    Run8 youtube review on the Fitzgerald

    Came across this Youtube review about the Fitzgerald from a real railroader which is interesting.

    We're back and we're finally trying Run 8 Train Simulator. As some of you may know, I am an ex-railroader and we see exactly how things compare to the real l...

    Very cool video! Haven't got through all of it just yet but I'm enjoying watching on my lunch break.

    Jason has done an awesome job on this route.

    Thanks

        Spur's added a second video, a continuation of his coal train run. I'm really enjoying his commentary as I find it really brings the Fitz route to life.

          I dislike videos which feature picture-in-picture of the creator's face.....cannot see any reason why they do that.
          What makes them think that we want to watch them narrating? Vanity? Ego?
          Beats me.

              While pondering whether to buy X-Plane 12, watched a couple of YT clips and all seem to have the same phenomenon. Seems to be particularly the case when they are streaming and recording it.

                Yeah...you're probably right, Mike.
                I find it annoying with this face staring out at me.

                  Same here Bruce, i prefer to concentrate on the video itself.

                  We must be a right bunch of grumpy gits, boys

                    Well now, hot on the heels of episode two, and Spur drops episode three. This is a continuation of the run on the Fitz Sub and it's pretty interesting, especially later in the video when he has to deal with a brake issue I've never seen. Oh, and for those who don't like YT videos when the presenter is present in a tiny portion of the screen, don't bother watching this one, Spur's face is still in there lol. Cheers boys.

                      Tiny portion or not, why do it in the first place?

                      Bu never mind, after the previous editions I wouldn't have expected anything else, but thanks for the confirmation all the same.

                        I just think it's YT trend, with more presenters either showing themselves/using an actor/or using an 'anime' character. No idea why they do it either. It's what it is.

                          Yeah, it is what it is, that's for sure.
                          I've done quite a few videos over the years for YT, both with and without commentary, and not once have I ever considered sticking my ugly mug in as a picture-in-picture!

                            I am going to do one with me full height naked. That will soon put a stop to the trend.
