The DVD orders have finally died off to a dribble after the best pre Christmas sales ever, the new magazines are out so why not get online now and start ordering up your treats or get instant access with digital downloads and of course we have around half a million still photos on our Smugmug site ( owners of Flckr). Super then stick with us and continue to put PMP on Youtube up with the worlds largest transport hobby sites, followed by nearly 70k subscribers, 70k viewers each day, watched in over 200 countries or territories each month. 5 film clips with at least 1M watchers, one with over 10M so far and climbing.
Our archives are on digital download and we are now scanning old cine using the latest digital technology to get crisp better then when it was made shots. We are covering all our outstanding archives in this way and placing the original cine with OTA for future security. OTA ( Online Transport Archive) is a registered charity and has stable controlled environments to protect these cherished transport memories. They like all our stills can be used commercially by selecting the correct method of purchase, its all online now.
Remember we have been supporting transport enthusiasts in nearly six decades cum January. From our start on video in 1988 we always used tripod steadied shots, no wobbly wonders with us. We have a life time interest in transport which has covered being an enthusiast, starting to sell photos, taking video, selling video and photos, selling DVDs and digital photo or film downloads and so much more while still remaining like a friend to thousands of fellow enthusiasts throughout the would bringing our shared hobbies in a united fellowship of kindred spirits.
I've unpacked the replacement cine scanner, tested now and ready to go. The new films on Cheshire, Newcastle and Sunderland are now finished on the PMP list and will have covers completed Sunday morning and will be added to the shop in the morning. We completed most of our 2019 bus coverage in the UK just a very few carried forwards to 2020. Among the first in the list each year are favourites such as Manchester, Birmingham, Liverpool, Wrexham etc. So much has changed this year in the North West particularly in Manchester.
I've effected temporary repairs to our kitchen ceiling so the gaping holes don't look so bad and we went to Sale ( Manchester) to visit cousins Trish and Derek. Tomorrow am Christmas cake decoration, the tree are up at No17, lights flashing inside and out, it must be Christmas. Lets lookm back at Manchester last January
