Amazing Masstransiscope Stop Motion Animation Art

I'm a huge fan of animation and I love trains. Back in the early 1980's an the artist, Bill Brands realised that a moving train itself could be used to make a video experience for it's passengers. In this video are a compilation of stories about the project and several very informative interviews with the artist.

Over many years this public art project fell victim to time, dirt and vandals, but was restored fully in 2008. I remember going back and forth a few times just to see it again.
