1970s Railway Video

Postby luckymucklebackit » Sat Jul 15, 2017 2:37 pm

Unfortunately no sound, this was transferred to digital from my old old Super 8 Cine film. Mostly Scottish Region, but some scenes from Carlisle, Manchester, Crewe and the Keighley and Worth Valley Line, ignore the odd non-railway stuff!

Thanks Jim - recognised most of the railway locations apart from the night scenes!

How did you get your stuff transferred to digital?

Hi Ex Pat - My sister knows someone in the business, no questions asked. He can only do a bit at a time, and there is another two reels to be done!

Pity! - I've got 40 to 50 VHS tapes from the 1990's, and have baulked at €15 or €20 each to transfer to DVD.

Getting the stuff off film is expensive, getting it transferred from VHS to DVD can be done using some basic software, I bought a kit some years ago for around £15.

LIDL's were doing one for £14.99. Silvercrest USB Video Grabber.

Bought one, haven't tried it. Loads of cables and bits in the box to bit any combination I should think.
