Layout Tour–TJ’s Turtle Creek Railroad

Some time back I was introduced to live video broadcasting on the Web via a service called LiveStream. I saw how others were creating tours of their layouts and broadcasting them and how the broadcasts could be recorded. Using the free-with-Windows software program Windows Movie Maker I played around with creating a video (without the luxury of a video camera) to show my own backyard Garden Railroad.

Using still photos, music, and the various special effects available in Windows Movie Maker, I crafted a short video showing several of the features of my backyard layout, the Turtle Creek Railroad.

Having actual video would make this process a good deal easier and I hope to have better efforts to show as I now have a small Webbie video cam. I’m planning to redo my entire layout (who isn’t?) and hope to record the process in video.

Let me know what you think! –TJ

    Not bad for all still pictures. The effects make it look like an old newsreel.
