Amtrak Trains 19 and 20 meet at Tuscaloosa. 20 is holding the main and 19 is going in at Bryant to back out after 20 gets in the clear. Epic horn work by 19 as they go under 15th Street

Went out to Woodstock to catch the late running Crescents meeting. Train 19 had the Patron Tequila Express bringing up the rear. Train 19 took the siding while Train 20 came down the main. I rushed to the bridge to get a once in a lifetime above the rails rolling meet of the Crescents. Big Mo laid on the horn as the Patron car came by and under the bridge. It was perfect except for the fact I didn't push the record button. That's right. There is no video of this awsome spectical. None except for a short, out of focus shot.

Using the new scanner feed with the better antenna I was able to get out and catch more trains than usual. Spent most of the last few days listening to it on my phone and running up to MP 195 to catch the trains I heard calling signals all the way from Crabtree to MP 189. You can even hear the AGS South dispatcher calling the Black Warrior Bridge Operator to see if the bridge is locked. Good stuff for sure. Anyway here are my videos from the last few days. Enjoy!

Well not that recent but within the last week or so. Trying something new by adding sound bites to the video's when editing. The September 13th video has the first offering. These are gleaned from the scanner archives and put in the sound track during the editing process. It's still in the experimental stage and not all trains have it...yet
