Thank you Andrew

A very enjoyable trip out there with yourself and Lady June – and it didn’t
cost me a penny! Lovely bit of action from the Javelins and
Eurostars(surprised how little the fence was for that low shot compared to
all the palisade fencing springing up on the WCML and MML)and nice to get a
freight too – even if it was one that passed Wellingborough :-) P.S. Think
it might have been me who mentioned trying here ;-)

Thanks once again. This was particularly interesting as I know Rainham very
well. My sister lives about 200yards East of the station.

When she moved there in the 60’s there was a goods yard between her house
and the running lines. Stanier and BR 2-6-4Ts on the locals and a variety
of steam on the feight. Now you can’t see the line as there are blocks of
flats in the way!

The bridge you were filming from was built as the road, Ferry Lane, was
closed to traffic when the Eurostar line was built. There was a signal box
on the south side of the track on the east side of Ferry Lane.

Sorry, I have gone on a bit, thanks again.

You need 16:9 support from moviemaker to get 16:9 pics. Your video is
being forced into a 4:3 frame therefore if you want unspoiled pics you
should change the setting of the camera to 4:3 for pics. If your camera
doesn’t support 4:3 your stuck. I really don’t understand why you don’t
buy W7 for £40+ on ebay. You probably spend 10x that a week on travelling
and to be honest, your videos will shine with beautiful clarity.. your
viewers will enjoy the videos much more.. If your technophobic I will
provide a one time service of coming to your house with my PC and give you
1-1 instructions. That way, you can’t lose.
