Thanks for the video.

Disappointing about the backscenes.

I've only put up one length of around 7ft but used wallpaper adhesive. That gave me a bit of wiggle time to get the join reasonably neat. It's not perfect but it hasn't bubbled or lifted.

In my dubious experience, double sided tape doesn't allow any adjustment so you'd need to be bang-on to get it right! Hope you get that sorted to your satisfaction.

Thanks, Dave

I'll do some experimentation.
With kind regards

I have used wallpaper paste to good effect in the past and would use it again if I was using paper based backscenes again.

I put up my backscene about 10 days ago and also used wallpaper paste which was applied with a small roller. There were two lengths, so about 16' in total. The backscene is stuck to plywood which has two 90 degree bends in the corners and appears to be staying put. (Where's that lump of wood?).

Laurence, that all seems to ge running really nicely.
Very smooth stops at the station and pretty realistic speeds.
You must be pleased.
What you didn't see, because I assembled the video from six individual parts, was that I had to give 9744 a little nudge before it would start from Platform 4.  Also, there were a few phantom runs, where I didn't quite get everything right and had to repeat them.  The pauses in pannning, where the locos 'got away', so to speak, were where I had to take my hand of the panning lever to operate the controls to stop the locos (via the deceleration setting).
With kind regards

Should your camera have the now quite usual anti-shake device installed, you may want to try a hand hold session to see how that comes out.

Hand hold can sometimes let you react a bit faster than if you need to pan and tilt while the camera is on a tripod.

Mind you, trying to do that and control a wayward loco simultaneously is probably a lot easier said than done!  :camera:

The problem is that I need both hands to operate the walkaround from the position where I am filming, so I just need more practice to improve the continuity.  Either that, or I need a wireless walkaround, which is quite an expensive option.

Clearly there’s a market for the model railway equivalent of a guitarist’s pedal board :headbang:

I didn’t get down to the Train Shed for a session this morning, but I did check the temperature, which had already fallen to 12C.  Later in the afternoon (after more rose pruning) I eventually returned for a running session.  By this time the temperature was below 10C and I switched on the heater for the short time I was there.  However, the temperature didn’t seem to affect the running in any way.

I managed to get another recording session ‘in the can’, this time sub-cycle 1b, which I was able to assemble in the same manner as yesterday’s video.  First, you will see 9744 emerge from the branch UP tunnel, bunker first, having run round its train at Norton.  Once it stops at Platform 4, Ivatt mogul 46443 appears exiting the DOWN tunnel with a local train from Worcester, eventually arriving at Platform 3.  Then 5041 ‘Tiverton Castle’ races out of the UP mainline tunnel and rushes through the station, non-stop on its mad dash towards Birmingham, via Worcester.

After Tiverton Castle has disappeared from sight, 46443 departs from Platform 4, heading for Aylesbury with its four suburban coaches.  Finally, 9744 gets the Right Away and heads off in the direction of Shipton, where it will eventually run round its train, ready for its next journey back to Norton again.

 


Hopefully, I am managing to improve my filming technique and, by the time the scenery is complete, I might be able to make a convincing full-length movie showing all the movements of the trains on the Aylesbury and Worcester through Marton Hinmarche.
With kind regards
Laurence

Just a thought about the backscene, Laurence. I used those plastic spines for holding A4 sheets of paper together to hold mine at the top. OK, I used blue ones but you can get all sorts of colours including clear ones and they are cheap as chips.....................



I reckon they give good protection to the tops of the backscene too.

Sorry to go off subject but this guy is a genius at work, look at all the pedals underneath he plays un-believable, he plays has he composes.

So the motto is filming and controlling the loc should be a doddle..........lol

I've been meaning to get some, but never quite got round to it.  I must get some.
