Found this online https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t6BIbVTKa_0&t=94s" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; Two questions, what is with the intro music? And did someone not remind the deputy Chief that railroads don't like hiring railfans? Thanks

Here we go again (sigh). If you liked the lock once, you'll love it twice...

0:51 mark when talking about the benefits he mentioned trains. I did get a kick out of the Chicago style hotdogs when the ketchup bottle is slapped from the hand.

Ah ... YOUR LINK in the first post is to 94 seconds in to the video (not the beginning). I watched what you linked.

I don't see it as a specific plea for railfans to become officers. (The part of the video skipped by your link is corny.)

Moderator Note:
An almost similar topic was just locked recently.

All this is a recruitment video for people to join Metra PD and since I see no railfan relation to it I am locking this Topic.

If any railfan connection comes out then it will be reopened but until then this topic will be locked.
