WW&F YouTube Channel
« on: July 19, 2017, 12:18:02 AM »
Today I set up the WW&F with a YouTube Channel.  There are lots of WW&F videos on YouTube now, and I'm hoping we can reference them all in one place.  I know that Eric Schade has a largish number of them, as do others. 

If anyone's familiar with how YouTube channels work, I'd love to hear from you.  Even better would be if someone would search for and organize the videos.  I'll be happy to hand out the password.

It looks like YouTube automatically generated one:
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCr6t09ETsHmyq6zTeWSao1g/about

We should probably "claim" this one and build upon it.

I took on the challenge and built up the official WW&F YouTube page:
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCw1sLZdj1sNSEZ49axjknMQ

Please check it out, "subscribe", etc. Thanks to James & Steve P. for getting the ball rolling.

Anyone who has a WW&F video that I missed (and I'm sure I didn't find them all), please let me know.

If you post a new WW&F video that you would like me to include in our playlists, please let me know.

Any suggestions are welcome. Help keeping this up-to-date would be extremely appreciated.

Thanks,

-Ed

Ed, what happens when you subscribe to our channel?  Do you get notifications, or do you  have to go looking for it?  Or what else special happens?

Thanks

Actually, I have no idea. I do know that it helps it appear higher in the ranking of searches, etc. - just like other social media platforms.
We now have 21 subscribers.

I just added a few more videos. I took the liberty of considering any Edaville footage prior to 1980 to be "historic". In fact, one clip from the 1960s may show the interior of WW&F coach 3.
