Take the Same Train Ride in 1953, 1983 and 2013 (Smithsonian)

In 1953 the BBC filmed a time-lapse of a train ride from London to Brighton, repeating the same film stunt in 1983 and 2013. In this video, you can watch the same train route over these 30-year intervals. Though it goes by a little fast to take in all the changes, seeing the two train conductors in 1953 and 2013 and listening to the music while seemingly flying down the tracks is pretty fun.
