I wanted to try and expedite my video postings so I I'm trying to do it from my phone. I remember when a phone was used to talk to people you couldn't see. Those were the days. Anyway, I digress. Here are a couple of videos from the week mostly at AGS South MP 195

Took the time to do a better editing job on my videos I shot of NS 951 and I included the pictures. Hope everyone had as much as fun chasing it as I did. Now we get to look forward to its return North up the AGS South.

Train 19 was in the hole and easing up to the crossing to wait on Train 20 which was only a few minutes away. Train 20 showed up at speed with Heritage Unit #156 in the trailing position. After passing Train 19 continued on with some great great horn work by the crew. Look forward to catching them tomorrow at Moundville with the CycleCam.

A few video's from the last of last week. I was to busy and the weather would
not cooperate for thw guality of chasing I wanted to do. However I was able to
break out the CycleCam again and get some practice in down at Moundville. It
still needs some tweaking but it's still showing promise.
Wanted to get some cahsing time in this week but have to go to Mobile to pick up
my trains from the Azelea City Club. We suffered a catastrophic flood last week
and I need to go check out the damage. Maybe I'll get lucky and catch something
on the 3-B

The weather was right for a good old fashion train chasing and NS 340 provided the sport with two KCS Belle's on the fron and one pushing on the rear. The chase starts at MP 192 in Cottondale and ends at MP 172 in Woodstock, AL The train is seen going in at CP Fleming for Amtrak and then again at Coaling and Vance all the while with great horn work by the crew!
