It is traditional for bank holiday TV schedules to include a few old films. Not many these days go back to the era of silent movies, though.
However, recently HS2 Ltd have decided to remedy that, by issuing a silent animation of what HS2 will be like.
You can view it on the BBC website. But, like the BBC warn “this video has no sound”.
If anyone wants to know what a high speed train sounds like when going at full tilt, the above is the best one I can find just now….
This will make you happy Gary, I just done it look: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=smgPZKDhJWY
Crafty devils not adding sound effects. You should edit it and put the sound of a HSR train going past, that would give people a fairer idea of what it would be like
