I thought I's share a few new videos which I took on a recent trip on Amtrak train 20, The Crescent, from New Orleans to Atlanta. These are views from the last car on the train, including a few of crossing the 7-mile long Lake Pontchartrain trestle doing 60mph+. The back window was sort of dirty, but overall, they came out well.

Nice vids, oh and good old short jointed rail too. "Clickety clack", haha Big grin

I particularly like the Pontchartrain trestle vid.

Hope to take a trip on Amtrak again later this year - i've always found it a good experience.  Smile
