    Didn't see a thread containing such things so I'l be glad to break the ice.

    I revive this little-used, long-neglected thread to mention my own YT channel, which now houses a small number of TS2021 videos. I'll link my latest, published just this morning. In it, I drive a passenger train from Falmouth to Truro on TobBirk's new SteamWorkshop route Falmouth Branch Enhanced:

    This video holds the dubious honor of containing my first Copyright Claim. A groundless claim. Be that as it may, here it is:

    Not the greatest video but a quick one I made of Waterloo to Surbiton non-stop in the 1960s.

    Almost forgot to mention publishing another TS2021 video this weekend. This one see me drive a Caledonia Works GER T26 steam loco along Epping - Ongar thirdy-party route, from Ongar to Epping. The loco/train are, imo, a good fit for the short, slow track-speed passenger run. Were the loco any less powerful, or did it pull a few more coaches, it might have struggled up the line's inclines. Were it appreciably more powerful, it would be overkill:

    What video editing software did you use? I'm very new to all this and use the very basic video editor that comes with Windows 10. Intrigued by how you sped the video up.

    That loco looks and sounds incredible. What are the minimal requirements for the Epping-Ongar route?

    Vegas Movie Studio Platinum Suite- once a Sony product now developed by Magix. It's a pleasure to use* and a pretty comprehensive set of programs that punches well above its price tag of around £40. Movie Studio itelf won't speed up the footage (not that much anyway) but the suite includes a program specifically for speed ramping. The only software I used that isn't part of the suite is Audacity to fiddle with the sound and that's free.

    *Saying that it would be remiss of me not to note that the version of Movie Studio I have (16- 18 is current) has become quite unstable recently- possibly due to Windows updates. I'm still in the process of trying to sort this out.

    Yeah, the GER T26 a good one for sure. I hadn't driven it for quite some time until deciding I wanted to 'film' Epping-Ongar with an appropriately liveried steam loco. Had forgotten how nice it is to look at and drive. As for Epping-Ongar route, its requirements are:

    "- DTG North Somerset Line Add-on (Steam)
    - DTG London—Brighton Add-on (Steam)
    - DTG Isle Of Wight Add-on (Steam)
    - DTG AP Station Pack (Steam—included in Doncaster Works, Falmouth Branch, Portsmouth Direct Line, Northeast Corridor, Horseshoe Curve, Woodhead, Trains Vs Zombies 2, Western Lines of Scotland, WCML Over Shap, and Pietmaritzburg to Ladysmith.) YOU ONLY NEED AT LEAST ONE OF THESE!"

    Cheers - I don't have the North Somerset Line (being honest I'm not desperate to get it either).

    Another TS2021 upload from me. I show off Caledonia Works’ LNWR Greater Britain in Lavender & Cream livery, during a short, mostly uphill passenger run from Bernard Castle to Cockfield Fell, on Weardale & Teesdale Network Route. We spend much of our time watching the train from outside the cab, thanks to me finding the Greater Britain in Lavender & Cream enticingly ‘photogenic’.

    My latest TS2021 video, first of a two-episode train excursion, see us travel by rail from Westbourne-on-Sea to Havenbrook, on Western Branch Lines SteamWorkshop route by AirbourneAlex. Our train consists of a Caledonia Works’ GWR 3031 class Dean Single pulling GWR Concertina Coaches. (Outro music isn't ideal, a last minute substitute when my original outro music received an unwarranted Copyright Claim.)
