Besides photography, I enjoy video taping trains. For the most part, I have used a Sony 8mm Camcorder, but some of the early clips were shot with a old RCA video camera and portable recorder. We now use a digital camcorder, which provides better quality video.
I used to have RealVideo and Windows Media formats available, but have now switched over to You Tube. I get more exposure that way.

In May of 1994, the Union Pacific celebrated the anniversary of the completion of the first transcontinental railroad by running the Challenger, #3985 from Council Bluffs, Iowa, to Ogden, Utah.

The 261 ran on a excursion trip from Chicago to Galesburg, IL and back on June 22, 2002.
