Since I designed and launched the Summerlands Chuffer in 2009, I have taken great pleasure, both in filming a variety of locos and in seeing videos sent to me by customers. Some of the earlier ones are of lower quality, but I have included them as the show variety and also they show how the railways have developed over the years. So thank you to those who have made the films and I hope you enjoy viewing them!

I am always on the lookout for good videos to add to these pages. Here are a few pointers:
- Your loco needs to be fitted with a Summerlands Chuffer
- The video needs to be uploaded to Youtube
- Ideally about 3 to 5 minutes or so long (my experience is that average
viewing is about 2 minutes!)
- Ideally nice and close in with a steady camera (a bean bag is very useful)
- Ideally with no talking over or distractions.
- Ideally uploaded in 720HD but no less than 640 resolution.

New Pine Tree Junction Video Pages
Lindsay Newton and the Pine Tree Junction team (Dave & John) make wonderful videos aimed at the younger enthusiast. Many of these feature the Thomas the Tank Engine Models, but some feature Lindsay's live steam fleet - all of which are fitted with Summerlands Chuffers. I have created two pages for the steam videos and there is a link to the PineTreeJunction channel for the Thomas videos.
