I didn't notice any differences, too engrossed into the music, hypnotised me

Wow, really cool thing to do. But surprisingly small differences between them. Hoping for more comparation videos between the past and now.

#3 the music is this one
Star Guitar - The Chemical Brothers
The particularity of this music is the synchronisation between music and the video elements

You would have thought the 2013 train would have got there first, until you remember that the 1953 train had a 60 year start. Just goes to show how much faster trains are these days :S

I like the fact most of the original equipment trackside remain, and most flora survived the 60 yrs. a good historical study for die hard rail fans like myself.

Doesn't look like much changed at all.. except that people used to wear business attire & suits back then, and railroad workers look way more casual now

More tracks, more passengers 60 years ago. We're obviously doing something wrong.

I'm always fascinated how the film captures wider dynamic range than digital sensor. Just look at the visible clouds throughout the trip in the middle frame and compare it to the digital shot.
