We’re the first to admit that we are suckers for any kind of travel video, and we usually fall head over heels when it involves time-lapse photography. This week we’re wasting minute after minute thanks to the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation—NRK.
Basically they took a whole bunch of pictures and videos from one of the most northern stretches of Norway’s railroad system. It’s the one that kind of links Trondheim over with Bodø. Then through the magic of technology they smooshed things into about a minute, so that you can see what it’s like to take the train through the countryside—and through four seasons—in just seconds.
Best of all NRK is kind of making all their footage available to the public, so you can pretty much manipulate and manage things into your own creative little video as well. They’ve got all the details over on their website, like how they used a SonyXDcam slapped right to the front of a Di. 4 locomotive to score the footage. There's even a whole documentary to go along with the quick little video, so you can entertain yourself for a little big longer if need be.
