Those folks have a number of rail cams across the country.  I spend my screen time at Deshler.

Deshler has been looking like a roller coaster lately ... Surprise

They had a free preview week for the Cajon Cams (Hesperia) pretty nice, but not sure if they justify a full subscription.

I clicked on the west camera and saw a headlight approaching off Mars Hill. A long eastbound stack train just passed. Thanks for posting.

Really cool - thanks for sharing the links. Flagstaff is one of my favorite places to watch trains. Nice view of the Lumberyard Brewing Co in the East view too. My profile photo has the Flagstaff Depot on the right.

I've been watching the wesbound Southwest Chief station stops the past few nights but may miss tonight because the train is showing almost three hours of delay (on time at Raton but two hours late into Lamy NM, nearly three into Albuquerque) with an estimated 11:45 pm arrival at this point.  Not sure what was going on, unless one of the power units failed and was replaced at Albuquerque.  It certainly wasn't interference with BNSF freights.

EDIT: Chief made it Flagstaff right about midnight Tuesday, three hours late, made up a half hour by the time it got to LA Union Station this morning.
