Chasing Trains

  • slideshow_large


Chris Eden-Green has been producing films about steam trains since 2012, and has a strong following of loyal rail fans from all over the world eagerly awaiting his latest DVDs and YouTube programmess. Fans liken his programmes to 'Top Gear' for steam trains. ('Top Gear' is a popular British TV show about cars).
He knows he'll never be a millionaire from doing this but he's passionate about steam trains and he doesn't care much what you think about that.
His fans have supported him via crowdfunding to take a trip to Germany to make a film about German steam trains. Together with his friends Sam and Adam they drive from Kent in England, to the Netherlands then on to Germany where they are challenged by the weather and unfamiliar timetables at Brocken Mountain, in the beautiful Harz National Park in Saxony, Germany. Very picturesque, if only the damned weather would behave itself!
Chris has Aspergers but it doesn't define him. Making films about trains is his way of escaping from the often frustrating world that surrounds us all. Things may be shitty sometimes but if you focus on what is happening right now, you'll be alright.
