Mesmerising... for train enthusiasts

Warning, those with tendencies toward autism should avoid the following:

The Norwegian TV station NRK made a documentary consisting almost singlehandedly of uncommented HD footage from the front of the train going from Oslo to Bergen.

Mezmerising is a good word to describe the ride, also pastoral. Have been watching for 3.5 hours so far and am at Al station. Guess it is about the high point of the trip. Georgeous scenery, in early Fall with yellow leaves still on many trees, snow on the ground. (Snow is nice to see when you live in California). Highly recommend this download even at 22g's. Took a couple of days for me to get a a few gigs until two commercial servers kicked in and then the rest came down like a flood in about 5 hours.

It's strange but very serene. I should put it on at night before bedtime. Smile

Wow, looks amazing.
I should get it, but before that I should must away half a ton of junk from my harddisk in order to fit it on without making it too full Very Happy
