My two year old son is absolutely nuts about trains... trains, trains, trains and more trains! So whenever I can I record video of trains so that he can watch them later on. This video is a compilation of several freight trains my kids and I watched pass through Union Station (Kansas City, MO). A plaque near the bridge we were standing on claims that a billion tones of freight passes through this area each year, making it the busiest area for railroad activity in the US. I must admit that it was quite incredible to see how much freight went through here in the 30 minutes we stood watching... enjoy!
Caught a CP to Ottumwa, IA. Where it dropped everything, after an hour I decided to walk 🚶 to the store I seen on the way in, 2 miles back. Another train pulled in during that hour, another CP, while on the way to the store I spotted the DPU that I'm on in the video. Normally, I wouldn't catch a DPU, to risky, but since my first ride dropped and this new train was an all tanker I decided to risk it. Got spotted by one worker who jumped on to check ✔ the engine but he was super cool! Said just stay low and that I'll be rolling into La Crosse within a couple of hours. Artists in the video: Blackfoot; Railroad Man Blackfoot; Train, Train 357 String Band; Ride Again The Rail Yard Ghosts; Dirty Kid Rag (Youtube) Johnny Cash; Ridin' the Rails (Intro&outro) Tim Barry; Train Improv

Didn't hop the A&M because I was dropped there on a Friday and sit through Sunday, didn't realize this line didn't work weekends. Ended up receiving a ride 70 miles or so on down to Van Buren.

This was part of a series of shots I took over two days to see how the camera responds to darkness in the smaller towns compared to lighted cities. Some shots will be good, others not so much - it's all experimentation.

http://www.harborfreight.com 816-436-4200 Good Tools at a GREAT Price - The Service here absolutely rocks! I want to share a snippet from thier site: ABOUT US In 1977, when Harbor Freight Tools was started as a small family-owned business, we made a commitment to provide working people with quality tools at ridiculously low prices. And for over 35 years, Harbor Freight Tools has done just that. From hand tools and generators, to air and power tools, from shop equipment to automotive tools, Harbor Freight offers more than 7,000 tools and accessories at quality levels that match or exceed competing brands, but at prices that are up to 80% less. HOW DOES HARBOR FREIGHT TOOLS KEEP PRICES SO RIDICULOUSLY LOW? First, we buy factory direct and cut out the middlemen. That means you're not pay...

Since I found out I can get internet at the Newton Amtrak station, I decided to test out the webcam stuff to see if this would be more efficient in recording trains. I'll evidently need to be outside because there's not enough dash space to do it inside the car while doing homework. Either way, enjoy my experiment in webcam technology. Also, sorry about the end - I really couldn't find the mouse no matter what angle I shifted the laptop - the sun was at just the right angle to blind me until I used an extreme angle to just get the sun off of the screen.
