    Run8 Train Simulator

    I've got the game, but all of the DLC makes it look like it's something from EA. I liked how MSTS had 3rd party developers, and plenty of freeware. I wish someone would make freeware for Run8.

    Burned out

    I've had on and offs with railfanning. Recently it's been an "on" thing with learning videography. But being at school, I can't get out much to shoot trains.

    Some storm pics from Lima, Ohio

    I've been wanting to get more lightning photos, but the weather here in Washington doesn't cooperate.... Maybe 1 or 2 lightning storms per year, and even then those storms aren't that good.

    Tracks in the Snow 2011

    Thanks Ross and Will. Yeah, the radio clip was the second half of a funny conversation between the engineer and conductor. The pan was hard to do, barely hearing the train over the rushing waters of the falls.

    Tracks in the Snow 2011 Here's the video I put together for the event. First time editing in Sony Vegas, and first time doing a "serious railfanning film." Let me know what you think of it.

    Full Frame Of Mind
