And now for something completely different! (Read that in the voice of John Cleese, please.)
YouTube served me up one of these the other day, and I watched it, thereby signaling YouTube to serve me up more of these, and honestly, I’m not going to complain because they’re kind of fun to watch and also on some of these you really have to admire the work that obviously goes in to the creation. The concept is simple: Make a model railroad layout in your backyard, stick a GoPro on your locomotive, and record the journey.
I file this under the category of “Things I wouldn’t mind having, but the amount of work involved is a major turnoff and I’d settle for just knowing someone who has one.” Landscaping is not my passion in any way; I don’t even like pulling weeds. I love bearing witness to nature–hence the photography–but shaping it? That’s for someone else.
Anyway, here’s someone’s really nice backyard train. Yes, it helps to be wearing overalls while watching.
