    New Progressive Rail pictures and videos I shot today.

    Most of the footage was shot adjacent to the Zigler CAT dealership which you can see quite a bit in the background.

    The video files are a bit large, but they are lengthy clips and worth the download IMO. You'll have to suffer a little download pain if you want to watch the videos.

    The pictures:

    SW1500 #2347 backs out of the siding, the conductor operates the turnout, and the SW1500 comes back on the main route:

    MN&S caboose #102 is used as the lead unit in the long push move through many crossings. The conductor sounds the air horn on the caboose to warn traffic at the crossings:
