A trip round the Bekonscot Model Railway


The Model Villager: Tim Dunn

A few years ago, I was ‘playing trains’ in the signalbox at Bekonscot Model Village. In a quiet moment, I sellotaped a small camera on to a wagon, stuck a spare loco behind it and sent it off around the circuit. That evening, I added a few captions and uploaded it to Youtube. I think it was after I’d been to the pub, too.

Four years on, it’s had 360,000 views on Youtube. Looking back, we had no idea it would be so popular. We’d perhaps have stood some of the fallen model people up, trimmed some of the bushes and put out all of the 30+ model signals that should line the route. Perhaps it’s time to do a new one. Anyway, enjoy the drivers-eye view of Britain’s biggest model train set.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
