the uploading & editing to do, and my other plan to link all the videos to my galleries and the blog does get a bit fiddly at times. Hopefully I will get into more of a routine as the weeks go by. With a bit of luck I should be able to link the videos from day 1 of the SVR gala to the blog in the next day or so. I’d better get on with it as day 2 isn’t finished yet & I haven’t started on day 3.

Just been playing with my Samsung 7″ tablet to make sure the recent videos link from the blog and gallery, must say I’m very pleased with the quality – looks better than watching the originals on my desktop pc!
