Default If you like Strauss music

you may like this,

although its totally different to the music in 2001 a space odyssey
a lot faster.

I love this short british transport film from 1962. lots of things to see, so much has changed and gone

London Paddington to Birmingham Snow hill in 5 minutes

enjoy

Thanks for posting. Quite hypnotic! Incidentally, the faster music Mike refers to is Perpetuum Mobile (Perpetual motion) by Johann Strauss Jr. I don't think this piece wouldn't have worked so well in 2001.

I have seen this video before, but not for a long long time. I saw it on TV just after I moved to this house, which is something like 15 years ago.

I love the noise as it pulls away, sounds like a mix between a jet engine and a vacuum cleaner

Similar to London to Brighton in 4 minutes - which was used in Supercar.
