UPDATED VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yyNdG5OLs7s This video is a simple yet incredible way to see just how small we are, and how big our universe is. How long would it take to travel to Andromeda on a plane going 500Km/h? What's the biggest star ever discovered? How many earths could fit inside the sun? This video does not have every single star / galaxy known to man, it would be far too long. Instead, I have used several specific bodies of stars to use as a sort of "milestone scale" for this. Enjoy!

Includes GWR HST! A ride on the South Western Railway class 444 between Dorchester and Weymouth. The tracks are poorly jointed just after leaving Dorchester, so it's extremely bumpy and loud - It was difficult to keep the camera steady, trust me! The bumping ends after about a minute. (heh) After going through the two tunnels, you'll start seeing the coast, and, as I zoomed in, you can see Portland in the distance, from about 1 mile north of Upwey. After passing through Upwey, you'll see the Supermarkets, Sainsbury's, Morrisons, the lot. Sometimes, there's a train at Weymouth Sidings - I was lucky to have noticed the HST sitting there, with the MK3s in the new GWR livery, but with an FGW HST on the front. Notice the announcements onboard still say "South West Trains". Weymouth services were making additional stops at Staines, due to engineering I think. The line speed between Dorchester and Weymouth is 85mph at the most, 35 (I think) near Dorchester, 40 near Weymouth, and just 15 or 25 at Weymouth station. Once again, Apologies for the unstable recording at beginning, this was due to extremely bumpy tracks! Enjoy this 60fps video!

I wonder what the services from Victoria would be like in 10 years... So I was bored and decided to make a text to speech version of london victoria announcements set in the year 2026, where Bognor services ran through Sutton, and XC was bought by National express. In real life, i predict mostly that the XC will be bought by the National Express company more than the Bognor via Sutton, though they could both happen at sometimes for sure. The National express cross country one is Leicester. Couldn't pronounce it right, sorry. This is just a small test or maybe a mini project that I may do with waterloo and maybe Kings Cross also. Hope you enjoy. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Other than that, this is the Full ride from Weymouth to the North of Portland, Victoria Square, which is just north of both Chiswell (pronounced "chisel" and Fortuneswell). Music: This girl.

How many Lumia devices do you think there are? In actual fact, 42 lumia phones have been released to date. (42... what a coincidence) and this video shows all of them. That's a bit more than you probably thought! All phones on this video are genuine Microsoft/Nokia devices which have been released or are available. None of these are "rumored" or "fake". Over the last five years, Nokia has Partnered with Microsoft to create a new business-friendly mobile platform, which is also popular among first-time smartphone users due to their stability, design, simplicity and cameras. As said above, this video shows all 42 Lumia devices released to date, from the Lumia 800, the world's first Lumia, up to the Lumia 650, Microsoft's latest device released in Mid-2016. Among the 42 devices shown, the chances are you've probably either heard, seen, or used at least one of these devices. Though the platform may not be as used or popular as Android or IOS, it certainly doesn't stand short of many features. While Windows Phone lacks apps, it completely triumps the Camera and Performance sector, with even some of the Low-end devices performing just as well as some high-end Android - however, specs-wise, Windows Phone devices are usually on par with iPhones, Similar RAM and processor speed is the main bit. It seems Microsoft hasn't given up yet - while there have been rumors that they could be killing off Lumia devices altogether, there's still a few lumias rumored - The long-awaited Surface phone, which has been in the thoughts since 2013, along with others, the Lumia 850, 750, and the 1030, though the latter is said to be cancelled. It's unknown wether any of these devices are in development, as MS hasn't released a device in almost 8 months. The current Lumia phone i'm using now is the Lumia 830. I've also used the 735, 550, and of course, the 520. In my opinion the 830 is much better than all three combined - its 10MP pureview camera completely obliterates the other three - outstanding picture quality, though the 735 also had a very nice camera, though it was very bad in low light shots, but also had a very handy 5MP selfie snapper. The Lumia 550 also had a very decent camera, capable of shooting lovely 5MP stills in daylight, and can easily be top class of low end phones. The Lumia 520, my first ever smartphone, though I don't remember much, had a nice feel to it, however video recording was horrible. What windows phones do you have or wish to buy? Let me know below!

I was bored and I'm a huge fan of the Lumia phones (Nokia/Microsoft) so I decided to create some ideas on my own - and in my opinion they turned out quite nice. Al of these phones and designs was made completely from MS Powerpoint - No other software was used to create them. Also, there's a mild Mistake on the Lumia 850, about the Intel Processor, Just ignore that, wasn't meant to be there. How were my ideas? Comment below, I'd love to know!

Filmed With: OnePlus One. This station, just a few miles into the Wales Border, has 4 platforms. Sadly, on the day of filming, there were lots of engineering. Normally this station has tons of action, so it wasn't good this day. Filmed on 19 March 2017, so it's a bit of a late upload.

This is just a test to see what my three chosen trains can do. We are testing: FORCE: Will these trains push 32 wagons off the track? GRADIENT: How high will these trains go before derailing? ROLLERCOASTER: Virtually Impossible. Enjoy!

APOLOGIES FOR BAD QUALITY I've been making a TS2017 route, which is nowhere near completed, to expect to see many random blank stations, however, they all do have a name on the map. I'm about 40% finished. Meanwhile, enjoy. The huge tower you see is just for a marker, i'll remove these later.
