7 hours of Great North Steam Fair scenes crammed into 7 minutes of timelapse video. To complete the '7' theme it took around 7 days to process around 16,000 images from the event and edit them together with our Edwardian era steam powered computers. ;-) And apologies for the sensor dirt visible, we're hoping to have our cameras serviced shortly!
00:00 - Scene 1: Colliery Railway with Coffee Pot No.1 and Captain Baxter shunting. Narrow Gauge railway and various steam road vehicles in the colliery yard. Camera set up at the top of the winder house.
01:35 - Scene 2: Beamish Town Street with various trams (including visiting Manchester 765 from Heaton Park), vintage cycles, veteran motor vehicles and numerous steam road vehicles.
03:19 - Scene 3: Rowley Station with visiting LNER Y7 (North Norfolk Railway) on passenger duties.
