Yep. That seems to be the popular answer (understandably). Another of the issues I have is that few of wifi boards available on the market are narrow enough to go in a steam engine. The alternative is to place it in the tender but that means trailing wires, which I'm keen to avoid. I'm concentrating on the diesels, currently, for this reason, and because it is a simpler solution to make the camera 'track' the track. If and when I get my camera up and running I hope to be able to finance a 'universal' solution.This is what I have been using, but it does rely on either removing the storage card or attaching the camera to a computer to upload the files. It can be viewed live on a mobile phone. It is only HD resolution, though, but would be small enough to install in a rail vehicle or locomotive if desired.
I would like a better solution too, but if a locomotive or coach was to be marketed, there would have to be a range of options offered to allow matching the vehicle to the layout location and time period. Therefore, to my mind, a kit of parts to be installed in a suitable vehicle on the purchaser's layout might be a better solution.
