Recommendations for How To + Steam era Videos Please

Post by mindesig » Sat, 18 Mar 2006 21:34:23



Hi all

I am hoping to get some recommendations from folks for videos/DVDs on
anything to do with the following:

Weathering
Scratchbuilding - models and locos
Kitbashing
Scenery making
Super Detailing
Logging/Mining locos and their associated wagons, accessories, buildings
etc.

And footage of 1850 - 1950 steam era railroads with associated lineside
details etc.  Particular "road" is not important as I am only trying to gain
general data for modelling inspiration.

I have looked on eBay and there are quite a few advertised, but without
knowing their quality at all, it could add up to serious money to find out
whether they're duds or not.

Finally, my main interest would be for HO modelling, but I imagine all of
the above subjects would apply to any scale.

Thanks

Steve

There are several railroad films  -  mostly industry or specific railroad
promotional films, with many by the legendary Jam Handy outfit  -  in the
Prelinger archive.  The higher resolution versions can take a logn tiem if
you don't have high speed net access.
