Although I live 1500 miles from Central Florida, I followed the Brightline (now Virgin) forum for quite a while because of these two industry veterans. The back and forth between Mr. Norman and Mr. Weaver was entertaining, but of course, highly informative for an outsider like myself. Noel was certainly passionate about his career, may his knowledge forever serve as a learning tool for those of us not fortunate to live during the good old days.

Is there a sight worse than a rabid foamer sprinting towards your clean photo/video angle with a tripod, so he can set up two feet from the rails?
