There was one clip missing, likely lost in the Seagate hard drive failure, but it wasn’t all that brilliant to begin with. One evening in April/May 2008 I caught a glimpse of it doing a trial run to Whitby and back prior to the runs featured in this video which did survive.
On the 28th of August 2018 I made an impromptu follow-up visit to Grosmont with my Fuji F550EXR.
I wasn’t originally planning on going there, but I’d picked up a few items in town while I was down there for a “picnic” to sit outside somewhere to eat, and as all my usual spots to sit and eat in Whitby were packed with tourists I decided to pop down to Grosmont with it.
While there I took the opportunity to try grab some footage to create some content, and slightly over a year later, I’ve finally got round to editing and uploading it into a video.
It took me much longer than originally planned to edit it – 364 days 17hours 21minutes since I took the first still image of the trip through to when the finished video clip was done rendering and ready to upload, to be precise – but I finally did it.
On Thursday 2nd August 2018 I popped round to Grosmont in my car to have a quick play with my camera. I originally only planned to stay a short while once I got there at 1:47pm (that’s if the clock on my camera was right), but ended up staying until 3:20pm instead.
They’ve always been one of my favourite design of locomotives, ever since I was little.
Anyway, they’ve lived as individual clips on my personal YouTube channel since they were first recorded and uploaded, and the originals long since lost due to a Seagate Hard Drive failing on me 3 years ago.
Having obtained a new hard drive (then a year or two after that ending up needing a new computer), and having blagged a copy of Corel VideoStudio X5 through the Amazon Vine reviews program, back in April of this year I re-downloaded the files from my channel and sticky-taped them together into a single 7-minute video for this website’s YouTube Channel I created before the monetisation changes.
I extracted it from a much larger video I shot for my personal YouTube channel, walking along the “Permitted Footpath” along the Esk Valley Line between Ruswarp and Whitby.
I mostly shot that video to kill some time while my broadband connection was acting up and playing silly sods.
