The web dangling down over the camera #2 is causing a false positive sighting every 30 seconds.  Until this can be fixed this week the camera (#2) will only record movements between the hours of 7am until 6pm.

The Bunbury Street Railcam Project kicked off around May 2011.  A project I had been promising to do for a while and luckily I finally found the time.  With the help from a number of people including Tim, Rob, Michelle and others we managed to build what I thought might be of some interest to the railfan community.  

My inspiration for this project came from the tremendous work undertaken by Graham Elliott at Gheringhap Loop (http://ghaploop.railpage.org.au). I would also like to acknowledge the continued and dedicated support of Michelle who manages the annotations on the photostream with some help from the community.

Never really expecting the site to be of significant interest almost 19 months on I decided it was time to take a look at the flickr stats.
As many of you know Camera #2 is the main camera covering the site. Camera #1 has a more general view of the area and sends am image to an ftp server in the USA every 20 seconds. http://tinyurl.com/96gfwat


These images are put together in real time to form a video and provides railfans with a timelapse of the traffic through Sims Street Junction and the Bunbury Street Tunnel.

Camera #2 is a little more interesting in that it uses motion detection to record events on the tracks which mostly involves trains coming and going. Once an event is detected, an image is taken which is then sent to Flickr.http://www.flickr.com/photos/Railpage Australia 

The dedicated bunbury street tunnel flickr photostream was founded around June 2011. A 30 second video of the event is also recorded and archived on a server in Melbourne, Australia. The best of these recordings are sent to the 

http://www.youtube.com/Railpage Australia youtube channel with some also being added to the flickr photostream.

So how successful has the project been? I will leave it to you guys to decide. I will leave you with this however. Today I checked the flickr photostream stats and was amazed to find we are approaching nearly 1 million views of the photostream. Yep, we are at circa 946,000 views of the stream. Now that is impressive!

There are just over 82,000 images on the photostream!

Holy Moly!!!
1,000,000 views is a heck of a lot.
The project is really a credit to you and your band of helpers.
I think it is something you and all the other people who where involved should really be proud of.

That cam is a very handy tool, even for myself up in NSW, and Im sure its probably one of the most well known devices in this hobby. Say Bunbury St Cam and everyone knows what your talking about, such is its usefulness and fame. It helps me as I can check whats going to be on the next days MB freighters so I know what Im going out and getting (and if it would be worth it!). Also I can watch all the interesting Vic movements past the camera. When I went down to Melbourne last month, the one place I wanted to go was the Tunnel to get some shots, and get a good look at the camera  Wink

And I did appear on the camera a few times that day!!

Hi guys, I've just noticed that the Sensr feed (https://sensr.net/users/brian-evans/cameras/Railpage-australia-bunbury-street-railcam-1) hasn't been updated since around 15:00 last Thursday, is there something wrong with it or isn't it being used any more?

I notice the code says https though, do we have to login to it now?

Should be working fine now.  Note this stream is about to move to HD so the video quality will be greatly improved.

The proposed upgrade of the Bunbury Street setup has commenced with new hardware being ordered on the weekend.  This project will upgrade the current cameras to HD 1280x720 which is approximately double the resolution of the current setup.

I expect the equipment (well the first parts) to arrive later this week.  

For those of you who support the Bunbury Street Webcam Project I would encourage you to assist by making a donation to the project. All proceeds will be used to upgrade the site.

Due to internet connectivity issues overnight, some BunburyCam sightings were delayed.  This has now been fixed through a workaround. Images are now updating.

Just saw this on Gheringhap Railcam and there's no live feed for it even though it says so!

Railpage Gheringhap Loop Railcam No 3 (HD TESTING). This camera has a live feed via Railpage

What do you think?

Thanks

There are currently no live feeds out of Gheringhap but we can fix this. Camera #3 needs a reset through a visit.  Camera #2 is working ok.
