Great vids Gav, and nicely timed with my tea break. Nice bit of Nessun Dorma too - I usually put on classical or opera when I'm running trains, seems to work quite well.

Love the shot in the 2nd vid with the train running along the top of the cliff with the camera set in the valley below,

There is no room inside a box.

Thanks guys you really are all too kind and thanks ever so much for not misconstruing the ending of Video 1, yes I know I always normally have a Mariah picture but this just seemed fitting and I appreciate your understanding why I did it.......

Goddamit Tim, I really thought I had you all this time with the music.......I would have got away with it as well if it hadn't been for those pesky kids! Only kidding mate, good spot there!

you're all too kind lads....mucho appreciado....(that's very made up Spanglish!)
