How to Work with Layouts
Our video archives are set to be a 10-day archive. The archives are searchable by day. If the cameras have a tech issue or are down, there will be no archive for that timeframe. We strive to keep the cameras up and running but there are some things that are out of our control.

Where can I go to rent/buy train videos. VRF.TV While this platform is part of the VRF world it will require a new account to be created. Creating the account is free but there is in app purchases/rentals. Select videos have previews for your review at no charge.
Why does my purchase say it is for 50 Years? The payment processor that we use requires a time span in that field so 50 years it is for $19.99 purchase.
How long is the rental good for? The rental $4.99 is good for 72 hours from time of purchase.
Why is my video quality not HD? Most of these vintage videos were captured on 8mm, 16mm or VHS. We need to be happy that these videos are here for us. Newer video on higher quality equipment will be closer to HD.
Why are there black bars on each side of the video? This is due to the constraints of the video formatting. I.e. 4:3 aspect ratio.
Why is there no volume? The player volume is best fine tuned via the volume slider under the video player. Some operating system settings may cause your video to start muted.
Can I download my purchased content? At this time that option is not available due to security protocals that need to be built out to protect our vendors.
Who do I contact for payment issues? InPlayer handles all the transactions on their platform. Email email@example.com first and we can assist you from there.
