Big Boy 2019 under steam
Posted by richg1998 on Saturday, July 13, 2019 2:03 PM

I know I posted at the end of an announcement for a Big Boy schedule but it might be missed.

Nice Videos. Pulling covered hoppers. Doing work again.

If you ever fall over in public, pick yourself up and say “sorry it’s been a while since I inhabited a body.” And just walk away.

You did not see next video. Two Big Boy videos in that link.

Just in case, here is another one from You Tube. From a start.

If you want more than one video viewed - provide the link for the other videos.  YouTube varies what videos it shows as being available to its users each time they call up a video.

In the first link I provided, if you waited a few seconds, the second video showed up automatically by whoever made it.

It did for me.

The second link posting I found myself at You Tube.

I got the first link from the MRH forums. Others saw both videos with the covered hoppers after the first video ended.

That's nice.  I'm glad the algorithm found it for you.

Now post the dog-gone URL for the covered-hopper video.  The algorithm sure doesn't 'find' it for me, and apparently not for anyone else so far who cares.  And I can't find anything with Big Boys pulling covered hoppers when I search.

Think of it this way:  I click on the first link, and the algorithm thinks that, based on my last two videos viewed, I like taking photography of both flowers and trains.  So the next on on MY suggested stack in the column at right will be something about taking photograpsh of moving objects, or maybe of trains.  It will NOT be about the Big Boy and the list of videos you may have been watching all night.

Usually the YouTube algorith suggests to me a mix of Star Wars videos, video game videos, Lego reviews, meme videos, and classic and alt-rock playlists alongside my train videos. Its because its tailored to my interests and previous viewing habits. YouTube's algorith personally caters to each individual, and what shows up for one person on one video might not be recommended to another person who is watching that same video. 

(Although if you want a video with Big Boy pulling its hopper cars, here is one of them I found via the search bar: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uP3r7IDJv18)
