Railcam hits 25,000 club on YouTube channel

Railcam is delighted to announce that it has reached the landmark of 25,000 subscribers on YouTube.

The channel offers taster feeds from some of the popular camera locations available on the Railcam website.

Railcam started broadcasting in 2009 and began its youTube channel a few years later to share some of the highlight videos. Live streams began later as more subscribers boarded the Railcam train.

Viewers have now reached almost 100,000 individuals a month and an incredible 4.5 million have seen something from Railcam over the same period. Around 1,500 have added their support by subscribing bringing that number to the 25,000 mark.

The channel has recently introduced its first foray into scenic cams with the introduction of the Teign Estuary location. The camera is set to pan throughout the day and gives stunning views of the harbour and river mouth up to Newton Abbot. A dedicated railway cam is available on the main website.

Other popular YouTube streams include Crewe, York, and Peterborough which is another new concept for Railcam. The Peterborough stream offers views from 4 cameras situated at Railworld and changes every 5 minutes to give subscribers the full range of availability.

Railcam continues to grow and now offers over 100 different camera streams on its main site from mainline and heritage locations around the UK and the guest streams from around the World. New locations and upgrades are also in the pipeline.

Railcam Data feeds available on the main site

The main site also offers live signalling diagrams, data feeds, daily news updates, and a chatroom to exchange views and information on the hobby. Full access subscription packages are available for £23 a year or £4 a month.

Railcam Director, Adrian Bradshaw said,

“”YouTube is a great way to showcase what we do at Railcam – whether it’s clips of the interesting or unusual passing our cameras or the live previews we now provide. Hitting the 25,000 mark is a great achievement for our Social Media team and all our followers, and we look forward to welcoming more of those YouTube viewers as subscribers on our main website, very soon.”
