TrainLife Sponsored Movie: Trackside - the Story of Railroad Photographers

July 21, 2017

We are Railfans. So we get it. When our friend Josh approached us about the possibility of funding a film that he had an idea for we were all for it. He wanted to make a video that helped those that don't understand the hobby of railfanning and model railroading get a better understanding of it.
From ERA Films:

"This is the story of a group of friends united by a common hobby: railroad photography. This documentary explores why these people take interest in trains and how they express themselves through photography, cinematography, and scale models, and highlights the strengths and problems within the hobby of railfanning."


Thank you to ERA Films for the many hours of work that went into this beautifully made documentary.
