Storyline

Without a doubt this is the finest railroad moving picture ever made, and for variety and beauty of scenery it can hardly be surpassed the world over. This view is taken from the front of a rapidly moving locomotive, over a stretch of track made up of a continuous series of reverse curves; and every turn opens a vista of surpassing beauty. Conwy Castle itself, one of the most picturesque and historic spots in Wales, appears from time to time in the picture. Written by AMB Picture Catalogue *UPDATED*

Dry as dust but fascinating.
11 October 2013 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

I saw this rather heavily corroded short film today when I visited the German Film Museum in Frankfurt. Now I will admit that it was dry as dust, but you need to understand that for 1898 it was pretty advanced and must have wowed audiences. It consists of a camera mounted to a train that slowly comes towards Conwy Castle (that IS how it's spelled, by the way). And, since train tracks go around the castle, so does the camera. It sure would have been nice if the camera would have turned to show the castle as it passed, but stationary cameras was the norm for the time and more interesting views of scenic life surely would come about when innovations like moving cameras became the standard. Still, I did enjoy seeing the place, as it's been about 6 years since I last saw this amazingly beautiful town.
