This is a short timelapse video showing the drivers view of the railway line from Mitcham to Crafers in Adelaide, South Australia. This route covers the climb out from the Adelaide plains to the highest point (~600m) of it's journey as it crosses the Adelaide Hills.
It is sped up 15 times faster than normal to fit it into 3 minutes (approx). It was shot not from a train, but from the front seat of a Hy-Rail 4WD Car as part of a cellular mobile coverage survey I undertook for my employer (Telstra) in 2007. Thanks to Paul Hunt from ARTC for helping arrange the trip and driving the vehicle.
It was filmed with a Panasonic GS500 PAL SD video camera in 16x9 format and edited with Adobe Premiere CS3.
