  1. Summer days and a platform ticket was entry into another world. Watching the trains come and go. Work has been going on this week with this corner of Trenholme Junction to make the blending of the real world with the model easier to do when filming. Tedious work making hedges from Reindeer Moss but the effort is worth the end result. I've always used this material because it's natural and looks life like even under the scrutiny of a 4k camera.
  2. The Upper North Station is the place for this weeks visit to Trenholme Junction. This junction is by far the most complicated on the entire layout, connecting the upper and lower levels, Upper North Station and the Upper Marshalling Yard together. The weather is a cold, crisp winters day with the breeze gently blowing the clouds across this 1960's scene with a backdrop of the Cleveland Hills in the near distance. Complicated video surgery, man.
  3. Continuing from last weeks diversions through the Main Station due to the derailment on the goods lines at the top end of Trenholme Junction, the cameras for this film are positioned south of the Diesel Shed. These views were intended to be part of last weeks' film, but illness pevented me from completing the job. The filming was completed, not edited, it seems a shame not to show it. The trains are obviously the same as last weeks (with some others). The goods trains weave their way across the junction and back onto the goods lines. The final scenes show the breakdown train leaving followed b
  4. Under clearing skies, an earlier derailment of vans is being attended to by the breakdown crane at the north end of the Main Station at Trenholme Junction. Both of the main goods lines, where trains pass by the station are blocked whilst the recovery operations take place. Luckily we have cameras in strategic points on the station and its approaches to watch as some goods trains are re-routed through the normally passenger only platforms.
  5. Its a miserable cloudy day and we are completley dieseled up with the Class 16 on Main Station Pilot duties. The 16 arrives from the South Junction after completing a turn at the Lower Marshalling Yard and pulls a rake of Thompson coaches from the North Carriage Sidings and places them into Platform 2 of the Main Staion. A class 31 departs from Platform 3 with a semi-fast stopping passenger train and heads to the South Junction. Class 24 D5100 arrives at the North Bay Platform with a train of suburban coaches and runs round its train. A dirty Warship couples up to the empty
  6. This week we move to the North Bay at Trenholme Junction where a Class 20 arrives to remove the empty parcels stock from the platform. The 08 is once again on pilot duties and takes the coaches from the centre road and places them into the platform road. A further diesel hauled parcels train leaves platform 2 and a standard class arrives at platform . Another standard class arrives to head up the train of coaches and finally the Black 5 held in the station avoiding loop leaves for destinations unknown. Sunny summer day train spotting.
  7. Following on from last week's film, this week we are following the 08 shunter on pilot duties at the Main Station on Trenholme Junction. The 08 first removes the two Royal Mail coaches from the North Carriage Sidings, across the station south junction and places itself on the relief road, ready to attach them to parcels coaches attached to the class 25 in the South Bay. A Class 47 storms through the station on the main platform road and off into the distance. Meanwhile, the Class 25 runs around its train. Then the 08 runs forward and attaches the Mail coaches to the rear. T
  8. We are back to the Main Station on Trenholme Junction where we take up four vantage points to watch the traffic moving in and out. The first scene is looking from the Inspection platform on the water tower next to the engine shed. The second scene is looking forward across the turntable towards the southern station throat. The next is from the south signal box and finally, looking across to the crossovers to the secondary station access.
  9. In response to the many requests I get for information about the production of the videos made on Trenholme Junction, here is the third of a series of videos explaining the details of how they are achieved. Removal of the background and replacing it using Bezier Masking techniques.

  12. In this weeks film we move our camera position to the north west of the Main Station looking south. Two of the trains are continuing their journeys' from last weeks film, the Standard class with its passenger train and the diesel with the bogie well wagons.
  13. In this film we are positioned in South Signal Box at the Main Station at Trenholme Junction. A simple pleasure, just watching some of the trains passing through the station. Regular viewers will notice the two trains which left (and passed) the Lower Marshalling Yard in last weeks film join the traffic and continue on their journeys'. Once again, this film demonstrates the widening of the horizons giving the illusion of the vast distances railways in the real world cover and further demonstrates variable backgrounds, skies and weather features can give a variety of views of wha
  14. In this film we are once again at the Lower Marshalling Yard and D7672 with a mixed goods arriving via the reception/despatch road and into the headshunt. After disposing of the brake van, the two vans at the rear of the train are then split to a separate siding and the remainder is shunted into another siding. The locomotive then takes an unfitted brake van from the brake van road and separates it before picking up a train of bogie well wagons from another siding and attaching the brake van to the train. Pauses. To the north of Trenholme Junction, in the far distance, another C
  15. Looking through the windows of the Lower North Signal Box on a miserable day.
