[quote=Graham4405]Based on this statement and your replies above you want photos from exactly 20 years ago? So today we should post photos from 01/10/2000, tomorrow we should post photos from 02/10/20 ...

So first it will be January to September of the year 2000, then it will be like photos from ten years ago on a blog called Waking Up in Geelong.

Perhaps in another thread because they would be from the 1990s.

If you have been taking railfan photos for at least 20 years, how about posting photos from 20 years ago? If you have your own blog, you might want to consider posting them there.

Interesting to see more freight trams, could there even be some quadruplication of some sections of the network so that freight trams can pass stationary passenger trams?

Would anyone here like to share such photos, especially if taken in the pre-digital era? Scans need to be from the original negatives if taken on colour negative film, or from the original slides if t ...

Some provincial cities once had electric trams, all now have since closed with an exception for a section of track in Ballarat for a museum service and a single line in Bendigo used for a tram tour. A ...

Sales are so bad that Samsung and LG have both stopped production of new model Blu-ray hardware. They had 52% market share between them.

Blu-ray has been around for over a decade, is it more expensive than DVD was back in 2005?

I checked out the preview on Vimeo and it is fuzzy and blurry with some film specks. How about even remastering the old footage from the original negatives and re-releasing it on Blu-ray?

[quote=Carnot]A lot of American TV was shot on 30 fps film. Both 16 and 35mm. Hence when it's frame interpolated to 25 fps (50i in broadcast), it can look different. NTSC video likewise from 60i to 50 ...

I know trains generally operate under a signalled environment but I don't understand why track brakes are absent from trains. Without them, trains often can't stop within line of sight and track brake ...

Most motion picture film was pretty slow (ie. Typically ISO 50 - 200). ISO 50 is generally able to resolve to HD, ISO 200 quite grainy.

As said already by YMM, the same safety issues apply.

How fast can a railcar go before its braking distance is longer than line of sight? That is on a long, straight stretch of track. Yet even at lower speeds, only one can occupy each block section or ar ...

16mm motion film scans quite well to 1080p HD. That's about it's limit as far as native resolution goes (and detail is lost in shadows or if push-processing is involved).

16mm was cheap enough that it was used a lot by amateur filmmakers. Note that even this format does, at least at slower film speeds, have a higher level of detail that the television and video of the  ...

I've learnt that movie film was used for TV shows as late as the 1990s, maybe even the early 2000s. So were any railfan videos made during this time shot on a film format that has a higher level of de ...
