Ffestiniog Railways "Moving Pictures" Series
« on: March 17, 2024, 06:33:55 PM »
I recently discovered a video series by the Ffestiniog Railway, called appropriately enough, "Moving Pictures".  The series covers a lot of different facets of the FfR, and they sometimes show scenes from other rail lines.

Right now the series is up to 89.

Here's the very first: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NMvLyEuaPR8 from 2017.
And the most recent: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8SVGBtpgyuw

For us Americans: when searching for the latest, the Brits dates are in Day/Month/Year format, instead of Month/Day/Year.  So 7/3/24 is March 7, 2024, not July 3rd!

I love these videos. They are always so well-produced, and so informative. I discovered them around episode "Forty-Five". I think my favorite episode is the special from 2018 which explains the Rhiw Goch signal box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t-fwSr7wHBw

A piece of advice: Some of the more frequently-appearing characters speak "at their own pace," to put it lightly. Sometimes I lose track of what was said at the beginning of a sentence by the time the end of it rolls around. I find the videos much more enjoyable when the playback is set to 1.25x speed (or even 1.5x speed, if it's a particularly slow day.)
