Hi guys:

I just got a new digital camcorder and I was in the Metro-North RR area for a couple of weeks. The Fl-9s seem to be almost gone, but I did get one video of an apparent non-revenue movement of coaches being pushed really fast by an FL9 through Fairfield.

See it here. My video is in Mpeg 4/asf format.

I have a whole bunch of other videos and pics but I'll need to find space for them first maybe a week or two. Watch this space.

Otto, if you have a Mac, you might not be able to play it.
I believe .asf is a Microsoft format....

... although, I found this that might work for you.

Here (1.53MB) something I recorded of an F unit last month. At Merritt 7 on 23 June train was 1716 xStamford to Danbury.

And here (1.16MB) something that sounds almost like an F unit but is Irish.
187 departs empty stock in the sidings at Rosslare Europort after working a train from Limerick in 2002. These loco’s no longer work these trains as they are now DMU’s.
