After recently viewing a train movie posted by HighLandCattle (Train Talk), I thought I would share a video I made several years ago after first purchasing a MOT Steam Engine with rolling stock.  This was my first Lego display coming out of my dark ages.

When making the 15-second movie clip, I tried a few songs including:

- Big Bad John by Jimmy Dean (yes, that was the founder of the sausage company) - my personal favorite
- Battle of New Orleans - Johnny Horton
- El Paso - Marty Robbins (he did a number of old gunfighter ballads)

I ended up going with Big Bad John because of the gold mine prominenty displayed.

Hope you enjoy!

Thatīs a nice clip and a very nice layout too!  *y*
The use of B&W was a good and interesting choice.

I like your clip, a bit short bu that's okay.
With only fifteen seconds to be musically filled I think you did a good job, I personally prefer Marty Robbins' El paso but in this case it would not have worked out.

Nice westerntown and that great steamtrain (I am anxiously waiting for mine to arrive in the post).

Keep filmin'  *y*

Since you mentioned it:

El Paso

Hell, I might as well share the battle of New Orleans as well.  I liked the beginning of this one:

New Orleans

As I play these files, I had a few more songs as well, but these were the better of the selection.
