I haven't seen the Crescents meet in quite awhile so I decided to head out to Coaling to see if I could get lucky. And lady luck reared her pretty head. Train 19 was just coming to a stop in the hole and much to my suprise it powered by only Heritage Unit 145! That's right, a single motor and it was a Heritage Unit. What are the odds of that? If you don't believe me watch the video.I even fired up the DueceCam for this rarity.
I also got 172, 219, 22R, A suprise catch as a NS special Seimens Train blast up the hill at MP 195 and then an even numbered train with mucho power conquers the hill. Not a bad day on the AGS South

The last of the weekends video. This particuliar video was shot with a combination of my new Canon T3 and JVC Everio. The verdict is still out on the T3. I suppose I need to learn to use it before discarding it.

A few video's from last weeks passings. I've been trying some new techniques with different camera angles and different tri-pods so they may be a bit jerky and the zooming might make you dizzy. I have also quit adding trains numbers and dates for the time being as this is time consuming when it comes to editing. I don't listen to the radio much so accuracy is being compromised. Anyway take a look and see what you think.
