Synchronized, Timelapse Video Shows Train Traveling from London to Brighton in 1953, 1983 & 2013

In 1953, the BBC filmed a train journey from London to Brighton, “squeezed into just four minutes.”  30 years later, in 1983, they recorded the same journey again. And then for a third time in 2013. Above, you can watch all three journeys side by side. The videos are perfectly in sync, which makes it particularly easy to see what has changed — and what hasn’t — over the course of 60 years. You will see similarities and differences in the landmarks along the routes. But the biggest contrast? It’s the people who get off of the train at the end. Enjoy the ride.
