The ROCK 3.0: Peoria Operations Video Part II of III

This video went together pretty fast.  It is also shorter at about half the time of the first video.  Here we make the set off and pickup for the TP&W as well as work Allied Iron and Steel.

The ROCK 3.0: Peoria Operations Video Part I of III

It took a while to upload, but here is the video for the Peoria Operations.  The video series will be broken out into four videos.  The first video covers classifying the cars in Peoria and making deliveries to the Peoria & Pekin Union (P&PU) Railway and Burlington Northern (BN) Railroad.

Hopefully, you will find it interesting and not bore you to sleep.

Last night, I worked on recording video for Part II of the Peoria Operations series.

The ROCK 3.0: Video Production

So, post operating session, I re-staged Peoria to create an operating video.  This has been more involved than I would have expected so far.  I took 83 short videos yesterday and I'm no where near being insisted with the local job.  Late last night and today, I worked on putting them together in iMovie.  So far that has been pretty easy.  I think folks might find it interesting to watch. I do at least.

Tonight, I worked on recording more footage.  

I have learned with this local not to overload the other three railroads with staged cars.  I'm paying for it as my moves are limited at times.  Mike warned me of this Saturday that I was right at the limit of how many cars it could handle.  

It is good for the CEO to operate the various jobs so he knows what the crews have to endure.  :-)

Oh, I'm recording all the video with my iPhone.  It works well. It is crazy how technology has evolved.
