Something Different....

My first commentary!

Anyone remember my Interview with the Engines when I was just starting out? If not check it out! I might not hold up as well as my other stuff, but it's worth a watch! Just FYI, I look nothing like that now! I've had my braces off, and my hair hasn't been that long since!

Anyhoo, I made this when my cousin (with whom I made the original) came to town and asked to do another video! He also assisted me in creating Mavis. So a big thanks to him! I think we both had some fun!

Do you think I should do more commentaries? Please leave a comment here on or on the video if you think so!

The Bluebells are coming!

Sorry this is so late, but I've been incredibly busy! Anyhoo here's my thoughts on Bluebells of England and Stepney's Special!  Let's start at the beginning shall we?

If you couldn't tell, I took a lot of inspiration for this episode from Rusty to the Rescue. I was fortunate enough to find a decent instrumental of Stepeny's escape theme. I'm also really proud of my Other Railway scenes! I love the way the fog and diesels turned out! Did anyone notice that the station on the Bluebell Railway was Sheffield Park? That's my little Easter Egg! If you haven't already, check it out!

Now two weeks later comes the next chapter, Stepney's Special.

Once again, absolutely loving how this episode came! Once again, the scrapyard scenes turned out really well! Once again lots of inspiration coming from Rusty to the Rescue! The one thing I did have to change in this episode was I had to edit the original text to avoid using names of other Bluebells that I couldn't make appear. Also this episode has cameos galore! Oliver, Gordon, James, Percy, and Toby (not to mention Flying Scotsman, Wilbert, and Fergus as Bluebell engines, and 199, The Diesel, Spatter, and Derek as Other Railway Diesels, and Bertram as a scraped engine). So all and all, I'm super please with it! Watch it below!

Now I don't think I'll be able to get Train Stops Play out this weekend. I know, I know, I've been really behind lately, but I've had school, Cross Country meets, and now it's my church's annual carnival and I'm working all weekend. Who knows, maybe I'll be able to film Sunday. Thanks so much for all of your patience! I really appreciated no one demanding new episodes!
