All you need to complete the model is a couple of railway enthusiasts at the top of the hill watching the trains go by :)

Excellent video's mate, the overhead shots give the impression that they where made from a helicopter.

Well since you asked, my favourite has to be the Tri-ang R357 A-1-A Brush Type 2 (Class 31) diesel followed by the Airfix Class 31.
