Right here we go!
I borrowed a friends video camera this weekend (thanks Ian)
I haven't a clue wot I was doing!
It's hard work running trains and operating a camera at the same time.
So we now have some very rough video's of Slightly shed and a pair of sound Class 20,s running round the shed.
I apologise in advance for the shaky hand and fast running loco's.
The two video's are meant to run as one but I don't know how to put them together so here they are as two.

Track and trains look great.

Don't think I could put up with that high pitched squeal every time I ran trains, guaranteed migraine! Do they sound that loud and that screechy in real life or is it the video cameras microphone? Sorry if that sounds negative but ouch :roll:

normally the microphone makes it sound worst than it is really as it vibrates alot more.

While I have the camera I will film the whole layout.
Someone asked for the class 20's so thats wot I did first!
I have turned the volumne down on the Class 20,'s but when every thing else is running and I have a bit of music on I just love the sound they make.

Can't believe people are complaining about that turbo-whistle ... fantastic!

Couple of 40s alongside and that should clear away the dissenters!

Well done Andy, layout is looking fantastic. All that space ....

Hi Andy

Good stuff fella. I like my trains like my music and my women: loud, exciting and fun to play ;)

Noise Generators- the new rock 'n' roll 8)

Can't wait to hear a 'yard' scene (I'm assuming you can run quite a few of these blighters simultaneously ;) )

Cheers

Not a great fan of 40's as you know! But the sound generated would be awesome!

Being a DCC layout you are quite right that I could run quite a few loco's at once however I only have the 2 20's that are sound fitted at present.
Future plans will include lots of Sulzer clatter!

As promised while I have the camera here is an overall view with a couple of trains running.
Most of the noise is composed by the Peak hauling a cross country train of nine MK 1's.
Background music provided by ZZ Top (must be some track workers some were listening to the radio!)

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

Loved the sound of the 20's when they fired up, only thing missing was the "CLAG" being emitted from the exhaust.
