A sunny but a bit cold Wednesday morning in Central Station.
I'm an avid watcher of your video's on YouTube and this one is excellent.
Nice to see a variety of trains from the wonderful XC and EC HST's to the not so wonderful (putting it mildly) Pacers!
And a Metro which I had to sneak in
On a sunny day in October its good because if you stand at the south side like I did for some shots you can get photos with the sun shining on the trains.
Probably passed you a few times at Central when I've been down, although haven't been in a while now. Have to change that.
A very good video. Newcastle is an excellent place to go and photograph, albeit the fact that it is a major station the staff are always friendly and keen to welcome train spotters. You have to be a bit more cautious on the T&W but the novelty of taking photos of the same consists over and over again quickly wears off when you realise you could be up in the main station with the HSTs, 185s and Voyagers!!!
(no offence intended to the T&W Metro, I love it really! )
Officially I have stopped using my camcorder on the Metro to do long videos because it is far too dangerous. Its fine for doing the one shot like in my video posted above but not fine for going round the system all day and using it.
And yeah staff at Central Station are friendly. Always someone friendly in the station office on platform 1 that gives you a visitors badge.
What camera are you using, if you don't mind me asking?
No problem. Since May this year I have been using the Samsung SMX-F40. Got it off Tesco Outlet on ebay for £99. Its a seller refurbished model and it works perfect.
And since August the youtube versions of my vids are edited using AVS video editor. The DVD versions the ones I watch on my TV are converted into MPEG 2 files with the Standard TV format using Super converter and then edited using Pinnacle Studio 12.
