Designing Worlds shares a Glimpse into the Past: Second Life Railways

This week, we take a look into the archives, to see again our show on Second Life Railways, first shown in 2012.

You can watch it on this blog, and you can also see the show on the Designing Worlds Archive Vimeo channel at: https://vimeo.com/375405889. And you can join the special Watch Party (also at 2pm SLT) in our studio on Garden of Dreams.

#DW153 Second Life Railways from Saffia Widdershins on Vimeo.

Saffia and Elrik further explore the extensive railway tracks that spread across the continents of the Second Life mainland, in the company of Marianne McCann and Moundsa Mayo of the Virtual Railways Consortium.

 

In addition to seeing some amazing locos, riding the rails and visiting numerous locations along the way, we learn about the history, organisations and technologies that lie behind the railways of Second Life.

And we took with us the brilliant photographer Wildstar Beaumont – who fell in love with the trains just as much as we did – and here’s a wonderful slideshow to prove it (you can see it full size here).
