Wow! The Omaha Posse is soaring to new heights! In the second video, the high overhead closing shots of the entire train against the landscape look great.
I would like to make the following suggestions. I have not checked out your other videos, so you may have already done this.
1) Captions: For those of us not familiar with the area, brief captions at the beginning of the video naming the rail lines and directions would be nice. The names of the trains (if known) as they appear would also be informative.
2) Editing: Once the lead engines roll by, all the cars of a unit train tend to look alike until the rear DPUs show up. I think cutting out the middle portions of unit trains would make the videos flow quicker. I have seen this done quite well by photographers taking videos on the ground with the camera mounted on a tripod. It may not be possible using a drone without the video appearing jerky.
Where I live, the use of drones is quite controversial. Make sure you are in compliance with all applicable laws so your fellow Posse members don't have to bail you out of jail.
