    Every year in June, railway modelling enthusiasts gather in Adelaide, South Australia to display their efforts and run their trains at the annual Adelaide Model Railway Exhibition. The young and young at heart come from everywhere to witness these merticulous works of art in action. This short film has been produced as a bit of an experiment to try and create something which had the look and feel of the Silent Movie era. It has been as much about working with the post production capabilities of Adobe Premiere CS3, to take footage and turn it into something else, as it has been to present the essence of the event itself. I am looking to produce a modern colour verison of this in the future as well, but with a different take on the story telling. Comments and feedback are most welcome on how well you feel I have pulled off my attempt at a "Silent Film" era look for this film.

        A short but sweet film made as a training exercise (we think) with the local film school. More info at http://www.bekonscot.co.uk Bekonscot is the world's oldest true model village - having been started in 1929 in Beaconsfield, England. We're still here now, having probably more fun than we should whilst at work. It's a super place to come with the family - we're only a few miles outside London and near the M25 and M40 motorways. Come over, see our model trains, castles and towns - and have a nice cup of tea. Part of the Bekonscot Model Village Archive Collection. Please contact us on themodelvillage@yahoo.com for full details or if you have film footage that you'd like to share with us. We're a not-for-profit organisation with all monies raised being donated to local and national charities every year. If you were involved in the production of this video too and would like us to remove or credit it, please do just drop us a line - we've only put it up for education and historic purposes. Tally-ho!

          The story of the building of a model railway layout, based on the station at Wickham Bishops in Essex. The branch line ran from Witham to Maldon and was axed by Dr Beeching in 1964. Len Wilkinson's model is a delightful work of art, right down to the specially built rolling stock.

                  What a corker. This Bekonscot-in-one-minute video with a quite remarkable soundtrack was on repeat all day every day on a screen we had in the souvenir shop. Let's hope the queues were short. Bekonscot is the world's oldest true model village - having opened in 1929 in Beaconsfield, England. We're still here now, having probably more fun than we should whilst at work. It's a super place to come with the family - we're only a few miles outside London and near the M25 and M40 motorways.
