Nice video Pete, and the camera did do a good job with the sound. I'm impressed that the mic didn't peg out.

Was nice to hear 7470 not sounding like an upside down triangle.....

This is probably a dumb question, but what does an upside-down triangle sound like?

It would also look great in Notch Train colors, e.g. the paint scheme they used on 2820.
