Shot on a Sony HC1 in 1080i at a show in Harrogate in Feb 2008 and edited in HD in Vegas 7, this shows a few clips from my new, totally re-shot, 2008 DVD of our multi-award winning exhibition layout, Thurston.
Thurston is the railway station 4.5 miles directly east of Bury St. Edmunds in Suffolk. It is a very picturesque village. The first train ran in November 1846. Today, the main (down) station building survives (although no longer in railway use) as does the Pub and Granary, the latter now much altered. The goods yard has all gone but passenger trains still stop at Thurston.
This model took half a dozen of us in Ely Model Railway Club more than 10 years to make and Thurston OO now appears in major shows all over the UK. Our 4mm scale working model shows how it would have been in the late 1950's-early 1960's.
The previous DVD I did of Thurston OO in 2006 was only in 4:3 but has sold well. However, it was no where near the "professionalism" of this new DVD, which is also be available in a HD format for PS3 playback. We sell it at shows where Thurston attends as well as at out Annual Exhibitions in Ely each May. As before, all proceeds go to support our model making. More details about Thurston and our other layouts, the Club and our Exhibition are on the Club's website - UPDATE MARCH 2012 - NOT the old website address shown in the film but now on our new website elymrc.org.uk
