Southern Pacific Railroad in the Cascades – Cab Forward Cab Ride Re-Edit 2


A cab ride up the hill featuring the view from from the windows of a Southern Pacific cab forward. The cab interior was created using 3rd PlanIt track planning software. More detail was added to the cab interior for second re-edit. Adding details to a scene like this is a lot like eating potato chips. You keeping wanting just one or two more. It verges on being addictive. Layout details at steinborn.org

Austin Texas Steam Engine Train Ride Cedar Park to Bertram, TX


I didn’t have much footage to work with so I made the most of it. Footage was originally shot in 1080p on the Canon 7D with the Canon 24mm-105mm ef series lens. This is a short video of the Austin Texas Steam Engine Train that departs from Cedar Park, TX and travels through the Texas hill country stopping for 15min at the historic Bertram depot then heads back to Cedar Park. Enjoy the 1920’s to1950’s passenger cars where you can bring your own food and snacks. The Betram Flyer train features a concession stand and gift shop. You are able to walk around freely from car to car.

Sonoma Train Town ride – part 1


A video of the first half (to the stop at the “town” and animals) of the Sonoma Train Town railroad. Engine was a steam engine as it usually is on Sundays. Notice how the camera fogs up after going in some tunnels. We sat right after the engine. Taken with a Canon SD1200IS. See matspointofview.blogspot.com for more camera info.

VIDEO TAKEN MAY 18TH, 2008. We take a trip south of the PA border, to Wilmington, DE, in search of steam. And our search was without dissappointment, as we’ll see steam engine #98 pulling the Mount Cuba Express. You’ll see views from in the cab, as well as trackside, on this rainy and dreary day. So sit back, and enjoy this video clip of #98 heading up the Mt. Cuba Express!

Mount Rainier Scenic RR Cab Ride


I managed to get a cab ride on No. 70, a 70-ton 2-8-2 Mikado built by Baldwin for logging duties in Hoquiam, Washington. This locomotive was built in my home town of Philadelphia in April 1922. It happens to use fuel oil instead of coal. The trip I took started in Mineral and went to Elbe, a distance of about 5.7 miles by railroad. The bridge we crossed is over Mineral Creek, a tributary of the Nisqually River. On this trip we had a student engineer, who is receiving instructions from the Road Foreman of Engines. This student engineer is qualified on geared locomotives, but not on rod engines such as No. 70. It should also be noted that the railroad does not like to use sanders to aid traction, as the sand gets all over the moving parts and is a burden to deal with. directorzone.cyberlink.com
