Track2 #229 Pt 2/3, Toy Train Expo, Williamsport, Pa

Sunday, March 10th, 2013

The “Toy Train Expo” is an annual community event held during a holiday weekend, in the historic Victorian Park Place building in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. Model trains of all sizes are set up and operated, the purpose being to allow the public to see a lot of different trains they would not other be able to see without driving a long distance. Unlike most train shows, there are NO sales tables. The entire exhibit is 95% percent operating displays, plus about 5% static displays. The proceeds from the admission donation, are donated to the Preservation Williamsport organization. ~~~ All footage in this web video (with the exception of about 20 seconds) was originally RECORDED by Bruce Huffman — and is excerpted with his permission, from his 2-hour DVD showing the 2001, 2003, 2005, 2006, and 2007 shows. ~~~~~~~~ LINKS: * Pt. 1/3: youtube.com – This shows scenes mainly from 2007 displays * Pt. 2/3: (this video) – This shows scenes from 2007, 2006, 2005, & 2003 displays. * Pt. 3/3: youtube.com – This shows scenes mainly from 2003 & 2001 displays.

Los Angeles Metro Expo Line – Phase II Tour, Part 1

Friday, May 25th, 2012

A speedy, time-lapse trip through the disputed rail right-of-way for Metro’s Expo line – currently being built from Downtown Los Angeles to Santa Monica. Starting about 6 blocks West of Robertson & Venice through West LA to the corner of Pico & Sawtelle! Yes, no kidding – this is West LA and it was shot on July 10 & 11, 2010. The homeowners around this part of the line (Cheviot Hills) are annoyed because a train is coming, so they decided to sue the city to stop it claiming it’s not “safe.” You be the judge – a massively wide right-of-way sitting unused and tunnels & bridges already in place from the last streetcar line we had here! Let’s hope these NIMBYs lose and the city wins. I made this film with a home brew steadycam, a Panasonic Lumix TZ-10 camera, Apple’s iMovie and a lot of walking. 😉 Please subscribe if you want to get notified of the next video update.
