Images: These pictures are not censored for quality. What one person considers a bad or useless picture may be exactly what someone else is looking for. I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Videos: These videos are very big, which is why railfanning videos are so rare on line. As long as Windows Media Player says "Connecting" it is working, even it if appears to be taking a very long time. It says "Connecting" until it has finished downloading the video. Please be patient. If you are unable to play these videos with Windows Media player, a problem which exists with some versions of Media Player and (sometimes) with Internet Explorer versions lower than 6, I strongly recommend the use of Quicktime if it is available. If you are using Linux, mplayer needs to be told that the videos have a bit depth of 16 (-bpp 16) to work.

Filenames refer to location, date (dd.mm.yy), and camera-assigned four digit id number.

Romont, Switzerland
January 04, 2012 I took the train from Geneva to St. Moritz and back. At Bern, all photos the camera took were corrupt for the duration of my trip and I did not find out until getting back to Canada on January 7th. The photos lost stretched from Bern to St. Moritz on the 4th, a trip to Lyon and Grenoble, France, on the 5th, and a short tour of Geneva itself on the 6th on the way to the airport. Bug reports have been filed to both Canon and Nanogear, whose camera and 32GB card respectively failed to communicate passed the 8GB mark with all pictures being written as NULLs with no error generated. The immediate playback from the camera's memory worked so there was no hint of trouble until it was too late. Tragic. Photos of the viaduct and tunnel at Filisur are extracted from the video. Others may follow.
