"Diesel Diary HD" volume 6 now available

Just letting those people who may be interested know that volume 6 of “Diesel Diary HD” is now available. Some of the content has already been published on YouTube, most of it has not, but probably will be over the next few years.

It seems there are still some people who are happy to buy blu-ray discs, and I’m assuming this is because they want to view the footage in full “genuine” high definition. The file size of broadcast quality HD footage with full colour depth is huge, and takes ages to upload, especially on my slow internet connection, which I will have to put up with for another year at least until the NBN becomes available in my suburb.
When I was in Canada last year I was able to do a bit of experimenting with uploads to YouTube. The free wifi connections that could be accessed (for example, in Vancouver airport and at most motels) were astonishingly fast, much quicker than most services you can access here even with fibre direct to the home/office. When I uploaded full resolution HD footage with very little compression, after YouTube “processed” the video the resulting picture quality was not much better that what you see in the material I upload from home. YouTube is now promoting 4K video uploads, but I just can’t see how that is possible, at least for here in Australia.

Anyway, here is a description of the content of DDHD6 and a short YouTube preview.
Thanks,
BW

“Diesel Diary HD” volume 6 contains  90 minutes of stunning high definition footage recorded from 2005 through to 2016 illustrating a huge variety of diesel locomotives operating throughout NSW. Witness the transition from the use of ageing C class locos to brand new PHC class units on SRS train no.4190 in 2016; quad 44s on a special tour to Kandos in January 2006; an astonishing variety of locomotives storming through the Southern Highlands on a very busy day in November 2005 and out west in October 2011; CLPs, Ls, GMs and even 4501 on heavy ARG trains on the main west and Illawarra ; and the impressive sight of seven CEYs on a huge 100 coal wagon train with distributed motive power.

How come the original Diesel Diary Films got taken down? I quite enjoyed watching them, although I do understand that youtube advertising didn't cover the costs.

Thank you for sharing:).

There's a bit of Vic stuff on YouTube, but do you have anything from mid 80's to late 90's??

Apologies if it's been asked before, but your material is next level.

Train Pictures has decided to make DVD copies of the original "Diesel Diary" available for order again. You can still find previews of all 29 volumes on YouTube.

If you go to my YouTube channel homepage and scroll through the list of all the videos available you will find lots from the early to mid 1990s - more than enough to cure the most severe case of insomnia!
