March on Norfolk Southerns AGS South

Postby HWB » Fri Mar 02, 2012 9:45 pm

A weeks worth of videos in and around Mile Post 195 on the AGS South. I had to get most of them on my way home from work when I cross 26th Street in East Tuscaloosa. The signal at MP195 always lets me know what's on the way.

Amtrak Train 19 arrived first and then Big Mo brought Train 20 into Tuscaloosa an hour late due to mechanical problems ( I thought he was trying to avoid me but he had my hat!) Big Mo and crew wasted no time in getting 20 up to speed and making up time as I barely caught them running track speed at CP Flemming.

And I did get one from the Capture Cam early this morning

Went to Atlanta this week on the Cresent. Not a bad trip. It could have been
better but it could have been worse too.
Shot a few videos from the train. Not my best work but I didn't have a roomette.
Wont ever make that mistake again.
And as always shot some trains at MP195 as time allowed. I'm in Mobile this
weekend and as soon as I get all my rat killing done it's off to the track.

Here are the last weeks videos of the train arounf MP195 on the AGS South. With longer days and warmer temperatures there seems to be plenty of time for chasing but no time for editing. I think I will try shorter videos with more content.
The highlight of the week was a meet between the Cresents at Moundville, Alabama. This was the first time I had ever ventured down that way and got luck and caught Train 20 in the hole to meet Train 19 at speed. This trip also sees the introduction of the Cycle Cam. Yet to be perfected it does have potential.
There is also a massive UP consist heading NS225, Heritage Unit #145, and some light engine moves. Enjoy and thanks for watching
