    I watched that a few weeks ago. Check out the steam videos in the 'related clips' section. Great stuff.

    Actually it becomes pretty routine after the first few trips and after the excitement wears off it becomes (more or less) oh hum another dirty cab..:ANYWORD:

    After watching Brakies video, I watched some of the ones with UP 844 and the Challenger in them. I want to change eras now.

    Guys,I did not shot the video..I just found it on you tube while looking at videos.It just brought back tons of memories and I posted the video link so you can see how a brakeman/conductor goes about their work.

    There's nothing like a cab ride- 'cept when you're in charge of the loco!

    I've been lucky enough to have 6. 2 in steam (both very short ways), 2 in Diesel (quite a distance, between two major stations) and 2 in electric (one long ride, one short).

    Thanks for sharing the vid!
