    Roly was that yellow at the bottom flashing or steady lit? It was either a slow approach (flashing) or restricting (steady on)

    Is this any reason that you haven't applied to a train company's engineering program to become an engineer? I don't know how old you are but you sound under 40 years old. Too late for me but you may be young enough to start a career as a train engineer.

    Nice video during sunset! Is the whistle operated by conductor? We don't have anything like that on the rail cars.

    Too bad 'Millieum Force' takes up half the shot. 🙁

    You are right about the rails, the overgrowth on them makes it look abandoned.

  • Reply J Greiff May 27, 2018 at 6:26 pm

    It looks like Millennium Force with his tripod shooting a video. Good shooting I always wondered why they stopped and then backed, I knew they were backing into the Union Station.

  • Reply Virginia Lover Productions July 25, 2018 at 9:13 pm

    That sound at 1:21 is heavenly!! Great video!

  • Reply Mike 1958 August 17, 2019 at 1:05 am

    How far was Tampa from there? It seemed like a far piece to travel backward.
