My latest video. Shot on January 6th, 2012.

Shot in Wilbraham, MA at the Railroad Ave crossing. Late in the day as the sun was going down. Starts with the Southbound Amtrak Vermonter that was followed shortly by a Eastbound Ethanol train from CSX. The final train is the Northbound Amtrak Vermonter.

You can check out my YouTube railfanning channel here:

I joined YouTube in November of 2006, and I currently have over 150 video uploads spanning from 2006 to the present. Most of my videos are of the BNSF Railway in Oklahoma and the Union Pacific Railroad in Texas, with a few videos from other places as well.

I started posting videos last winter after getting a Nikon 7000 DSLR that has video capability. So far I have Charlotte and Norfolk light rail, and Southern #630 steam excursions out of Spencer NC.

Mostly Amtrak and NYC area subway/commuter rail. Random international stuff as well. Early videos have rare stuff, later videos are of higher quality.
