Another (short) video. I tried to make this one interesting by including more information than I normally would.

Interesting that several of the tank cars looked to have the Placard painted on the shell of the car as well as displaying the required placard.

Interesting, seeing that NS unit facing the "wrong way."

And doesn't that CP unit have a melodious horn on it?

Good shootin' there son!  Thanks!

Thanks Wayne. We got another one tonight, with a couple nice chases and some foreign power. Just a reminder, I premiere a video every Friday night, and I'd love to have you!

New videos every Friday night?  Cool!  Something to look forward to on Fridays, 'cause let me tell you, aside from "Antiques Roadshow" there's nothing on Friday nights that interests me!

Crazy!  150 cable channels and "Nuthin's on!"

I was bad enough when I was kid and we only had seven VHF channels and there was "Nuthin' on!" 

Thank goodness for the YouTube!

Try four - ABC, CBS, and NBC affiliates, and the Canadians from across the Detroit River...

But there were some decent shows - Disney, Maverick, Welk, The 20th Century, to name a few.

That there was!  Gunsmoke, Bonanza, Rawhide, Cheyenne, The Rebel, Laramie, Death Valley Days, the Golden Age of TV Westerns. 

"Biography" was a good documentary series too.

"Victory at Sea" was the only show I didn't want to miss. I was an early reader and preferred the mental movies I got from Robert Louis Stevenson, Mark Twain and others. Oh yeah, and Rocky and Bullwinkle.

YouTube!!! Lately I've been hooked on cab rides on the Japanese rural lines.

rixflix aka Captain Video. Blessed be Jean Shepherd and all His works!!! Hooray for 1939, the all time movie year!!! I took that ride on the Reading but my Baby caught the Katy and left me a mule to ride.

Loved it as a kid - my Dad even bought the LP album of the music.  Still great to watch the episodes on YouTube.

I missed the first go-round of "Victory at Sea," I wasn't born yet, but I did catch it when Channel 11 out of New York re-ran it in 1970 on the 25th anniversary of the victory in WW2.  Magnificent!  Got the album too, Richard Rodger's score is simply pure genius!  

A sample:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sDuQp_AfVJk  

And later, when I met some of the guys who were there, oh my. 

The Japanese never had a chance, trust me.

Well, 300 cable channels and there are at best 3or 4 shows that I enjoy. Don't find much that I like. But thenks to ZOOM, I can attend programs by the Central Electric Railfans Association as well as some from the Blackhawk Chapter NRHS. They are not having in person meetings due to the pandemic and I don't like going out in the cold weather, driving 45 minutes each way or taking a scoot into Chicago. But ZOOM is a good substitute. And Harrison, you are lucky to have parents that see your talents and encourage (and assist) you in pursuit of your passion. I enjoy watching your videos and look forward to when you can extend the territory you can cover.

Another new video from the "Wilds" of upstate NY... This video has some interesting things, such as "930", aka a LHF "Hammerhead" light power move. And don't forget the drag race at Bluff...

Now THAT was a fast 13 minutes!  Well done Harrison!

Snow on April first?  Hey, when I lived in New Jersey I didn't stop worrying about snow until the first of May!  Got burned a few times, let me tell you!
