Movie Day in the Garden

My recent attempt at filming the garden railway was some way short of successful, so today I had another try, with a little more success. While I had a freight train made up for filming, I staged a few cameos for the still camera.


A Great Eastern Railway J70 tram engine, which has somehow found its way
onto our garden railway. They were specially built for unfenced roadside and
dockside tramways, where cowcatchers, sideplates and a bell were required.


A Somerset & Dorset 7F 2-8-0 crawls up the 1 in 50 bank towards the viaduct
with a heavy mixed train of 26 wagons, assisted by a banking engine pushing
at the rear.

A Midland 3F 0-6-0 "Jinty" assists a heavy mixed train of 26 wagons up the
1 in 50 bank towards the viaduct.

And finally, the video is at http://youtu.be/RYP9urhtzdg.

Following complaints that the video included no passenger trains, an addendum was prepared the next day, and is at http://youtu.be/ONq-94SLFcg.

... and here are a couple of pictures.

Work-worn 9F 92203 assists 34067 "Tangmere" up the 1 in 50 with 12 coaches.

... and when I've had enough of the models, this is what's on the other side of the fence!
